haha, but its the passenger belt tail that catches you out. When it happened to me someone (skinny) was strapped in. Nice little gotcha.

I had a job last year that I initially thought was to retrieve a fixed wing, turns out it was a gyrocopter, so probably a fair bit easier to move than a plane. I did call a local legend pilot who had...

Thanks for the info, yes unfortunately the local AH people couldn't give us a definite answer. Thinking I might have to go direct to the source at Helibras and ask the question. Cheers for the help.

We happily hot refuel a 355 F model almost every day. No more risky than the 206 in my opinion. Biggest risk is flying off with the fuel caps sitting in the step. The good news is that when (not if)...
