Mandatory

The Cessna 150 manual has a 100 hr as well and you dont need to do that under 91 either. Helicopter or airplane is no different. You had better be able to tell the FISDO wonks what inspection you are using and why, as a lot of them are misinformed. CFR 91.409 is pretty clear. As I stated above the only part of almost all maintenance manuals in the US that is FAA approved is chap 4.
FAA clarification on mandatory..,
