"Some days when I am stressed from work, and I arrive home, look up at the sky and choose a great big cloud to go and sit on, I get my Bell Jetranger helicopter out of the hangar and fly up to the cloud and hover just above it, slowing the helicopter down to the same speed and height as the cloud, it is an amazing feeling.
