    Bell 407 Flight Manual

    If you are working for a company that operate Bell 407's, you can try to register at: https://mybell.com/bell/en/USD/login The ability to carry 5250lbs is covered in a supplement (FMS-28). Latest is Rev 1. The latest FM is Revision 15 (up to S/N 54299).
  3. There will be a media briefing tomorrow. http://www.bst-tsb.gc.ca/eng/medias-media/avis-advisory/aviation/2017/a17o0264-20171220.asp Out of respect to the deceased and their families, let's keep this civil. The families are devastated and any mud slinging will not bring these 4 people back. Fly safe.

    UTM ForeFlight iPhone/iPad App

    Nice job GF. Already downloaded. Don't need it often in my current flying environment, but nice to have.
  5. You could check out the M/R blades from Van Horn: http://vanhornaviation.com/2016/10/31/vha-receives-transport-canada-stc-for-206b-main-rotor-blades/
  6. Hi Bif, The SB you need is 28-009, which basically tells you to change the start pump to allow you to operate to -15C without fuel additive. I priced the kit in 2015 and you're looking at approximately $15,000 to accomplish this SB. You should be able to download SB from TIPI. Sven
  7. Al will be missed. I really enjoyed working with him in Slave Lake. RIP

    Camera Ball

    In Ontario, you could contact Chris Chanda at http://www.aerialcameraops.com . I have worked with Chris in the past and find him very professional. Not sure if he has equipment, but he could possibly point you in the right direction. We did get some equipment from here: http://www.whites.com , but I'm not sure if the have the entire STC mount or just the Gimbal.

    Niagara's New Rides

    The new H130 (EC130T2) has a certified crashworthy fuel tank. Current EC130B4 cargo hook installation could compromise that in the event of a hard (belly) landing. A new cargo hook system is rumoured to be in development to address that issue.

    Niagara's New Rides

    They are nice looking. Ruedi sold the business to HTSC about 3.5 years ago. I think they had some Enstroms before Ruedi bought the company, but under Ruedi's ownership it's been Bell Helicopter exclusively.

    Ipad Cigarette Usb Adapter

    Check Aircraftspruce.ca under the iPad section. Ensure that it's capable of outputting at least 2.1A for iPad charging.

    Weight & Balance App

    If you guys have a spread sheet program, you could search for W&B excel files that "Saifan Pilot" has posted.
  13. For iPad users on a budget, FltPlan Go works well on the iOS as well. I personally find it slightly less user friendly than Foreflight, but for a free product it's not bad.

    Tab Tools Wanted

    Hi Dieselrider, As an alternative you could look at these after market tools. I have no connection with those companies: -http://westernhelicraft.com/tools/as350.asp -http://www.dartaerospace.com/downloads/2014-catalogs (they carry tab tools made by Red Barn) Good luck.

    Android Apps?

    HeliJim, It shows as 17.99 when I look it up. Where did you see it listed for $99? Used it successfully for many years.
