Bell 212 Twin Huey engine start and take off from Karres Heli Austria base 3

We made our third Austria winter trip this February.

Our main destination this year was Innsbruck again, but we spend the first day at Karres, next to Heli Austria, Martin Flugrettung helicopter base.
In the base there was an MD-902 on duty, but in the hangar there were some surprise…

One of these surprises was the Heli Tirol Bell 212 heavy lift helicopter.
The Bell 212 Twin Huey is a two-blade, twin-engine, medium helicopter that first flew in 1968. The 212 is marketed to civilian operators and has a fifteen-seat configuration, with one pilot and fourteen passengers. In cargo configuration the 212 has an internal capacity of 6.23 m³ an external load of up to 2,268 kg can be carried. In addition to military purposes, the type mostly used to air ambulance, air police patrol, border control, firefighting and heavy lifting.

The small brother of the 212 is the Bell UH-1 Huey, one of the most famous helicopter in the world, from Vietnam War.

Idén februárban sikerült összehoznunk harmadik téli Ausztria túránkat is.

Fő úti célunk az Innsbruck repülőtérhez tartozó Christophorus 1 mentőhelikopter bázis volt, de első napunkat Karres település mellett található Heli Austria, Martin Flugrettung bázison töltöttük.
Az ügyeletes helikopter egy McDonell Douglas MD-902 volt, de a hangárból több meglepetés is előkerült a nap folyamán…

Egyin nagy meglepetés a Heli Tirol Bell 212 teheremelő helikoptere volt.
A Bell 212 Twin Huey egy kétlapátos, kéthajtóműves közepes méretű helikopter, amely 1968-ban emelkezdett először a levegőbe. A típus legnagyobb kapacitásában 14 utas, 6,23 m³ átmérőjű belső teher vagy 2,268kg függesztett teher szállítására képes.
A katonai felhasználáson kívül szerte a világon használják személyszállításra, teherszállításra, légimentésre, tűzoltásra és rendőrségi megfigyelő vagy határőr célokra.

A Twin Huey „kisöccse” a Bell UH-1 Huey a világ egyik legismertebb helikoptere, a Vietnami háborúban vált híressé.

O that is gorgeous. What surprised me is flying tail down a few degrees. I usually see choppers tail up or level especially around here. Visibility I believe. Isn't that a little uncomfortable? O yeah, I love the sounds of that behemoth.
