Welcome to our newest member, 1Calidus4me.

Welcome to the Updated Rotary Wing Forum!


We have gone through a major upgrade. We are aware there are still several issues to resolve but also wanted to get the forum back up and running. We will continue to sort out issues over the next couple weeks. You will also see the look and feel of the forum improve as we dig into the all the features now available on the updated software.
