What a joke! If there is a problem with the blades filing off an edge will not do it. Related to this and there is a lot of debate, what is the impact of the SB on a PT91 operator, does it have to be compiled with by the time stated or not? There seems to be a lot of debate on when or if a SB
has to be compiled with? I would definitely not want to be the first one in the shop for this "fix".

Has this method been proven to help? Robinson states that  this "will improve safety margins". The next blade SB will require us to glue on what we just sanded off. I think Robinson is scrambling to make some right of a major wrong. But I guess we have to pay to play.Will the blades need to be tracked & balanced after this? Their goes alot of cycles out the window if so....

Is Robinson the only manufacturer that has blade issues? It seems so. and, it seems to be ongoing.

I won't be doing this until it becomes an A.D. What a joke. I thought the 66 was in the clear for with respect to the blades. To my knowledge this has never been a problem on a 66, just a 44? Is this true?
