  1. The longer tail boom length is also a factor in the difference between the two. The more hours you spend flying the 44 the easier it will get.
  2. I cant see any video here - All I see is the play bar and nothing else..
  3. What a great post - thanks for taking the time to write it. Whilst I'm nowhere near a commercial pilot, nor am I planning to be anytime soon, I do have extensive experience in the offshore oil and gas sector and drone surveys. The above assessment in my opinion is about the most accurate description of the future state of the market. In addition, I see a further decline in offshore oil heli-ops due to the decreasing market for the product. The world is slowly but surely weaning itself away from oil - it's not all environmentally focused either, there are Geo-political reasons involve
  4. Sniff sniff.... Is there a bull in here somewhere?
  5. I remember seeing that somewhere, it was part built when I saw it - wonder if it ever got finished, if so, wonder if it's still flying?
  6. Sounds like a quiet and peaceful place - what would the neighbours think about it?
  7. Great read NR, thanks for posting.! The forum has indeed been a bit dead of late, however, I'm a permanent lurker, and have been for quite some time. I'm with you on all the comments above, however I feel the checklist, in particular, is important. Sometimes most mistakes are made when we are carrying out a repetitive task, it's sooo easy to omit something - 99.9 times out of a 100 this would be something more or less trivial, something that won't have too much of an effect - that other 0.1% though represents a catastrophic omission that could result in a bad day.
  8. For anyone else reading theres some video / pictures here: https://aviation-safety.net/wikibase/225121
  9. Wow. What a great post. It's the best response I've read to date that explains it like that.
  10. Bonjour Alejandro, avez-vous essayé ce site? Ils vendent des pièces MD500 reconditionnées: http://www.helicopterparts.com/f_hmd.html?2 J'espère que ça aide!
  11. That was a great read- thanks for posting!
  12. I stopped reading the digital issues a long tme ago, they are way too difficult to read on a PC - constantly zooming in and out all the time, it's a terrible format. Have you thought about releasing a PDF version to go alongside it? I'm sure it'd be way more popular.
  13. Great video.! I liked the waste gate set up. What would be the rough guide to total costs for those 10 improvements?
