Well, I guess no other helicopter pilots have posted anything here so I will start it off with a story. Us helipcopter pilots live by a big rule that some other fix wing only guys and controllers alike don't understand all the time. "Stay out of the flow of fixed wing traffic." So more often than not I find myself asking for a present position take off straight from the ramp. Well, this one time in a towered airport to be nameless, I did just that. I told the conroller I was ready to depart VFR from the ramp on a 350 heading, and I was cleared. So, I take off and all of the sudden the same controller that cleared me for the heading I was on was screaming at me for crossing his runways. Needless to say I asked him as politely as possible to mark the tape and if he wants to talk about it he knows where to find me (Of course, I filed a VFR flight plan, don't we all?). I never did hear back from him. I hope he wasn't expecting me to make a down wind departure or something.
