Schweitzer 300C to 300CBI transition question


Recommended Posts



I have about 70 hours in the 300C and may check out shortly in a CBI. Other than the CBI being right seat PIC and having less power, what tips could you guys offer? Anything I should be on the lookout for?


The 300C has a max MP based on temp and altitude, the CBi does not, it will take whatever MP you can pull. The cost of that is that you can get RPM droop. Depending on the machine, you can get a low RPM horn when you are in the bottom half of of the green RPM arc. If you fly one with a single tank with an instructor you will notice a tilt to the left in level flight. How much depends on the weight of the instructor.
