Piloting an helicopter over Rome.

Hi to all.
Last day i spent some hours piloting an helicopter over Rome.
It was a Robin22 (R22), one of the most famous training and commercial helicopters.
Take off and landing from Rome "Urbe" airport, the third airport of the city, especially used for general aviation.
In this airport i purchased my pilot license in the far 1991 but now everything changed.
Many beautiful helicopters on the apron:


AW139 of Italian Air Force (used by Pope Francesco and the Prime Minister)















one of the many Cessna 172 used by general aviation and training (mine was I-SMAU, probably now scrapped, and my instructor was an ex Italian Air Force F-104 and Tornado pilot)






the ATC tower in the background



the old hangar



my helicopter for today's flight, a R22









After the usual checks we are ready for taxiing









runway 34-16 ahead







takeoff

After an hour of flight, landing at Urbe airport.
Beautiful flight and beautiful experience.
