Progress: Case for a Dedicated Helicopter / VTOL Forum

Wed Jan 31, 2018 5:07 pm

A Great Opportunity to Enhance A.net with a Fresh New Dedicated Helicopter / VTOL Forum.

It's a unique, developing big segment with hundreds of interesting topics. Maybe new Advertisers too.

A.net must keep innovating to remain #1!

Who has to be convinced ?!

A shot I took opportunitically a month ago (patient seemed relatively ok).

I think the nice thing about a helicopter forum would be

:arrow: it isn't there, it might attarct a new group of enthusiasts / professionals / sponsors
:arrow: the variety of technologies / operators & applications
:arrow: helicopters are everywhere and so much is happening / was hapenning in the past, new topics never should be an issue

I took the shot below in Feb in the alps. The local rescue teams hands over the patient. The doctor was brought to the patient to collect her. The pilot was waiting for them to return and can now be seen on the right side scanning the area he'll fly into minutes later.

Shame seems like no one is listening,so no change there then.Also why on Earth would you lump military aircraft with 'civilian' space programmes?
Both these areas Civilian VTO and Space programmes are (as stated) going through technological revolutions yet the site as a whole still bitches on the size of chrome bumpers of (insert model here) aircaft.
Which begs the question.Is A net for aircraft enthusiasts or the last bastion for people suffering from OCD?

This idea was raised in the Rules update thread. As noted by one of the other moderators

The politics forum has been requested by a large number of users, because political subjects have completely dominated the Non Aviation Forum for quite some time. There's a very active group of users who participate in Non Av, but are tired of being inundated with politics. Splitting it into a dedicated forum would ensure that only users wanting to see political discussion would be exposed to it. A helicopter/UAV forum is an interesting idea, but this is literally the first time I've heard that suggested. I'm not saying it wouldn't work, but we'd need to see a significant interest in the idea before we could consider it. Some users are already upset when topics are moved from Civ Av to a more appropriate forum, so a further splitting of aviation topics might not be very popular.


As noted we would need to see significant interest from users before we could consider it. We are not against the idea but we need to justify that a new sub forum not only on the subject of the new forum but whether there is enough users interested in it , and this goes for whether its a helicopter forum or something else.
