oil pressure Posted March 26, 2013 Report Share Posted March 26, 2013 The ASRD has published their 2013 Casual Charter Rates (Revised March 25, 2013) There are 3 variances of the Bell 212 listed... Bell 212 Bell 212HP c/w Tail Rotor Mod Bell 212E c/w BLR Strake and Fast Fin What is a Bell 212E and why would it have the same rate as a 212HP? As far as I understood, the 212HP with the applicable T/R was the only 212 variance that had approved published increased WAT performance. The HP without the applicable T/R only has different HOGE and HIGE charts. I did see an operators website that showed higher WAT numbers for the 212E (whatever that is) than the 212HP. I guess it is a positive that the ASRD is willing to pay for the safety margin gains of having the Strake/Fast Fin combination performance. The 212HP with the applicable T/R and Strake/Fast Fin should be the highest paid 212 out there then. Given that thought process, the Bell 205++ with the Strake/Fast Fin combination should yeild a higher rate that the 205++ without? Got me baffled....anyone know more about this 212E? 9 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
