Company working for

  1. I run a company involved in educating local youth in aviation. We also offer helicopter flight training. We had an R22 through a friend of ours that a buddy of his owns, but he recently leased it to another company who was guaranteeing a LARGE number of hours per month due to their sheer size.. That leaves us looking to lease something as soon as possbile! We have scheduled events and I would rather not cancel these events, as well as a couple student about to start regularly scheduled training. I've looked into, but haven't really contacted companies recently, like spritzer... They told me before they had nothing in stock at the moment, but I could check back with them. If anyone knows of a place I could obtain an R22 ASAP, please respond, or even pm me.. It would be very much appreciated! Thanks everyone!
  2. Robinson just released updates to the R22 and R44 POH, main points of interest being changes to the clutch light emergency procedure (now 10 seconds and land as soon as practical unless other indications) and the section on use of carburetor heat/assist. I am trying to fully understand the implications of the new Safety Notice SN-25 on carburetor ice, where it talks about an additional 1.5 in. Hg of MAP. Read the SN here:http://www.robinsonheli.com/srvclib/rchsn25.pdf The final paragraph reads (I added emphasis): Carburetor heat reduces engine power output for a given manifold pressure. Approximately 1.5 in. Hg additional MAP is required to generate maximum continuous power (MCP) or takeoff power (TOP) with full heat applied. The additional MAP with carb heat does not overstress the engine or helicopter because power limits are still being observed. Since the engine is derated, it will produce TOP at lower altitudes even with full heat. However, avoid using more heat than required at high altitudes as the engine may reach full throttle at less than MCP or TOP. Does that mean that the pilot can pull an additional 1.5 MAP over the determined MAP limits when operating with full carb heat? Or is it saying that the additional 1.5 in. Hg will be applied even though the manifold pressure gauge shows you are at normal MAP limit for the day? Any thoughts? Many thanks in advance. Jay (R22/R44 pilot)
  3. Ok guys, Here's my situation. Obviously I'm new here so here's my background. I'm 26 years old, a prior Marine and a homebred MV-22 Osprey guy. I've been an Airframe Mechanic on this AC since '05 and have work for Boeing and Dyncorp for this platform. I'm about tired of maintenance and ready to start flying! I intend to use my GI Bill to attend the Community College of Baltimore County and do the ground school through them so I can use my GI Bill to its fullest. I have the option of going to Part 141 or 61 as long as I go through the school. Here is where I need help: I have narrowed it down to American Helicopters in Manassas, VA who have R22's, R44's and one Bell 206B III. On the other side I have Bussmann Aviation a.k.a. Heloflights apparently flying out of the same airport with an MD-500. Now it's my understanding that I can go up to Commercial and I may be able to weasel my way into CFI but lets assume the former. If I could only go up to Commericial for "Free" which option would be the better choice? I would assume going with the MD since, in my opinion, it would be free Turbine hours but I guess not much PIC. Well that's all I can think of folks, I'm coming off shift and ready to crash out. Thank you all for your help and support! - Corey
  4. Hello Forum, I am rather new to all of this internet job searching, I am used to the older days of finding work by going into a place and asking for an application. So hopefully this finds you all and you can help give me some pointers or direct me towards a CFII job or building hours to get that CFII job. I am a recent graduate from Bristow Academy here in New Iberia, LA. I have a total of 172.2 hours in helicopters and 37.1 of that is in R22. I know that in order to instruct in the R22 I need 200TT and 50 hours in the R22. So that is the next goal is to get me to that amount of hours. I am basically willing to do whatever it takes to get to that goal. Pay for flights, tag along on ferry flights. If there is anyone out there that knows the quickest and reasonable price for building hours please let me know, whether on here or my email lmtcharvey@yahoo.com. I am not shooting boatpix down but I do not need any information about them, already been contacted and did my research, I am okay with finding a different route. Your responses are much appreciated!! Thank You.
  5. Anyone interested in a potential helicopter training location on the south side of Atlanta? Right now the only option in Metro Atlanta is out of the Dekalb-Peachtree location (KPDK). There is a proposal to start up a training location out of Peachtree City - Atlanta Regional Airport (KFFC). Would like to know what kind of interest there is in this type of training in a area currently void of such training. Both Part 61 and Part 141 training options are on the table and are in the planning stages. More information to follow as things develop but would like to to hear from potential students if this location would be a valid consideration for them. Plans would be to train in the R-44 initially with the R-22 based on demand. Obviously, the R-22 is more economical so this certainly is in the planning stages. Prices would be competitive with other local flight training areas and could be up and running within a month (Part 61) and shortly thereafter for Part 141 training. Please respond/post if you would be interested and any details on potential start dates, etc. You may also PM me for additional information on the start up process.
  6. Hi All, I have 127.9 dual hours for sale in a Robinson R22 at American Helicopters in Manassas, VA. I have recently moved to California and will not be able to use the hours I have left. I'm willing to sell in any amount but I would prefer to sell in blocks. 1hr Block - 260/hr 5hr block - 240/hr 10hr block -220/hr If you're interested, please email me at reidtony15@gmail.com. Please make sure to mention that you're interested in buying hours in the subject line so I don't delete your email and can find you if you accidentally get spammed. Tony Reid
  7. Funny cartoon poke at robbie pilots - Robbie Driver, an arrogant low, time, British R22 helicopter pilot impromptu interviews with CYA Helicopters in the Gulf of Mexico for a Bell 407 flying job in support of offshore oil production. Totally what not to do when job hunting. PS. It’s a joke, so do not watch if you are easily offended. My favorite quote, "Miss Boushay, you are starting to piss me off!"
