Hi All, Looking to see if anybody has a shareable map or list of some cool places in Texas (Aside from Salt Lick BBQ ) that takes helicopter landings, or is happy to share the places they'd recommend? Looking for restaurants/bars, along with cool private sites or activities. There was an old thread for this where it looked like someone started to make a shareable directory but it's no longer Any recommendations appreciated! Please also feel free to DM (Also looking to go to Louisiana & Florida so anywhere there is appreciated too!) Thanks, Todders

What's the number? Sometimes numbers are recycled after previous aircraft are no longer registered. https://registry.faa.gov/aircraftinquiry/Search/NNumberInquiry

Thank you for the info everyone. I’ve looked back at the video and the N# is crystal clear. But when I do the inquiry it comes back to a jet. No such thing as a duplicate number or a different number for helicopters? Excuse the ignorance please.

This Robinson is left on Rhodes Island Greece 2km from my house. The irony? The owner was here 2 weeks ago and i didn't know. His name is Bruce Chen Lee. The one that did the damage on the helicopter i know who he is and it's a crazy story. I went as a middle man on a sale for a villa and as i went there i found the dashboard of the helicopter. Κept my mouth shut and i am hunting info for 5 months now. Can we find anything about the owner? Or better who was servicing the aircraft In France? i contact every dealer there but half of them never replied back. Youtube video here
