For an adult, especially one who knows even basic information about the subject matter- this video is exceptionally boring. However, for a young adult, child, or family-safe program- this is a good and worthwhile selection.

I am a pilot and love almost anything that has to do with aviation. This video is well made of course for IMAX and it touches on a few different areas in the helicopter industries. Loved it and would suggest to anyone for education or just for entertainment.

Great For Helicopter Careers March 22 2005
By S. D. Rapp - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
This DVD is a great sampling if you're interested in helicopters and/or the type of career opportunities they offer. There's a great sequence servicing high-power lines, some logging action from the Pacific Northwest, and a basic flying lesson! This was originally an IMAX film, so the quality is very good. No, it's not screaming helicopter action, because it shows you the real world of what helicopters are mostly used for. I also recommend checking out the bonus features, there's even better stuff in there.

Excellent documentary with amazing footage Feb. 28 2008
By Raymond Debs - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
This is an excellent video that I would recommend to anyone interested in helicopters. The videography is amazing, and while the narration is written to be understood by children, it is interesting for adults too (unless maybe they are heli-pilots who already know everything). I particularly liked the segments on the high-power line inspections and the rhino relocation.

My wife is enamoured with the idea of helicopters, and I was happy to encourage her fascination. Hopefully I'll be able to get a license some day.

Outstanding Flying July 12 2007
By George J. Mcneil - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Some outstanding flying - especially the power line repairs, great photography. Pity it was so short. There are a lot more opportunities to capture helicopters in action

My son loves this Aug. 7 2011
By homeschoolmom - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I bought this for my two year old. He is three now. He has watched this repeatedly during the past year. It is his "go to" video. And the great thing about it is that my husband, older children, and myself enjoyed watching it the first several times too!!! This definitely not a kids video in that it was created for adults, but kids seem to love it. I have bought it for gifts for little boys knowing that parents will thank me.

helicopter enthusiast Nov. 30 2010
By M Olson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I've loved helicopters for as long as I can remember. I've worked two summers in Alaska at the premier Helicopter Tour Guide company in the southeast, and spent a lot of time around them (mostly A-stars, B2's, some conversions, also a 214 and few 500's). This documentary makes me miss them all. The information is accurate, pertinent, interesting and engaging. The aircraft featured are from a wide variety of manufacturers, regions and purposes. The narration isn't spectacular, but I don't watch it because of the writing. I watch it because of the filming. The locations, style and subject all vary for each portion.

I recommend this film to any parent with kids like me, and any helicopter enthusiast, whether your burgeoning or full-blown.
