Flight Manual!

Recommended Posts

You know you can get a current manual - FREE - directly from Bell by siging up for their technical publications site? Bell actually wants flight and maintenance crews to have the latest technical publications!

Which is easy enough to provide by conducting a search of the TC Civil Aircraft Register if it's for a type/model you don't have access to (ie you don't work there, you can't figure it out and/or you don't want to ask). Sometimes you have to get a little creative if the registered owner is different from legal owner. Alternatively you can just send Bell an email and ask, presenting a valid reason. I have access to the entire fleet and I find the maintenance information a huge benefit in helping me understand systems or operating procedures, even though I'm a pilot, not an engineer.

 

I wish other manufacturers showed the same wisdom. Charging for technical publications may lead to some level of profit, however it discourages those with the interest and without the means, to seek out outdated free information. And many operators will only pay for the bare minimum, and only if they absolutely have to. Many private operators/owners don't want to pay at all.

 

Bell's policy actually encouages a higher level of technical knowledge of their equipment - from ground and flight crews, right up to management and owners. Private or commercial - encourages safety and reliability. A win for everyone.
