A helicopter focused podcast show, by helicopter aircrew for helicopter aircrew.
Everyday, all over the world, helicopter crews are sharing stories with each other. Some of them are captured here.
The Rotary Wing Show mission is to:
- Share the stories of helicopter pilots doing amazing jobs
- Grill the experts on topics that can boost safety or operational effectiveness, and
- Spread the passion that we have for these machines.
About the Host:
Mick Cullen is an ex-Australian Army pilot and now part-time instructor with several side projects (like this show).
^^ everyone thinks this is Tom Cruise but it is actually the Rotary Wing Show host. And a plug for Aeropower Flightschool while we are at it.
He flew Kiowa, Iroquois and Blackhawk helicopters while in the Army and juggled several other hats (Unit Maintenance Test Pilot, CRM Facilitator, Electronic Warfare Officer, Aviation Safety Officer). Along the way he was a NVG captain, multi-engine command instrument rated, operated to ships, conducted special operations flights and served in East Timor, Solomon Islands and Aech.
A survivor of multiple attempts on his life from HUET instructors, not a fan of flying with contact lenses and gas masks, spent 60 days continuous embarked and like most Army pilots has stuff all flying hours to show for it!!
These days Mick moonlights as a R22 and H269 instructor in Brisbane, Australia.
With more questions than answers, this show is an excuse for Mick to learn more and bring a few brave aviators along for the ride.
