Heli500 Posted July 15, 2009 Report Share Posted July 15, 2009 Wow, I find that incredible. We teach AME student apprentices about collective bounce and min friction. Why is this incredible. Not all aircraft react like a bells. Not all aircraft require any minimal friction on the colective for flight. Last bell I put a wench to was at SAIT about a decade ago. I guesse that was the last time I had ever heard of colective bounce. There is a reason that we type endorse AME's before we give them ACA. I asked 2 pilots to explain (not bell pilots) and they could not either. I did not know if it was just a phanominum that occured in this type of rotor head. There was a post about how pilots would ask there engineer to reduce the friction on the machine they were flying. Maybe now someone will read this and know that maybee thats not the best idea. Im glad you still remember every detail about every aircraft type and system you learned about in school. I guesse you're a better engineer than I. If I ever have any questions about Mag timming i will drop you a line. I think that this thread has been very informative and personally I learned from it. I sure the guys that put out this TSB report would be happy to know that there were people from all over the industry discussing it in an open form and educating people in hopes to one day prevent an accident like this from happining. I think the whole point of the reports being published is so we all can get closure and learn from others mistakes. Oh ya pretty sure we're also taught to use the Maintenance Manual when perfoming maintenance on an aircraft. I pretty much stick with that and its worked for the past decade. I guesse I did remember something. Cheers Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
