If I am not mistaken, this is not the first helicopter accident the Boven family has undergone. I also know for a fact that there have been FAA complaints registered against him for the manner in which he flew his helicopters. It is sad that this has happened, but not very surprising.

Boven's daughter says her father left in the same fashion he lived his life. I mean no disrespect but he went out doing what he loved doing. If only we all could be so lucky......

You are mistaken. My dad has not been in a previous helicopter crash nor has he received any complaints from the FAA for his manner of flying. He was the only surviving passenger in a plane crash nearly 20 years ago, he was not the pilot. It is sad and very surprising. My dad was a competent pilot and a considerate man.
