Increases overhaul maintenance and inspection schedule from 200
to 250 hours
Canadian Home Rotors Inc. (CHR), manufacturers of the
award-winning Safari Helicopter Kit, has announced
an enhancement and benefit to Safari owners.
Through long and thorough testing, the company has
reached a decision to extend the maintenance intervals and TBO
time for the Safari. To date the maintenance intervals for the
Safari have been set at 200 hours, almost two years of flying for
most private pilots. Now they will extend the maintenance schedule
to 250 hours between these significant maintenance periods. That's
a 25% increase.
According to CHR, this will be one of the longest inspection
periods in the homebuilt helicopter industry and most of the
certified helicopter industry as well. To its customers,
this will work out to a further savings of over $800 over 1,000
hours of operation.
