Jetrangers For Sale

Recommended Posts

I've flown both IIs and IIIs here in LA, and I find tail rotor authority to be definitely much better in the III, especially at altitude... But hey, that's just me...  :D


Ever land one at 11,000 feet in the summer? That will really show the difference in the performance.


I rarely saw a Jetbox with less than 15,000 hours on it in my former job on the light stuff. It was really rare to see a BIII in our fleet, I have most of my JetRanger time on 206A models that were converted to 206B models. Very light until the BC forest service started adding heavy requirements to them. Also had a lot of weight added to a converted A model when an oil leak on the deck soaked into the honeycomb fuselage during a summer. It was mind boggling how the lightest 206 airframe in the fleet suddenly became one of the heaviest.


The 206BIII has a much heavier airframe, partly to support the bigger tailrotor. I haven't flown a light helicopter in quite a while but will again someday. 407Driver is the best man to help me out here he has countless hours driving them into the high country.
