My instructor doesn't know what these are

They're positioned just beside the battery on the airframe.

Any ideas anyone?

And what helicopter are we looking at?

Rolling Eyes

PS: Not a good thing if your instructor doesn't know. I would think that he would be finding out for you by now.

Your homework! Who is paying who?
There is no way of knowing exactly unless you ask an AP. I doubt they will be identified in the POH.

One thing they are not are fuel pumps since we know the R22 is a gravity feed system. Wonder if they are electrical vacuum pumps?

I am curious myself since I don't fly the R-22, but like to learn about them when I can.

Sorry, I should have added that you will probably only see them in the UK on G- reg'd R22/44's. It's a UK certification requirement. I believe the kit consisting of two additional spot light mounted on the rear cross tube of the landing gear. Originally designed to replace the parachute flares... which were better! The flares were very sensitive to electrical current and on occassions were known to inadvertantly fire, in-flight and on the ground, which caused some injuries.

Hope this is of use. Where are you learning to fly Chickhawk?

Fly Happy (and tell you instructor you got the awnser from Google).

...and also...

If you follow the wiring you will see that they go to each light, from the relay in the other direction they go to the bus bar (requires panels to be removed) under the circuit breaker panel in front of the left seat, they then each have a circuit breaker.

I'm at Booker aka High Wycombe aka Marlow.

There are indeed two emergency lamps right near there which are quite powerful but will also completely drain the battery if left on for more than oooh I don't know... half a second!
