Today when I was arriving at home I heard some strange sound.
Every day there are few helicopters flying here in the mountains but that one did not sound right.
30 or 40 seconds later it came down from small wally here op in the mountain and landed on a
field not far away from my house.

Can see why whirly bird didn't sound right.  The pilot forgot to unwrap it prior to flight...

Great captures Interestingly, its got a German registration
If it landed due to problems you could be in for some very interesting recovery pics - unless it ends up like the Dakota at Sólheimasandur - then you'll have even more photo opportunities

Sight seeing tours?  Winter Heli-Skiing?   Drop-off / pick-up mountain climbers?  ???

Mostly Heli-Skiing. There are 3 Heli-Skiing companies here in 15 Km radius from my home.
Two of them have permission to use my land for Heli-Skiing.

Thanks, these are rented from a company in Austria, don't know the name.
Last years it has mostly been copters from Air Greenland which these Heli-Skiing company have used.
The main problem was lost hydro oil pressure in controls.
It has been fixed but will stay here because of fog until the they can fly it back.

Thanks, the only thing I don't like is the WB.
Did update this morning and something seams to have changed in settings.
Did not notice until later.

No need for NFZ, they mostly use the same area depend on time of day.
We just call them and ask if they are flying in the area BEFORE we fly, or just fly close and low.
