  1. Add to that the fact that you aren't allowed to use any images in the beginning... sigh (because they are urls!)
  2. Roger that, I'm just curious about the control theory aspects and how it was all achieved (with steam essentially)
  3. No it didn’t. and the lag of waiting for each post to be approved by moderators seems a bit like a worn out governor 😉
  4. agreed, but that’s not quite my question. Suppose the linkage were gone. If Im at 100% N2 and raise collective there will be transient droop as the rotors create more drag, N2 governor will kick in and add fuel. Once the N2 governor is back on speed the RPM will be less than 100. This difference in RPM is the static droop. So my question: does the Bendix governor exhibit static droop, if so, how is it achieved? I believe the collective droop compensation will address both transient and static droop. In the first case, the lag is reduced by immediately allowing greater fuel flow when the colle
  5. I found the answer. It does not require a CFII. https://www.faa.gov/about/office_org/headquarters_offices/agc/practice_areas/regulations/interpretations/data/interps/2016/jablecki - (2016) legal interpretation.pdf
  6. I’m a relatively new pilot transitioning to turbines and training in the 206. While studying the systems, I had a look at the Bendix manual: http://www.justhelicopters.com/Portals/5/SkolaC28 Bendix Book.pdf Page 17 decribes the collective linkage to the governor as providing “compensation for droop characteristics”. I take this to mean static droop which I understand to be an intentional speed reduction with load to prevent overshoot. If I have this right so far, how is static droop created in this system? The internals of the governor look extremely simple - just a set of flyweight
  7. Can this training be provided by any CFI? Or do you need a CFII? (i) Five hours on the control and maneuvering of a helicopter solely by reference to instruments using a view-limiting device including attitude instrument flying, partial panel skills, recovery from unusual flight attitudes, and intercepting and tracking navigational systems. This aeronautical experience may be performed in an aircraft, flight simulator, flight training device, or an aviation training device;
