Take a 269, as instructor you sit in the right seat ( providing it is not an old 269a or cbi) the student sits in the left hand seat which has the starting mechanism.


Our CBi was P1 LH.. I think this was where the question began.. with a solo, you can only be LH as you say - the starter button is only on that collective but with two up, there's seemingly no reason why RH shouldn't do the biz - after all, on the earliest lessons she/he WILL be doing it all from RH anyway. Wasn't it because of whether the Heli was for US or 'rest of world ops'? The R22 can only be P1 RH because of left skid low (is that the right way round?) but the 269 in whatever format, seemingly can be either looking at the Blue Book as it shows both configs on the binnacle. I don't think it's related to the position of the single fuel tank, (if dual aren't fitted) it's operator choice.

I stand to be corrected of course - wade in!

Foxy,

I always sat on the RH side in the CBi at TAMS (YW). Was that the one you meant or did you have another one there before?

Yup - we had this one....if you remember we were going to fly-in to Tollerton after a 10k run - this mishap occurred the day before.

She was Juliet Echo, a 300 CBi and I did all my training and test on her. Very Happy
Then she was being demonstrated to a buyer (of an identical one) and we think it was either radical wind direction change or shear and there was suddenly no lift at the end of an EOL to the ground and she slid along after a heavy landing then stuck in the mud (yeah - brilliant ground drainage at EGSY between the apron and the active - often standing in lakes) and a dynamic rollover ensued.

Where's my picture?? 4 attempts - it must be in cyberspace!

The reason that P1 is LH on the H269 is because Hughes said, that only poofs and perverts sit on the right. A reference to fixed wing P1 being on the left.

The new 300CBi is RH though.

Cheers

Just got myself a 'new' 2005 CBi.....it is LH drive. Most I have seen are RH drive but have since discovered that you can specify which side you want, I thought it may have something to do with what fuel tank configureations are installed but I doubt it as I have seen CBi's with 1 tank that are set up to fly on different sides. The instrument panel layout is different between L & R PIC configureations. I can't say I have heard of or seen another heli type that offers either R or L PIC option.
