Ive ridden in a Black Hawk and a Huey. Both military spec ones. Choppers are fun! The Black Hawk over the Black Hills of South Dakota, saw Mount Rushmore from the air! And a Huey over Devils Lake, ND. So cool!

Bells are fine, but I think Eurocopter is where it's at right now.

A bell 412, 430, 206, and a 429 all look distinctively different... Not to mention the new 525 relentless. I have flown Eurocopter's and can tell you, Bell is where it is at. Fennestron anti torque systems may look cool but in my experience they're generally more squirrelly. Do you guys have experience piloting these aircraft?

Yep, flown in many eurocopters last one was the As355 twin squirrel also flown the gazelle and ec120

Flying a jet ranger in October

And while I agree to an extent on looks te bell 206 looks fairly similar upto the 222/430 obviously you have the 212 and 414 but I know what I mean! I personally prefer the eurocopters for looks and performance although in an engine failure the 206 has a nice amount of inertia in the blades!

In the army we learn on the 206 first for primary and instruments, then transition. I much prefer my twin engine HH-60M over the weed whacker. No creature comforts, but always fun.
