Which is even more ironic when you consider the Accessory Drive for the 139 (when installed) is on the #2 side! They never got around to installing the actuator to disengage the engine though. All...

Good grief. It's like you guys have never come across a blade strike before.

Mechanically, the 139 is the simplest machine I've ever worked on. Electrically, people are scared of it. And for no real reason. It is DC only. No AC crap to try and find issues with.

As a former 412 mechanic, I can say there is no such thing as minimal maintenance on those pigs. 212 was much better and I'd actually rather take a 139 into the bush than a 412. Far less day to day...

And don't forget the BK117-850D2, which says D2 but isn't an EC145. It is actually a B2 with upgraded engines.

Why didn't Airwork just call it the 850B2 instead????
