Looking for Hughes 269/Schweizer 300 for type rating + Hour building

Unread post by PilotBambi »

Hi all,

I'm currently searching for a Schweizer 300 helicopter in South Africa suitable for type rating training and hour building(approx 30 hours)
If anyone has information or leads on availability, I'd greatly appreciate your help.

Thank you,
Rosita

PAS at Wonderboom had one for a long time, check if they still do.

They are the Leonardo Agents, Precision Aviation.

Thanks for the info! unfortunately when I tried to search them, the website doesn't seem to exist anymore. & google maps states the company is permanently closed... :(

Speak to Frans at Trio Aviation.
Mobile number listed on the web site below.

https://www.trioavi.co.za/index.html

He does all the maintenance of the H269 fleet in South Africa,
so if anyone knows it will be him.

Good Luck.
