Video: landing a helicopter next to a BBQ restaurant

Airplane pilots are familiar with the concept of the $100 hamburger, a flight to a nearby airport for lunch or dinner that combines food, friends and flying. These missions are a lot of fun, but in a helicopter they are even better. In this video, watch as a student pilot flies a Robinson R22 helicopter to one of the world’s best barbecue restaurants and lands in the grass right next door. You’ll learn some of the finer points of off-airport landings, plus see how much fun you can have with a pilot certificate.
