I am going on a helicopter tour of Kauai this coming weekend. Having never been on a helicopter, I am somewhat unclear what to expect. You have to take into account the fact that just recently I flew on a propeller plane for the first time. There was fear for many years about small planes.
First, will it be much colder up there than on ground? Lihue will be about 75 degrees. Should I wear something other than shorts, t-shirt and windbreaker? I plan to do the do-rag bandana
thing to keep my hair from flying all over the place.
Second, should I expect a lot of dipping, swerving and otherwise radical movements of the helicopter itself? If there is cloud cover, will they go a bit lower so we can see more clearly? If it’s windy at ground level, will it be much worse aloft?
I think I’ll be alright, as long as Carrot Top or Hunter S. Thompson aren’t piloting.
