Thanks all! I am not ready to get too serious yet, but I am very greatful for all your help and all this discussion.
As for the hilo on hanger, I was thinking of being able to only bunker feul for about a tank or so. Yes I understand the loss of space, and the expence for the hanger, but it will be used to travel on and off Yacht as it is traveling the oceans. I am also thinking of having a deadicated crew for it. Two pilots, and the cheif of the boat to keep it very clean. As this Yacht will also be a strong player for corporite interests and fundraising.
You mentioned the larger 4 blade rotors do not fold? But navy birds do? at full beam of 16 m it will be close for some of the diamitors, but I think it could work. I like flying to much to not have the heli with me, and well some places you need it to get from hear to there, better then always looking for a car.
It was mentioned thatwith a pad all is well. Yes, but I would need to be clsoe to my ride, or know a pilot who is rated, and insured to land on MY Yacht. As insurance is not cheap I am finding it would be better to have my pilot and helicopter with the Yacht.
Why is the S-92 so costly to stay rated on? Any one have thoughts on it?
