HBG Posted July 9, 2005 Report Share Posted July 9, 2005 In the past its been a bit of a gray area, but recently in the past year our company was granted permission to fly passengers from the left seat. I believe VIH also has it written in there ops manual. Personally spending 99% of the time in the left seat moving drills and then having to jump over to the right side to move a full crew of 14 drillers in or out of a tight pad is crazy. I would rather stay in the left seat than have a 200+lbs driller trying to maneuver over the left hand collective control while you are holding power on a crappy pad. Besides one usually picks the co-coordinator to ride up front for he is usually the most competent one. Just my opinion. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
