Welcome Aboard - So wots the goss on the 53X, are they going to go ahead with it.

I was at Pax River last year doing a photo shoot with the AH1Z and UH1Y and was given a brief about the X model 53 with its new glass cockpit, new trans, composite blades etc and sounds like it will be a whole new machine.

The only downside is the head of some unit was quoted the other day as saying he thinks it doesnt need the new glass cockpit. What do you think.

Cheers

Talk to you soon,

Yeah, I have a picture of our tail rotor hub on a stand, and it's about the size of a h-60 main rotor head.

The 58 is a Bell 206L isn't it? Still a single engine?

Hey Dragoon, I spent my enlisted days at Fort Riley and flew a couple of times in a UH-1 over to Leavenworth. I don't remember seeing that much water that would make a difference. Or did you used to be stationed in Hawaii and have to fly to the Big Island all the time like I do in my 60? I did the single engine over water thing in Egypt, not fun at all.

Fly safe,
Craig

"The 58 is a Bell 206L isn't it? Still a single engine? "

The OH-58 (A,C,C+) are the B206B airframe, not the B206L. The OH-58D is on the B407 Airframe or at least as close as they come
