Welcome to the Helicopter Site : HeliStart

This website is your introduction to the world of helicopters (also called rotary wing aircrafts). It will not only provide you with a great deal of information, but will also serve as a guide to helicopters and everything you might want to know about them, such as flight training, simulators, manufacturers, and regulations. An important part of the website is the helicopter database, which is well utilized and appreciated by the rotorhead community. The Helistart website serves an international audience, and its task is to make it easy for you to find your way around the world of aviation, with the helicopter as its prime subject-matter.

I am a Safety Officer for a police/medevac aviation unit in Virginia, USA.  I found your site using a Google search while looking for safety topics to share with my co-workers.  I wanted to take a moment to tell you that I am very impressed with your site.  I find it full of useful information and very easy to use.  I plan on visiting many times in the future to help gather and share information.  Keep up the good work!

Great collection of information! A minor suggestion about the site itself. Would it be possible to change the default page load behaviour to not autofocus on the comment input? On tablets, the site brings up the on screen keyboard every single time you navigate to a different page.
