Hey Guys i was wondering what is the safest helicopter from what i have read its between the robinson r44 and the bell jet ranger 206 b if thats true out of those 2 which is the safest one!
thanks happy flying
What do you mean by safe ? Those least likely to crash or those that if they do you are most likely to survive ?
206 is reputed o be the least likely to kill you if you divide hours by deaths. If you do crash then a 500 is the most crash survivable machine. 844 got shot down in vietnam, no pilot died from crashing !
Just come back from seeing the cabri G2 what a machine, seat is good for plus 35 g up and down an 19g laterally !
Remember all facts and figures can be manupilated. Eg 206 and 500 have been to war, R44 hasnt so that will skew the figures badly in favour of the R44
