hey guys I'm posting this again because we are still looking for an EASA certified EMS Kit for the 350/355 series. Used condition would be the best. Any ideas ?

Can anyone explain and define the meaning in Airbus service manuals of the following acronyms: OTL and SLL?

OTL is "Operating Time Limit" for various items, such as T/R Driveshaft Bearings
Etc. These limits usually have an allowable margin for operational convenience.
The time limit may be in Hours or Calendar time.

SLL is "Service Life Limit" and is the ultimate allowable life of an item and has no
Margin allowed.

Some may find this table useful, but I hasten to add that I haven't checked it for accuracy!

Cheers RH. Some have explained to me that OTL's are recommended limits and not considered mandatory, but I don't think this is correct.

The warning unit output simply was too high. Reducing the output level via the poti helped to eliminate the problem.

Quick Question about Engine Fires in the AS350B2

May be a simple mistake or oversight, in the flight manual it states that when experiencing a fire in flight to switch off the booster pumps, while the Eurosafety App that I have for my phone doesn't include this step. Is this a mistake in the app or has there been some revision in the manual or elsewhere that I can't find?

EDIT: Never mind. I contacted Eurosafety and it was told that it was a mistake in the app.

In June 2011, Vector Aerospace was acquired by Eurocopter Holdings, the holding entity of the Eurocopter Group and a subsidiary of global aerospace and defense giant EADS.
Somewhat circular argument?

EASA AS350 Type Rating

Does any of you fine people know if it is possible to get an EASA AS350 type rating outside of Europe? Somewhere were it might be a little cheaper than in the EU?

Why the corrected weight chart and what is the catch behind it?
