    I think I recall a blurb in a paper early this summer saying the owner of the heli Sam flew just lost BC court of appeal to avoid extradition to the US for charges related to that incident 8yrs ago.

    Greg’s an unreal pilot. He can do things with that R-44 that are tough to believe.

    Never really consider a piston driven heli.... operating costs are lower and so is overhaul. the R44 is atleast as fast as a 206.... hmm.

    But three seats... hmm... I mean, I probably only have 2 real friends. the others are just around for the free vert.

    Sounds like you need either an R22 or a CH47. Could go either way.

    I feel like you're not taking this seriously.

    But the Chinook would be sweet for the BBI.... think we could fit a fuel cash and the CH47 in Lot 4?

    Then why ask? Just get the B3 and be done with it. A 206L, R66, R44, or anything will not meet your needs.

    I've loaded and unloaded slings for a local pilot who had been pilot of the year and his skills were awesume

    he would put a load of lumber down right there and I would realize the load was too heavy for him to hover and cuz he had burned fuel on the way up the 206 had been even heavier when he took off

    he was always taking off or landing loads that he couldn't hover with
