File this in the Whiskey-Tango-Foxtrot file.
Yesterday, I got the following email message from someone I don’t know:
as of this date if i were to buy a used R22 with approx a 1000 hrs on it how much would the total operating costs be per hour if i were to fly 100 hours a year including reserve money for future overhaul
Yes, I did write a blog post in December 2010 titled, “The Real Cost of Helicopter Ownership,” where I detailed the actual operating costs of my R44. But does this guy honestly think I’ll make the same calculations for any helicopter for anyone who asks?
Regardless of what he thinks, the answer is no.
