Hughesy Posted August 13, 2007 Report Share Posted August 13, 2007 The reason why I chose to hot refuel was as I was working out of the airfield that day doing a sampling project, and to be honest I couldnt be bothered hanging around all day waiting for them to refuel me. And for the sake of shutting down for 5 mins to refuel the 500, didnt really seem worth it. And as we had drums there I decided that was the best option. I took all the precautions with frictions and refueling techniques , also keep an eye out for any kids running around, so i couldnt see the issue. I do it all the time back home in NZ where it is legal to do in turbines. I fully agree with Skids Up, no need to leave the heli if done correctly. PLus you can get the geo's to push over the drum to the heli! ;-) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
