    Behind the Scenes at NewTek - Helicopter Tour

    Today was an amazing day! NewTek's owner Tim Jenison took a few of the staff on a helicopter tour of San Antonio!

    He even practiced a few auto-rotations.. (This means cutting the engine and practicing an emergency landing!)

    Check out the pictures!

    Back in the Moutains on the Canadian border surounded by Deer, Quail, little Bunnies, clean water, air with real oxygen, the toe-headed offspring of the pioneers who settled up here, the neighbor's Milk Cows and Jillions of tiny Chipmunks. Whoo Hoo

    Thanks! It was a blast!

    That is one of the perks of working for NewTek.. You NEVER know what will happen next...

    One minute I'm sitting in the office working on a Saturday. 30 Minutes later, I'm hovering above San Antonio in a Chopper!!

    See Ya,

    It's nice to know that nobody important from Newtek was risking their lives in a Helicopter with rotors disengaged... ;-)

    How do you get the Heli off the trolley?

    You fly it off/on..... it's actually pretty easy once you do it a few times.

    Well...
    If this is recent, I can't WAIT for LW 8.1. I sure hope Tim's working his magic to get more of the tools we DIDN'T get from Peter's team.

    Great pics. Even greater if we get the goods.

    You guys live life.
