AS365N2 Dauphin questions

Postby starflex » Wed May 3 2017, 22:37

Hi guys,

Interested to talk to anyone that has experience flying/operating a Dauphin at altitude, AS365N2 model.

What is OGE hover performance like with 2hrs fuel, pilot and 8 pax (750kg people) above 6000' AMSL?

How do they handle snow landings with the wheels? with or without the ski's attached?

Any other pearls of wisdom appreciated.

Cheers!

As the previous poster says, it's all in the RFM, however, from my experience flying the N3, I think you are going to be struggling with OGE hover performance at that weight.

8pob at those altitudes, I think you'll really struggle.

I struggle to get off a pad at 5700AMSL, 3POB (plus a lot of gear bolted onto the sides) and about 90min fuel.
Admittedly, it's a terrible pad with a steel mesh floor.
I wish I had a catchy saying like everyone else...
