As 350B3E

Recommended Posts

Just wondering if anybody has any info on the 350B3e, it sounds pretty good but I haven't seen any stats on it yet?

 

 

I heard it's great for skiing!

 

Sorry, couldn't help it....

e = enhanced

 

other than the added max take off power increased to 30 minutes, it doesn't sound like it's going to be much different other than Dual VEMD's and some tail rotor improvements.

When they are refering to dual screen VEMD'S in the brochure are you sure they are not refering the the standard configuration in all B3's and some B2's with 1 VEMD having 2 screens (lanes) incorperated into 1 VEMD.

 

With the TBO increase on the Engine to 4000hrs from 3500hrs this will be more appealing to the operators.

could be true, that's how it was written in the press release I read.

I won't lose sleep over it, but it's duly noted that no matter what I say someones gonna pick it apart.

For those who aren't aware VEMD stands for Vehicle Engine Multifunctional Display. The only time you would ever see two VEMD's on the dash is when the aircraft has a two crew minimum requirement. If the aircraft gets certified as single pilot then there will only be one VEMD with an upper and lower screen. One of our twins has VEMD and and both engine parameters are displayed, aircraft limits on the top screen, and temp's/pressures/volumes on the bottom screen.

Does it still display FLI?

FLI is always displayed on the top screen after the start unless the top screen fails and then the FLI is displayed on the bottom screen.
