Over-Talk Posted November 21, 2011 Report Share Posted November 21, 2011 I also heard that the 412 has a new WAT chart, so hopefully the 212 will get a new one too. In the mean-time......remember that the WAT chart only applies to take-off, landing and in-ground-effect maneuvers.....therefore a HOGE mission such as lifting a seismic drill on a long-line can use the new performance numbers. Yep, that's right....now the customer will load another 400 lbs of crap onto the drill (or WE will stupidly put on another 400 lbs of fuel)....and we will still be flying around at 100%(ish) TQ, with the personal-pucker-factor still at 10 !! Did WE gain anything here?? Not unless WE keep that extra power margin in our back pockets to use when WE need it. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
