Decending back down to around 1000ft we visit downtown LA. After circling around the skyscrapers (try doing that in the UK!) we head back home to Long Beach. What an awesome flight!!
We leave Burbank airspace, and it’s time to pull the collective up to maximum continuous power, bring the speed back to 60kts, and start a climb up to 6500ft as we take in the Mt. Wilson Observatory.
Turning right at Santa Monica, we head towards the Hollywood Hills and buzz the famous sign.
Flying out over the Pacific coast from Long Beach to Santa Monica. A helicopter transit through LAX airspace involves going low level at less than 150ft over the beach underneath the main arrival/departure path. Great fun!!!
