I think I'll be waiting a while mate. Mining companies in this country don't seem to apply the same level of service and safety standards to their aviation requirements as they do to their ground based travel requirements! With the hourly rates they work on we'll all be using 30-40yr old Jetrangers and Squirrels for a while yet. :lol:

I like the forearm rests! I can see the wrist getting a bit of RSI though :shock:

Great looking cockpit like all modern machines now however the 525 has to be the ugliest thing I've seen to date apart from the R44... Come on Bell you can do better surely

No 3rd cyclic mate, 2 cyclics and 2 collectives. The cyclics are side mounted instead if the traditional 'between the legs' location.

I wonder how long it would take to get used to a side stick as opposed to the normal cyclic.
Hand in Pants, I'm thinking, my god, that IS huge!!!!!!!!

Looks like a set of birthing stirrups.


I'm sure I could get used to it.
