Kamal Nuru puts Richard in a smock, hands over some clippers, and shows him how it’s done at Levels Barbershop in Harlem. He’s operated giant pieces of machinery, but can Richard keep a steady enough hand to give a proper Harlem style haircut? Then, Richard steps into the 617,000 square foot Robinson Helicopter factory in Torrance, CA. As an owner and pilot of a Robinson R44 helicopter, Richard knows how helicopters fly. Now he’s going to learn how they’re built. Joining the nearly 1,300-person workforce, he must help build and test fly a brand new helicopter, the R66 Turbine. But will his creation be cleared for take-off?
