The 12 year inspection. I thought the Robinson's life span is 12 years or 2,200 hours, which ever comes first.
Is it possible to get a legal 12 year inspection on a machine that has less than 2,200 hours and continue to fly it until you exhaust the 2,200 hours?
Yes it is. However, if a helicopter is close to 2200 hours, the cost of the twelve year inspection may make it more practical to skip over to a full 2200 hour overhaul.
