  1. I have recently encountered a glitch with my Gallet Helmet, when used in the new 407GXi, the volume is not high enough to be readable, with both the com box and the radios at max volume. Anybody knows of an 'inline' amplifier I could buy?
  2. I have had a Gallet for over 10 years now and since day 1, I have found it to be really noisy. I remember the first time I flew with it, I couldn't believe how much noise was getting in my ears. I tried switching with the regular David Clark headset dangling on the co-jo side and thought wow, this is better. Anyhow, I ended up buying molded plugs from customs protectear and it was all good from there. Dont get me wrong, I still like the helmet, the comfort, the visors, and the fact that it is not heavy and very compact to sling in the astar. Fact is, I had not heard anybody complain abou
  3. Its on a BH12. It turned out to be tied in satphone handset causing interference......god knows how...but once disconnected, problem disapeared..........Amazonian black magic!!!!
  4. Thanks a lot for the answers. It does sounds like grounding/ shielding issues. I will fire an email to Latitude and see. It is not an antenna proximity problem since it is also affecting a handheld even at 2mtrs from the machine. This AM I had a little Motorolla hanheld radio, I put it on the "pedestal" close to the com box and it went tschhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh non stop. It would do that if held close to the pedestal or dash. When the skytrack ckt breaker was pulled, the problem went away. Superwrench, you are saying that putting shields on the PWR cables helped the problem??
  5. Anybody has ever had interference problem in a FM radio caused by the Skytrack system?? I put the battery on, turn on the FM and TCHSSS TSCHH she goes, I pull the skytrack breaker and peace comes back. It also does the exact same thing on a handheld radio even a few meters from the aircraft. Any ideas???
  6. Indeed, they are all tie wrapped together....... Thanks for the info, we will investigate further.
  7. Hi, I have been getting the same over and over problem on ASTARS and would really like to fix it once and for all. This has happened lots, through the years on different machines(only Astars) from different companies . When keying the FM radio(TFM550) from the pilot cyclic, the VHF radio squelch from either COM 1 or COM2 seems to activate which creates a really annoying noise in the pax headset. The same thing is true when the front PAX activates the PTT switch on the dash, the noise is heard in the pilots headset. So when flying fires, the firefighter sitting in the front PA
  8. Who ended up getting the Afghanistan Mediums and Heavy contract????
  9. Hi! I am looking for the Bell 205 Flight Manual supplement for the -17 engine and the 212 M/R Blades. Thanks!
  10. Hi! I was recently made aware that a pilot flying an Astar B2/D2 for the same company, had an overspeed on final approach which ended up in a flame out... and autorotation. I heard of at least one similar occurance... When I tested the overspeed limiter on the machine I flew a few months ago, following the procedure, the engine flamed out instead of just spinning down to prevent overspeeding. My understanding of this system is that when an overspeed is detected, a signal is sent to decrease the amount of fuel sent to the engine to prevent such an overspeed......but no flame out
  11. Hi, I am doing a check on a 206B and I was wondering if anyone would have a soft copy of any type of systems description for the aircraft. Thanks a lot!
  12. Hey I just spent some time trying to verify that and didnt find where to subscribe..... Where do you go exactly, post the link please.....I'm too dumb to find it by myself it seems... Thanks!!
