  1. I was wondering if anyone know any supplier of the LH250 intergrated with the new Bose A20 ANR/bluetooth. Here in Europe they actually build this configuration, but as always Europe = $$$$. I find it strange that I can't seem to find it awith this setup in N.America. It's really nice to have the gallet with music and cell phone connected. (My coworker has one)
  2. Hi, For those used to fly in the pure white mountains with the famous flat light. Has anyone any experience using color boxes designed only to put a colored layer on the snow for reference? Someone said they use this in certain areas, both for Heliskiing and SAR when landing in areas with risk of whiteout. Any experience and ideas appreciated for this application.
  3. Sorry, I didnt't specify all. Aicraft: AS350 Radios installed: Tecnosonic VHF/FM AIRBORNE TRANSCEIVER + ordinary VHF Ground crew: They have portable FM radios that is on frequency with the aicrafts FM radio. They also have ordinary industry helmets with ICS that connects to the FM handheld through a cord with a blue unit that you need to press for transmit. This solution works, but... We have tried to connect the Gallet helmet cord directly into this blue unit (NATO plug) but it doesnt work. So as of today when a crew member exists the aircraft, he needs to take he's gallet
  4. Hey, Hoping that someone has the solution for what I am describing bellow. We are a onshore utility company flying mainly AS350 aicraft. Our pilots and ground crew has aviation helmets when flying. When starting up, landing somewhere, or just having ground crew on the ground while performing external load, the groundcrew has no way of communicating with the pilot except when he takes he's aviation helmet off and uses a FM radio handheld. We have some really thin helmets(industry) that can connect to the FM handheld. So atleast they have something on the head. We want to f
  5. First off. Cant seem to find the forum search function on the site. We have a fleet of AS 350 B3's, with popout floats and cargo swing. Easy way of moving these aircrafts out there? Any solutions appreciated. (Except platforms) Morten
  6. Company looking for a "portable hangar" solution for AS350. Not ment to be moved every week, but more like every 6-12 months. Any suggestions, recommendations?
  7. Thx for all the answers... Does anyone have the specs for the http://www.chinookaviation.com solution? (preferably in metric)
  8. Our company is ordering a brand new B3 from Eurocopter. And since Eurocopter only deliveres the XL version of the floor window. I was hoping on some feedback on the differences.. Are they noticable, is it worth getting a new B3 and than put in either a DART or Chinook design?
  9. Hi, Does anyone have the data on the Eurocopter XL installation vs DART installation floor window? I got pictures of the DART installation, would like on the XL Eurocopter. Opinions?
  10. I said R44, but information for any type of helicopter would be of interest!
  11. Does anyone have any experience with banner towing from R44? Would be interesting to get some information about the procedure, weight, speed etc. Any approved SOP's out there? Its for a company in Europe. Thx.
  12. Thx Paul. I can't confirm it, but the guy next to me is pretty sure he heard the "gong" right after it happened.. No limits was stored as exceeded.
