in clouds while flying with my students? I sometimes like to challenge myself and poke into small clouds around 2-3k feet. Last week I was in one for like 3 minutes! It was a little scary but i feel like I learned so much.

I sure hope this is a Troll because nobody could be that stupid to stay in the clouds for three minutes.

I'm just trying to get better at my passion. 3 minutes isn't that long. It was stratocumulus couds i think so it wasn't bumpy. I tried to go into a cumulus cloud and the low g thing scared me in the R-22. 

I'm actually better at IFR stuff now.

To capitalize every word in a headline, or at the beginning of each sentence, or any formal noun. What country are you from?

No, it's not 'okay', especially with students on an instructional flight.

Minimum visibility:

91:155 For helicopters: Day 1⁄2 statute mile Clear of clouds

You're violating the FARs and endangering lives- you don't know what else, who else is in that cloud. That's what you're obligated to the student to teach and you should learn as quickly as possible.

If you want to practice instrument skills, there are ways to do it safely.

If this isn't somebody's idea of a joke, a troll, it's an advertisement of future Darwin Award.
