Mission StatementI have great respect for the dangers of flying helicopters. I treat every machine like it’s my own. You can be a sloppy pilot & live a long time. A sloppy or careless mechanic will reap what he sows very quickly. Attention to detail is critical when working on helicopters. With proper preventative maintenance the RHC R22/R44/R66 will fly the life of the machine with ease.
There is a calming effect when balanced below .08 IPS. The RHC MM calls for only checking balance in a hover, but we check balance in forward flight. If your track is spot on, you will see the vibration levels at or below .10 IPS up to 130 kts. We are able to get perfect track in a hover through 130 kts.

Evaluate the log books & the maintenance history.
Pre-flight inspection - We can tell rite away how hard the machine has been flown & the type of conditions (salty, dusty, ect.) it's operated in.
Overspeed inspection - check the spindles for any brinelling. It's not uncommon to see slight brinelling. Especially on a flight school ship.
I've cracked paint on inspection panels on newer helicopters. You need to make sure the signed off log book inspections were actually done. It takes alot of time to follow the RHC MM/ Lycoming OM procedures.
Test flight – We can tell rite away how tight everything is, the smoothness of the machine and if there is any power issues.
100 hr. inspection for any discrepancies if required.
