Friday Fun: Opening a Beer with a Helicopter

SnowBrains | Friday FunFriday Fun

This week, Chinese helicopter pilots participated in a 3-day tournament to show off their skills and see who’s “the best of the best.”  The final competition involved strapping a bottle opener to the helicopter’s skid and having these pilots open a beer.  You have to open the beer without damaging the bottle.

This is an annual competition that tests pilots’ skills in 6 different events.  This final event, the beer opener event, challenges pilots to open 5 bottles within 8 minutes.  The best pilots opened 4 bottles.  No one got 5.

The pilot in this video nails the move, but ends up breaking the lip of the bottle resulting in a disqualification.

As a skier or snowboarder, you gotta love this.  Now, helicopters are key to your two favorite activities:  sliding on snow & drinking beer.
