Default YouTube episodes: Flying the bush and associated pilot training in Indonesia



Youtube has four "reality" episodes (appx. 46 minutes each) of commuter/bush flying and pilot training in mountainous Indonesia. The series is titled
Worst Place to be a Pilot

I'd say over half of the time the flying involves Pilatus Porters and the rest Cessna Caravans. In Episode 3 there is a segment that gives a quick "feel" for the series. If you don't want to spend the time watching full episodes you might enjoy a 5-6 minute segment on ferrying diesel fuel to a remote airstrip. To do so:

Click on: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A6khdFu9FJE ........and run the advance bar/button to the 33 minute point where they are loading barrels of diesel fuel on board a Pilatus Porter. The segment then runs 5-6 minutes to about the 38 minute point.
Hope this is of interest to some full scale pilots.

Love that kind of show, thanks for the link. Why skip forward though, looks like something to watch from the start. I think these shows are great, even for non scale pilots. Hope they are more like a national geographic show than a real wives of bel aire type of show. Seems like drama and fake danger have to be built into any shows now involving flying.

thanks again.

Glad you thought it was worthwhile. I got the feeling that this was not made up stuff as evidenced by the crashed aircraft, obviously nervous flight instructors and very serious looking Indonesians on the ground and in the passenger seats.

Edit: The link in the O.P. above has decayed over time so just do a search on "Worst Place to be a Pilot" and then scroll to the recommended point.

Aku di U.S.A. dan saya menggunakan google translate. Menyambut! Apakah Anda terbang model pesawat? Apakah ada forum internet minat khusus di Indonesia di mana Anda bisa berkomunikasi dengan selebaran lain ??

Menyarankan menggunakan situs di bawah untuk membuat Inggris
posting rc pertanyaan di daerah ini : http: //www.rcuniverse.com/forum/beginners-85/

I'm giving "Google translate" a shot in communicating here. This poster is looking for a Rc community as there evidently is none in Indonesia.
