helopilot19 Posted July 21, 2013 Report Share Posted July 21, 2013 Hi I am new to the forum and I have a question that has me and a couple others baffled. I have a friend that is looking at buying an R22HP. The helicopter does not have an oil filter installed. According the the maintenance section in the R22 POH 8-6 "If no oil filter is installed change oil every 25 hours." I figured since this in the POH that it is mandatory. In the maintenance manual it says to refer to Lycoming mandatory service bulletin http://www.lycoming.com/support/publications/service-bulletins/pdfs/SB480E.pdf. I know service bulletins are not mandatory unless it is an AD according to the FAA. So what do you guys think, is it mandatory to do the 25 hour or can he just do 50 hour? Thanks Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
