  1. Maybe aim for an LH250 because they're a lot easier to source second hand and also easier to sell down the track. Just remove the outer visor and cover and it's basically an LH050 with the option of going back to dual visor should you want to. Merit occasionally have second hand helmets in stock too so might be worth getting in touch with Rob Hamers and seeing what he's got. Super friendly guy that has amazing after-sales support. I got a killer deal on an LH250 with no outer visor.
  2. Something to add to this, if you have any thoughts of working in the US on forestry down there at any point, the DOI are in the process of re-doing their list of approved helmets. Merit apparel are going through the testing process (at their own expense) to make sure the Gallet helmets will be all approved, but I'd be surprised if Northwall or any of the smaller companies will go to the same expense. It's essentially a big fight with Gentex, who currently supply all the helmets for the military. They've been trash talking everyone else and moving the goalposts regarding certification. Just something to throw into the mix regarding your future purchase. I use a LH250 with the outer visor removed, so essentially a 050. It's great. EDIT: Typo
  3. There's a few Canadian ships down there running PW engines. I'm sure they're benefiting too. Fire agencies are months behind on paying most operators, that's alot of debt to carry. Good on them for helping out.
  4. Just weighed my LH250 with the outer visor removed, Soother liner, Soother ear cups, CEP, and a bail out cord. And of course a couple of stickers to make it go faster. 1150 grams.
  5. Pulling this one back from the dead. Looking into a new helmet, anyone had any experience with these guys? I've heard Northwall is a nice helmet, just wondering if having a Canadian contact is making life easier.
  6. Tried the open bypass, no joy. Thinking we might have to just rock the paper charts.
  7. Hi all, Working for a company now that runs a b3 fleet with AFS filters. Having issues getting them to pass the inbuilt VEMD power checks, but I'm assured that it's just a calculation error in the software and that they're making power. Guys saying just take it up to 8-10k and it'll pass but that's all well and good on a clear day, no joy when it's garbage out. Client has a requirement for aircraft to pass a power check weekly/25 hrs, so wondering if anyone has had similar experiences and has any input? Edit: just to clarify, fleet is 2B1 and 2D engines.
  8. Going to propose this to the boss. Anyone else had any experience with these? Worth the upgrade? Not a huge fan of the lack of shoulder harness when I'm out the bubble, but it's the only way currently.
  9. Looking at a new helmet and wondering if anyone has put a Lightspeed Zulu headset into an LH050. I'm currently running this setup in my LH350 but looking for a change. I've been told the ear cups won't fit in the 050 by one of the companies that sells them and just want to be sure. I just pulled the headband off the headset and velcro'd in the ear cups. Works a treat in the 350.

  11. I've heard mixed reviews on the EVO. Anyone had any experience with Bonehead? Specifically their Aries model helmet? I'm thinking about getting one but haven't seen one in the flesh. http://www.boneheadcomposites.com/m8/216--aries-flight-helmet-with-comms-and-integrated-visor.html
