  1. I was just wondering if anyone has any experience with the Garmin GTR225 radio? Any reviews, good or bad?
  2. This is very interesting, we use RAD's and do the exact opposite. Get the track down to less that 4mm, then look at balance.
  3. Many moons since I worked on Astars, but if I remember correctly... I was using a Vibrex 2000, set on Spectrum Anaylis. Mount the accelerometers on the seat rails as per the manual. When you hit the start button to read the Spectrum, tap the hammers. You want to see a peak at the same vibration level as the 3per. If it is not there, adjust the hammer in or out. Hope this helps, and I didn't forget anything.
  4. No wet lines to the instruments on the 407
  5. Looks like I have some competition. Nice tools by the way.
  6. Are you using RAD's? Is so, try to get the track within 4mm within the 'initial' program. Toggle off tab and weight to get the adjustments and, not like the older systems, do all the adjustments. After you get the track within those figures add some weight. When you go to 'flight', try to just use tab and weight adjustments (yes, hub weight will have an affect at all flight regimes). We are starting to bypass the 35% torque setting, when we were using it, is seems that RAD's will sacrifice higher speed, or hover to get good readings at 35%. If you are not using RAD's on the 407, disregard
  7. Maybe try waterless hand cleaner on a rag, without the abrasive pumice (of course). Use it like you would use wax.
  8. "He said not only is the helicopter available for firefighting it can be used as a transport aircraft and with a 181 kilograms lifting capacity is ideal for heavy lift work". That 212 is a stump puller
  9. Thanks for clarifying Mmike, I see where the MASH referance cam from. I will now retire to the sidelines to watch what happens.
  10. "Comparison with duty to rescue Good Samaritan laws may be confused with the duty to rescue, as described above. U.S. and Canadian approaches to this issue differ. Under the common law, good Samaritan laws provide a defence against torts arising from the attempted rescue. Such laws do not constitute a duty to rescue, such as exists in some civil law countries,[25] and in the common law under certain circumstances. However, the duty to rescue where it exists may itself imply a shield from liability; for example, under the German law of "Unterlassene Hilfeleistung" (an offense according to pro
  11. Good to hear you found the snag. Your explanation of the snag is almost word for word the same as the guys here described.
  12. I am serious about the t/r servo. The guys here thought it was the pump too, similar symptoms you describe including turning off the hydraulics and it stopped. they changed the pump to no avail. When they checked the servo the pilot valve was chattering away. Servo changed, vib's gone.
  13. Check your tail rotor servo. We had one go here, bad servo valve. Caused vibs and noises from the hatrack area.
  14. Is ASB407-02-54 incorporated? This introduced the 2 scoops on the engine doors and air shields on the bearings, P/N 407-040-328-101. This is to improve cooling and the shields are to prevent grease being blown out of the bearings. I just change a set on one of our 407's, the bearings have been there since installation of this ASB, over 1000 hrs,

    Fig 18-20 and Table 18-9 of the 212 maint manual is what you are looking for.
  16. From Part V - Subpart 71 - Aircraft Maintenance Requirements (4) Except as provided in subsection (5), no person shall sign a maintenance release in respect of maintenance performed on a transport category aeroplane or a turbine-powered helicopter, unless the person (amended 2000/12/01; previous version) a. has successfully completed a course of maintenance training that has been approved by the Minister and that is applicable to the type of aircraft, engine or system on which the maintenance is performed, in accordance with Appendix M of Chapter 571 of the Airworthiness Man
  17. Maybe you should have taken a hard copy of CAR's and gave him a good smack with it. It states in black and white that with a M1 OR M2 you can sign a Maintenance Release for ANY turbine powered helicopter.
  18. Very inpressive, but mother natures version also eats black flies
  19. I bet Hello-Bird, if you open the yellow pages to Helicopters, it will show you
  20. Could you explain to another "simple" person, why her comment make her come across as a Quote"(edited by twinnie) Unquote...
  21. Our company has a 206L just to the west of that track. I informed my boss to tell the crew to keep their eyes and ears open. You never now. Fingers crossed for good news.
  22. You would have to put the "constructive input" qualifyer in there, wouldn't ya...
  23. I concur with Ray, time for your engineer to be with you. About the torque, have you been flying in smoke a lot, or doing drip torching? A few years back, a pilot, who had been torching and flying in the smoke being created, complained about the 100% flat pitch torque being higher than the norm. I looked at the blades and they were filthy, I mean very filthy, you could write your name in the soot. Gave the blade a really good wash and scrub with sponge and lots of soap and elbow grease and the torque came down. Just a thought, but if they are really dirty, just emagine what your compressor wil
  24. try a compressor wash first, and check all the airlines to the PC filter, fcu and governor.
