Greetings to our most valuable asset PRA Members and thank you for sharing our PASSION!
Welcome to the NEW MODERN PRA Ask an Expert 'Just Solutions' Forum!
PRA's new rotorcraft FORUM will serve a different purpose than most others!
It is all about "Ask the Experts"; with vetted experts, PRA Directors, Manufactures, Vendors, Chapter Coordinator, your PRA Office Manager, and Chapter Directors to provide solutions without the drama and unqualified experts noise found on most forums; except in Off topic forums like our virtual forum.
Our PASSION is flying and building these most amassing aircraft I've ever flown. Get a ride and you will discover one of the best kept secrets of transportation sure; but more like the pure joy of experiencing life as only a bird species has known to exist for millions of years.
PRA's purpose for over 50 years is providing a fact base source of information to the general public by reaching out and providing common tools we all need and then creating groups of friends in local areas as PRA Chapters, with PRA support; providing hands-on instruction and learning while having a party.
Our members owed new MODERN PRA is just doing this in a virtual way.
We invite you as NON-PRA members to learn here too as guests in our classrooms.
However, we are more of a private school where we share what we know for FREE as that is one of PRA's main mission to the general public.
PRA members are all actually trying to learn sophisticated rotorcraft aerodynamics and flight characteristics from experienced teachers.
There are many forums where anyone can be an EXPERT and I use all of them for their purpose and understand I have to know who is providing the advice by reading it for a few years to know who is who in the ZOO!

PRA members are all actually trying to learn sophisticated rotorcraft aerodynamics from experienced teachers more like a library than most forums, hence these rules.
No one can learn anything from name calling = JUST SOLUTIONS and FACTS are allowed!
PRA policy as to who wins the debate is; when it digresses to calling names your argument has LOST as you have no more facts supporting it and are now having a temper tantrum about losing! However PRA is a family
