Chopper Chat Thread

Postby NorStar2K » January 27th, 2010, 10:02 am

For all the Rotary Aviators, Enthusiasts and Ground Doves amongst us.

Post your pix, questions, comments, observations, etc here.

Please avoid questions or comments that push the envelope towards disseminating 'controlled' or 'classified' MNS, SAUTT AirOps and other related information.

You certainly don't want 'strange lights' over your house at two in the morning followed by loud knocking on your front door, do you?! 8-)

PLEASE DO NOT POST ANY PIX WHERE THE SOURCE AND PERMISSION TO POST CANNOT BE DETERMINED, TO AVOID CONFIDENTIALITY ISSUES.

Most of these pix are from locations where the pix are already posted on sites with photographer/website credit and copyright.

pablo_tt, 9Y-TGX AND 9Y-TGW, the former Air Division's (MNS 1982) first birds, are down and may never fly again.

NHSL's plan is to operate a modern fleet of S-76Cs only. Those two S-76As are going to be very expensive to upgrade to modern avionics, Arriel 2S2 Turboshaft Powerplants, etc.

NiceFuzz Master. We need a service like that here. Time to primary medical care is too long.
