:) Certainly "dad".


The specs as published by Bell are can be achieved work under "ideal" conditions.


Put the machine under 50-55 kts, and things change.


Drop below translational lift or try an OGE hover and the aircraft performance "dramatically" changes.


As almost 100% or most of my/our flying is mountain, higher D.A. and,confined area operations on a line....... going OEI when in tight quarters close to the ground with bad winds make the published charts redundant, to say the least, especially working single pilot, in a multi engine aircraft from the left seat.
