klmmarine Posted March 4, 2007 Report Share Posted March 4, 2007 (edited) I had to take a ride in an S-76C+ today. I have to admit I was hoping for a light twin so I could sit up front but now I am glad it didn't happen. The C+ has a great autopilot that was fun to watch in action, although a little erie to be watching the collective move up and down all by itself. Automatic climbs, descents, and of course 165 knot cruise speed. I had to think twice when I noticed the pilots were doing things with their hands that would not be conducive to straight and level flight, had the ship not been under control of the autopilot that is. It just solidified that my intentions to be flying for a living and not driving boats. Now if I could just get below 240 (5lbs to go...)
