After a long year of TR Shaft Failure and getting it repaired and getting insurance finally 9023Z flies. My flight instructor and I flew it 2 Hours last Friday and 2.5 Hours today. I got to solo today and should fly it Friday again, and if the weather is good I will bring it to its home base. (66G). Which is Frankenmuth Michigan. I hope to get my Helicopter Rating finished this fall. It has been a real struggle, but just might be well worth it. My flight instructor's son is a Bell 407 pilot and he flew it last week and said what a nice ship to fly. We flew at gross weight with full fuel and density altitude of 2400 ft today, and it preformed pretty good.
