Not that I know of in SA. In the states they used the Honeywell engine in their AS350’s for easy maintenance purposes in their country. FX-II is just a Squirrel with a Honeywell engine that’s about it.

thats correct , but in order to be able to fly one need to do the differences training , like on the jetty and longer ranger . and there is no one to do it here .

....maybe a daft question but why do a rating if there is no equipment to utilize it on, or do you have an opertunity elsewhere?
