    Which Machine To Buy?

    Thanks for all the replies and PM's. The general consensus is Longranger from most peeps. Now to narrow it down. Thanks
  7. If you had a spare million to burn, which machine would you buy? Jetranger, EC120, A Star, R66. Personal use, +- 200 hours a year.

    Alpine 212 Crash At Nakusp

    TSB#A16P0023: An Alpine Helicopters Bell 212 helicopter (N215KA), was carrying out remote heli-skiing operations about 15 nautical miles east of Nakusp, BC (CAQ5). The pilot was attempting to land on a marked landing site on a ski run called "Nicole". This was the second landing of the day at this location; the helicopter was carrying 10 guests, 2 guides and the pilot. The first approach was abandoned due to skiers from a previous group waiting on the landing site. On the second approach, visibility was reduced in fog and blown-up snow. The pilot still had the site markers and skiers in sight when it became apparent that the helicopter could not come to a complete hover and touch down would result in a run-on landing. The helicopter touched down on the pilot's right-hand side due to skiers near the left side of the site. With some forward momentum and sloping ground to the right, the helicopter’s right-side skid dug into the soft snow, resulting in the helicopter rolling over to the right side. The pilot pulled both fire T-handles and exited the aircraft while the guides were assisting guests out from the back seats. There were no injuries or fire.

    How Short Is Too Short?

    P.B. Keep in mind that some seats are designed to crush to absorb impact.
