  1. The picture does show a tail rotor missing from the aircraft, however... I just thought it to be unlikely that the T/R would be the cause of an incident in an aircraft of proven design. And the odds go down even further when said aircraft is a test bed for a newly designed main rotor hub and blades. I worked maintenance on ST's for a number of years, and 214B's before that, and never did a T/R threaten to depart. Loosen up feathering bearings, play in pc links, brinnell trunnions .. yes, but actually get up and leave the aircraft? No. My theory is Bell is pinning this on the T/R to avoid nega
  2. This is CHC's old 214ST, sn 28199 bought by Bell to test the M/R hub and Blade design slated for use on the new 525 Relentless. Wonder what Bell has up their sleeve for damage control on this one? The article below says 'T/R Failure'. Somehow I'm not in full belief of that statement.

  3. Dan buddy... How ya doin?? It's Tyler Caldwell. I agree with Blake here. Avtech is where I went too, good operation there. However the O&P was brutal but do-able.
  4. Hey all, Starting a new job wrenching on 412's shortly here. Have all the necessary time in, but not the TC approved course for ACA. Is any company holding an in house 212 or 412 course in the near future that I could jump in on, and hopefully cheaper than BHT's $8500 asking price? Thanks in advance Tyler
  5. Excellent Discussion. This report is on the 214B's fuel system, which to my knowledge is identical to a 205's. Really eye opening info on trusting your low fuel light over the Qty Indicator. http://www.bst.gc.ca/eng/rapports-reports/...75/a99p0075.pdf Cheers
  6. I second that NLC was definetely a cheaper alternative to the other schools, and it really readied me for what the heli world is really like.
