Aviation Facts and Figures for Fort Myers, FL
Helicopter Pilot Training Tidbits: A big selling point of helicopters is that you can land in your backyard. Where then would be the best place to learn to hover? An airport with a 12,000' runway and a 7,500' crosswind runway. You want a lot of open space where you're guaranteed not to hit anything. You want somewhere that neighbors won't complain about the noise. You want somewhere with long sight lines to the horizon so that you won't concentrate your gaze in too close.
