B206 classic

05-28-2015 07:40:36

After many years and 4 R44's, I bought a nice old 206 and have enjoyed it. SN 178, it's in great shape,has excellent air conditioning, properly maintained on a 135 certificate and never used for hard work. Most of it's life was with a single owner (my CFI II) who has over 20,000 hours in rotors. No damage, always hangered. Now, I'm ready to sell it at a very fair price and would love for a RHOG member who needs a turbine to have first crack at it. Selling as we are likely moving and I can't take it with me... Neil 302-234-8950 N414SK PS: Grant, I want to post and ad and pay you for it but I can't figure out how to do that on this new and improved site....

I suggest to check out when cranking the voltage drop at accross the input and output terminals of both the Master and Starter relays. If there is a bad internal connection that would explain the problem if the starter motor is normal.

Hope it helps.

Kind regards,

I put up photos of the interior on Dropbox for everyone.

https://www.dropbox.com/sh/3iagp0u0nxk48mb/AAC0CbsG_sXvD45Nf9zDWpXRa?dl=0

I also want to offer RHOG members an even better deal by dropping the price to 280,000 and I'll throw in 5 Bose Noise Cancelling Headsets, 2 Garmin 496's, and an iPad mini, all of which are configured to fit in the helicopter and part of what I usually use when I fly.

Other electonics inlcude: King KMA 24H controller, King 76A encoder, 2 King 196 comms, Apollo GX55 GPS, 2 panel mounted USB ports, 2 other power ports for GPS's, 1 music input jack for an iPod, and an iPad Mini that mounts at the bottom of the panel with a Stratus Navigation Box so you get radar/maps/glass cockpit on Foreflight for free while in flight. It also has Bear Paws for landing on softer ground or beaches and high skids. It never had external load work or a cargo hook. New battery.

I am only the 4th owner. It was bought new by Timex as an executive transport machine. Don't know much about the 2nd owner, The third owner bought it around 1985 and is my CFI with over 22,000 in rotor; this was his ship and he flew it for powerline, photography, and charter as well as personal use. I bought it from him in 9/2013 so it never left the hanger or mechanic who has been with it for years.

The air conditioning is rare on these ships and this one can get as cold as a meat locker! It has the range extender tanks for total fuel load of 96 gallons. 3.5-4 hours of cruise time is sweet.

In the Dropbox is a spread sheet with all the hours. The 1st and 2nd wheels have about 130 hours left, which for many of us is a couple of years. Unlike the R44, every part on the 206 has its own TBO so you have to get used to that issue. I burn about 25/hour when loaded and pushing, and often much less as I tend to run around 70% Torque because I'm just rarely in a hurry.

Please let me know as I am likely to give it to a broker and as they get a commission, we both would do worse....And Grant, please send me a bill as this really counts as a classified but I couldn't figure out how to do that.

What is the useful load of this machine? I am currently using a R44 for spraying and we are interested in upgrading to a 206, but it needs to be able to carry a good sized load.

Where are you located? I have some more questions about 206's in general if you wouldn't
mind answering a few!

Neil,

Would you estimate that within the next 150 hours the helicopter will need a minimum of $150,000 in overhauls and inspections?
I notice the turbine has stuff coming up for replacement or overhaul and several other major components are gonna be timing out fairly soon.
Your ship is really clean and well maintained but the components needed in the near future look substantial.
Please correct me if I'm in error.
Thank you.

13snoopy, I think you are high. My mechanic is estimating 65-85,000. That being said, if anyone is interested I'll drop the price to 235,000.
