New AD for old Robinson M/R Blades, 5 year life


Recommended Posts

I'm still instructing in a true "300". That is a Hughes 269B model produced in 1966. The factory (sikorsky) has new blades available on the shelf right now and the B model hasn't been produced since 1970. Sure, everyone complains about the price of parts... a set of 3 is $66000 or more than 1/2 what the helicopter is worth... but they are still available. The 300C will be around another 40 years easy.... Not the cheapest training helicopter... so don't look for it in that role. Just spoke with a school that has a couple and a private student wadded one up a couple months ago... he just can't find it the "right" thing to do to go with a robinson. Everybody understands.
