old dog Posted November 15, 2008 Report Share Posted November 15, 2008 Reading an old thread on page 50 or so i came upon a statement a pilot made that he would never fly in a machine that didn't have a standard set up with reference to the cyclic switches/buttons. We did have one 206 with a 205 grip (i was told) but it was changed out. Now all the machines have metal boxes on the side of the cyclic and extensions on the collective to accommodate switches. When i worked as and apprentice engineer i got to rebuild a Bambi bucket that had been inadvertently dropped on a fire so i can appreciate the need for standardisation. My question is: What is considered "standard configuration"? Any comments are appreciated, thank you. L3driver. It is whatever your current Chief Pilot says it is! :shock: This subject drives me nuts - and dumb wiring/switch location has killed more than a few pilots.
