Heli Expo 2023

It was nice to Schweizer back in the marketplace as I wandered over to their booth at the show in Atlanta over a fortnight ago and seem to be doing ok since re opening the product line the other year in Texas. Here are my photos of their A300C which was trucked into the show.

Love the product, without doubt the best training helicopter, but the price of a new one makes the eyes water, more than a G2 , almost all students I have shown pix of G2 compared to 300C all would but the G2 on looks, speed and baggage compartment ! As for spares prices RSG have joined with the rest of the industry as to whom can rip the customer off the most ! I really hope it works for them, as i have 4 of them

Fort Rucker TH-55 and Spanis

SASless did you train on the Mattel Messerchmidt at Fort Rucker?? Out of interest up to the point when the Th-55 Osage variant was retired, wonder how many of our Army Air Corps exchange folk at Fort Rucker flew , instructed on it during the 70s/80s?

Also re the delivery the other day of the first Airbus H135 to the Spanish AIr Force training school, I remember it was 3 decades ago that they operated the S300 for primary flight training across their armed forces with the Sikorsky S-76 for advance multi engine training.

Hellenic Army Aviation and Turkish Land Forces also use/used the TH300 as i recall...
