          • ropteron

            Yes, a C model, flew them for 9 years on tuna out of Guam and Am Samoa.
            An ‘old AS350 B2′ you say, well lol in 2012 I did my rating (2.4 hours= $5800), kept saying to the instructor ‘I don’t feel as if I should be here, it’s all too flash and too fast’.

          • GregM

            Nice machine and nice landing pad, by all accounts it looks like you might have got further in this game than I did/have.

          • GregM

        • WABloke
