  3. yes -- bug work at hatch -- raw chem only no carrier -- rotary atomizer very uniform droplet starts out about 6 " rotation expands greatly reving at about 5000 rpm. Deposition very good and consistant no gaps. Low volume work so 100 gallons goes a looong way.

  7. Hi Pete-- skeeter season is on, calibrate this week. I am seeking the waiver for the Huey when enroute to/from fire suppression activities,CWN Restricted TC--- no external just transit -- have re-submitted waiver will see. For the spraying --CAP's go thru well, as most all are special airwothiness for restricted operations. Had our first good fire last week, got current with bucket several newbies this season for the row crop work -so been busy training. Have a good season. Mike.
  8. Looking to get waiver from 91.313 (E) 1 thru 3 regarding Restricted TC over congested area to get to fire fighting activity from primary base to anywhere USA cwn. Special purpose operation -fire suppression activity external load. Local FSDO not cooperating. I would think 91.313(a)(2) would allow, as necessary to conduct special purpose operation for which certified. ??? any advise? thankx I know waivers are issued for this -- maybe not worded correctly ??
  9. for your basic training shop around. serious price difference for your primary training. Doing your primary training in turbine will wind up limiting you for possible jobs for low time pilot as most are recip. Once rated if you have the money go for it very experienced instructors,nice equipment you will come out a better aviator from the training. P/w carries alot of weight regarding insurance and job prospects. my .02
  10. Industrial Aviation Louisianna runnin an ad for aerial applicator r/w. www.industrialaviation.com
  11. SikorskyPilot - to stay on point to your original question 1. AC-133-1A (9) (A) (1 thru 4) 2. FAA- local FSDO 3. subject to POI interpretation -if building vacant other than ground support flight path meets criteria --probably would be viewed as non -conjested. for 91 0pps ref: 91.119(D) Timbersprayer
