Pilots hate this one weird trick
The first Aťrospatiale/Eurocopter AS350 was a B and C model

Aviation equivalent of hotels who skip the room number '666' or the 13th floor

Great, but like the warranty on anything you buy....how easy will it for owners to "claim" on this warranty? If you are in <foreign country> and your HX50 tail cone splits, how long are you going to have to wait for it to be fixed?

Hill could say 10 years and 10,000 hour warranty, they could even say lifetime warranty.

Like everything on this project, LOTS of promises and LOTS of unknowns.

I have also noticed that Hill delete any 'questioning' comments from all their youtube videos, so all the comments look positive.

And Hill checks this forum at 7am everyday

Sorry to ask here but it's the place I'm most likely to spot a reply, how does one like a post?
I'm using Chrome, I've scoured the screen and I cannot see a like button.
Thanks

TBH, I am interested to see what will be shown.
One thing I am hopping for is test bed engine run.

Saw a picture of the Metallic Green Duxford example in the paint shop on the 20th November.
Just a carbon painted shell on jacks.
Thought there looked quite a bit to do in 6 weeks.
Be interesting to see what is exhibited.
