Hello all. Well it's taken a few years but I have now made the jump. I finally have my Rosso Corsa F430. I drove one a few years ago and fell in love with the experience. I've had all types of performance/sports cars over the years and this is what I would call as uncompromised of a street car as possible. For instance I love the fact that I'm looking at a big tach in front of me and not a speedometer. The big window over the engine is super cool as well. By trade I'm a helicopter maintenance technician and instructor so I'm looking forward to doing some of the basic DIY maintenance. I'm going to have to buy some better metric tools though. I'm looking forward to meeting some of the local Vancouver Canada 360/430 owners.. I have much to learn. I'll quit blabbing now. Take care, Palladin

My favorite a/c to work with is the 212. Loved going on tour with it as it was just the pilot and myself.
The first Sikorsky I worked with was a really old S62, then I was rebuilding S58s and spent a lot of time with S61s.
Bell 206s were my mainstay though.
I find the technology in the F430 very similar to the helicopters..
