    Robinson R44 - Ultimate Pilot's Operating Handbook

    Wow, we have a population explosion. I'm just south of Hillsboro (with a Hillsboro address.) I took a Helicopter lesson at Hillsboro Aviation for my birthday last year. Wish I had the funds to go all the way. Hey, maybe we can find a group who could co-own an R44 together.

    Highly Improved RAF 2000 For Sale

    New Owner Revealed New Owner Revealed Got the word: Tom Dunno from Van Wert, OH gave me the ok to let people know he now owns N73GK. He mentioned he was going to have Duane Hunn come look it over. After a 2200 mile ride on a car carrier, a good going over can't hurt.

    Highly Improved RAF 2000 For Sale

    Ah, you are fishing for hints. I guess once the new registration gets posted through the FAA, you can find out who has it. But until then, or until the new owner announces, :noidea:

    Yup, the gross weight was listed just over 1500 lbs. Who needs a bank account as long as you got some plastic.

    death spiral, behind the powercurve, chasing cows and gators

    Ya done good Ron by hearing the concerns and saying you'll do better next time. Great video. Since everyone is picking on you, can I have a shot? (Seriously, I can't pick on you, but your video brought something to mind.) The thing I was thinking about is where it shows you pre-rotating with...

    Beautiful Saturday in the PNW for flying

    When I first moved here from Wisconsin (Wes-con-sin) a million years ago, I pronounced it Ora-gon. I was quickly corrected. I also called the Willamette River (Will-am'-it) river as Will-a-mett'. I heard about that too.

    Beautiful Saturday in the PNW for flying

    Such is life... easy come... not quite as easy going... ;) I think you should buy my machine Jon... You need more toys, right? It would also be a good test-platform for all your RAF customers too. The price just came down... and for you, I would make such a deal.
