Out spraying one morning with James Costa. This was the night before when they were giving the Hiller and 47 a wash down. Beautiful light in Southern California.

This was a fun shoot, out with Helifor crews near Hope, BC. They had the Vertol working there as well as some 500s. Shame the whole company was shut down as awesome group of people.

Nigel - When I was chatting with Simon he said he was easily doing 700kg plus the bucket which is about another 100kg so had 800kg on the hook and was in the bottom of the yellow, he was doing that day in day out with the topdressing. He said he is loving the machine.

You can't as the fertiliser in the bucket is automatically weighed as it goes from the truck into the loading bucket and all the tell tales in the machine would show if anything is being overloaded, besides thats not in Simons nature - one of the true professionals here in the kiwi aviation industry. There are a few small things that need to be ironed out but overall its a great little machine. He is getting the high skid gear later this year when its certified. Will make a big difference for ag ops out in the field.
