  1. Robinson R66 flight training being offered for $660/hr dual for the next four weeks only. This isn't a offer of paying to fly along on a commercial job - it's a discounted rate on helicopter training. You'll fly with one of our CFIs and practice the maneuvers you want to work on. The helicopter lives in McMinnville, Oregon at Jerry Trimble Helicopters. We're an hour outside of Portland, and have student housing a couple miles from the airport. You can find more information about the aircraft at our website. If you have more questions, give us a shout at the number below or come down to the airport and check it out! http://www.jerrytrimblehelicopters.com/robinson-r-66/ (503) 577-6371

Would love to hear from anyone with experience (good and bad) on 12 years, specially on Service Center referrals. Fly safe! Eduardo.

  5. Looking to lease an R44 helicopter as soon as possible and can offer 300 plus flight hours in 3 months. Looking for a dry lease. If you know anyone interested please let me know. Or if you have any suggestions they will be greatly appreciated!
  6. On the R-22, there is what seems to be a 4th control arm coming out of the fairing under the hub. It's the one at 180 degrees azimuth. Is that apparent control arm actually the non-rotating scissor?

  10. I was wondering if some of you could post a few reputable leasing companies on this forum. I want to crunch some numbers. Must of the "numbers" so far, tell me its a terrible idea and way to much risk and money, but I just want to make sure. Looking for an R-22. I don't think I can meet 40 hours a month. At least not at first. From my understanding their is a monthly minimum of hours I need to fly. Not sure if this can vary depending on who I lease from. Thank you for your time and providing me information. Much appreciated.
  11. I hope this is the right area to post this topic. I currently live in Bakersfield, CA and I have 400 hours in Robinson helicopters. About 60% r-44 time and 40% r-22 time. I was wondering if anyone on here knows information on the current market and demand for helicopters in this area. I know there are a lot of private helicopters that do not advertise but they are heavily involved in frost protection and the agriculture industry. I am mainly just looking for some info and potential work (any work in the industry, not just flying). So far, the only local helicopter companies I know are SRT and San Joaquin Valley helicopters. I know I should move locations to get myself a job, but I currently do not have that option. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
  12. CFII seeking time building / ag / ferry opportunities of all kinds. Experience ferrying from Los Angeles to Seattle / Wenatchee 2x and from Los Angeles to Prudhoe Bay, Alaska and back. If you are bringing a ship back from a cherry contract or back from Alaska at the end of the season I'd be delighted to copilot.
  13. Has anyone ever heard of an R22 engine overspeed that was between 110 & 116%, but left the rotor below 110% (split needles)? Can belts normally slip like that with a sudden increase in throttle/torque or A> There is an issue with the belt tension settings B> The flight crew's perception/interpretation of the tachs was incorrect C> Something else? If it was A> is there anything you could detect on a preflight or on engine run-up (blades taking more than 5 seconds to turn etc?) Regards
  14. Hello. LunarCat Labs has started to make some free youtube videos/graphical animations. (I have completed one as of this post). It is free on youtube for anyone to view. So far, my plan for the videos is to have them be supplements that help visually display the concepts being learned. I have started by making a video on Energy Management. I think I will do an SFAR intro next or some of the other SFAR topics.... Not sure yet. I am just now learning the software (blender) I used to make the animations so hopefully the videos will get better as I get better. Enjoy and feel free to comment.
  15. I am looking for a lease vendor with an R44 Clipper II available in mid May through June. The business is in cooperation with an established non-flying tourist location with airport access. Lease term may expand through September with the right aircraft and features. Please contact me directly at: 1heliguy@gmail.com
  16. I designed this helicopter "RPM" logo after spending far too long looking at the rotor and engine tachometer instrument in the Robinson R22 helicopter. It is a subtle, but cool reference to R22 helicopters and being an R22 heli pilot. Check out my new RPM Logo stores out: http://www.zazzle.com/rpmlogo and http://www.cafepress.com/rpmlogo
  17. 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)
  18. 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.
  19. 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
