It's strange I've never seen any mention of 429s on this forum.

I have never posted a pic of me with our 429 like this...haha...

Oh wait maybe I did.

I fly for Rocky Mountain Rotors in Montana. VIP on demand charter/135/cinematography/photo/tours. I am also their Chief Flight Instructor for the school side of the company. We also have a small utility side that is quickly expanding.

We also are a factory service center for Robinsons and a Customer service center for Bell covering the 429, 407, 206, and 505.

A days flying can be pretty fun around here. Never know what you might be doing, or with who!

Is that Mark Duffy's company, I heard he was involved in a lancair 4P crash. Is he ok?

Duffy runs Central Helicopters. Sorry to hear he was in a crash. I have not even met the crew there due to observation of conflict of interest between the two companies. Hope he is ok.

Duffy runs mostly KMAX helis and I think a 212?

Those lancair 4P's are constantly crashing. They're pretty cool tho!

https://en.wikipedia...Lancair_Propjet

They apparently have the worst accident rate among kit airplanes, I heard about 12% of all the lancair 4's have crashed!

He runs a KMAX, B214, astar and a 206. So you guys don't talk to the competition?  ;)

So I guess that little tube on the top of the rotor was used  during testing and it's going to be removed?. I have never seen anything like that on other choppers

Hi WolftalonID, from the pic, this one looks to be the skid version but you may be able to help. I am looking for the manual supplement for the wheel version of the 429(WLG). I already have the manual, just looking for the few extra pages for the wheels...

 

Or anybody?

 

Thanks.

 

Kris

Yeah the fun part with Bell is they wont send you a FM without being a customer. I have no idea why. It would be nice to just have them online in PDF format to download when ever needed.

You can only get the manuals for the model the company has. I have the FM for the 429 but Bell won't give you access to the supplements that do not match your model. WolftalonID: thanks anyway.

 

If anybody has the few pages of the wheels supplement for the 429WLG (I think that it is numbered BHT-429-FMS-10), I would appreciate.

 

Cheers.
