Hueylover Posted March 2, 2004 Report Share Posted March 2, 2004 So what's the opinion of all out there as to the best helicopter for training? I have a young nephew looking to train and want some opinions. Seems he wants an opinion other than mine We have been looking at various websites and it seems to me that there is a choice of three: R22, 300, Bell 47. My thoughts are the 47 is too old. One companies website states it is still in use commercially. Is that TRUE?? I remember one that did a job in the arctic but that was a long time ago. The R22 to me is an unsafe a/c. I've read the NTSB reports and understand that they even wanted to pull the type certificate at one time. Then there's the 300. I've read the US military trained over 15 MILLION hours with just one fatality! Seems to be the best choice. Rebuttal?? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
