Hauling a 206


Recommended Posts

I'm looking to haul a 206B across the country. I know many will say to ferry the bird, but I feel hauling will save me more money. I have heard road vibrations can lead to damage in tailcone, rotors, pitchlinks, etc. I'm looking for some advice from those who have hauled a 206 and suggestions on trailer length, axle position, suspension, etc... I wouldn't mind hearing some horror stories on hauling if you have them too!

Seen it done right and seen it done wrong...wrong could be an expensive mistake. You're taking the right step by researching thoroughly. Can't help personally but some good reading here:



If no one on the board can help on Bells maybe reach out to folks that do it regularly for advice:

Well you could just find a lowtimer to pay you to ferry it!


,...but if you really want to ship it, Rotocraft Pro always has an ad in it from a company that hauls choppers! farreninternational.com

Get a trailer that was built to haul around helicopters, they are out there. A lot of AG guys trailer everywhere. I trailered a Hiller from CA to NE, I took the blades off, strapped everything down nicely and no troubles.


The biggest mistake guys make is trying to "firm" them up: blocking under the tail, holding the blades rigid, etc...they NEED to be able to flex like they do it flight.
