Bell 47 Wasp

The guys in the Airwork Helicopters Service Centre at Caboolture Airfield have recently completed an interesting project. It was a 1200 hourly inspection and refurbishment on the extremely versatile and unique Texas Helicopter Corporation OH-13H/M74L (aka a Bell 47 Wasp!) for a customer. This single seater helicopter is used for Ag spraying in North Queensland.

Sam Leahy

Today Sam completed his training course with us, successfully passed his flight test and was awarded his Commercial Helicopter Pilot Licence.

Sam commented that the training was fantastic and that he was told from the start to be aware that it needs to be fun but also to take it seriously.

It took Sam just 2½ months to complete the flight training and he tells us that “it’s not handed to you – you need to work for it”.

We wish Sam all the best in the industry as he starts his journey into the commercial reality of the helicopter business.
