Corrected entry: Billy has his cancelled licence returned to him, and he leafs through the contents of the envelope. He held one licence, and one only - a helicopter pilot's licence. Yet he is hired by the CIA to fly fixed wing aircraft in Cambodia for Air America. Flying a fixed wing aircraft is nothing like flying a helicopter. It is a totally different skill set and has a different licencing system. He would have to learn to fly the C123s and Norsemen cargo aircraft almost from scratch. In that case, why would he have been of any interest to an organisation seeking skilled pilots?
Other mistake: When Robert Downey Jr. lowers the helicopter onto the freeway to yell at the truck driver, he is very close to the truck driver, so close that the truck driver can even hit the helicopter. Why does a long haired man standing underneath a helicopter not have his hair blown around?
Billy Covington: I don't wanna crash twice in one day.
Gene Ryack: Don't worry, I crash better that anyone I know.
