What's the oldest helicopter you've flown? Is it still flying? Some people get a new car every 3 years, but helicopters go decades with good maintenance. Some go 50 years and are still flying. So I went back to my old logbook.. N83721 was the oldest R22 I ever flew (c/n 0317), built in 1982. The next one was N8491A (1984, c/n 0404) which, last I heard was still up at JT flying. I flew a B47 built in 1953 and it's still around in 2013. That's 60 years! Last week I flew the 4th R44 to come off the line, and our Sheriff's Department just retired their H3H's, designed in 1961 and one of ours was built in 1966. So what's the antique in your logbook? And what's the oldest ship you still flying out there?
