ahh well, multiquote gone...I was going to say thanks for the lens offer, and I didn't know that helicopters did not like a full load, hovering in the summertime.
Your welcome on the offer. It would be kind of weird for me to say no. Not my style
Any aircraft has reduced performance in hot weather or at higher altitudes, just physics making itself known. There are many ways for the pilot to deal with it. Less passengers, less fuel, less cargo, etc. I only brought it up originally just in case the pilot may be thinking of leaving a seat empty to keep the load within tolerances, as it might alter the cost per person. But mumbles said it was the pilots idea (July that is), so it obviously isn't an issue. No harm, no foul.
Hopefully this will take place. Shooting from the air opens up all sorts of nice image opportunities, and its a hell of a lot of fun as well. I highly recommended it for those that haven't done so yet. Bring lots of memory cards, and shoot non-stop from lift off to landing!
