Hi Bleu,

Here is a very intriguing thread about just that!

ZS-RUT was rebuilt by tanglefoot and co. and he really did a good job of keeping us desk jockeys informed - loved it. Hopefully you will do the same.

Skill and luck - always have enough of both

The guys from Acher Aviation is currently rebuilding the R44 for JNC Helicopters down here in Durban - maybe they can also answer some questions...

Craig.
There is a “12-yr inspection”, and a “2200 HR overhaul”. They are not the same, and the cost is very different.

I believe Tanglefoot did the 2200 overhaul, commonly referred to as “rebuild”. Arguably, the term “12-yr rebuild” is therefore a misnomer.

There should be a number of people on this Forum who know how this works. What do you want to know?

Speak to Reyno or Vaughn at Aircraft Incorporated @ FAKR ( Jack Taylor ), they are a Robbie overhaul and rebuild center and do so good work!!

PM me for their details
