An Australian man spending the afternoon water-skiing with his son can’t figure out what all the fuss is about. After all, he wasn’t piloting the helicopter towing his son recklessly. “It’s a witch-hunt,” Milton Jones says. “He was home from boarding school. I only see him for a few weeks each year and we were just having a bit of fun. It was perfectly safe. I’ve been flying for 20 years and am very experienced. All the yahoo has gone out of me by now.” Unfortunately the Civil Aviation Authority doesn’t think helicopter skiing is a wholesome father-son activity and has threatened legal action.
