Jack Harter owned and flew a FH1100 during the mid-to late 1960s. I flew co-pilot during challenging rain gage readings on Mt Waialeale, Kauai,Hawaii. Jack did helo-touring of the spectacular canyons and ocean dramatic coast ranges.

This was a great helicopter for sightseeing tours because of the reliability and the good visibility from every seat. I have parts. I'll give a great price for the lot.

I did fly the FH1100 back in 1965.I was invited along with pilots from SoCal Edison Flight operations and Fred Payne, chief helicopter Robert Mc Guire and Mel Weymueller.Fairchild Hiller in Palo Alto, CA hosted an international helicopter convention for helo pilots, a 5 day event.There were 25 or 26 pilots attending.Test pilot Larry Lape everyone with the FH and everyone flew the FH.It had just returned for recertification for civilian use. I think it was a fantastic helicopter,I never heard anything negative about it.After we returned to Orange County CA So Cal Edison moved to Chino, CA and I lost contact with them.I enjoyed flying the FH1100.

The LOH contract was stolen from Hiller by way of "Babes Booze and Bribes". The Hughes OH6 had the autorotation characteristics of a" streamlined brick" . This info is available to you in "Vertical Challenge The Hiller aircraft story" by Jay Spenser.The Army apparently opted for a slightly faster ship with dangerous characterisics. An unfortunate continuance of past purchaces of dangerous aircraft such as the airacobra in ww11.Apparently the generals think Army boys are cheep when it concerns purchace of aircraft especialy when Howard Hughes is a supplier.

Does George Van Nevel still owns the FAA cert for FH1100? Is his shop still there? his old phone number does not work anymore. Anyone knows where I can find him or his company?
Did Van Nevel also acquired FH1100's design & manufacturing right? if not, who owns it now?
What was the verdict with the law suit?
Please kindly advise & God bless George 818-399-2249

Iím part of a MEng (Electronic and Electrical) research project group at University College London, UK. We are designing a Helicopter Tip Strike Warning System Ė which needs to be designed to fit into the end of a rotor blade. It is a system built on the concept of using a RADAR to measure the distance of hazardous objects.
Iím e-mail to ask whether there is anyone who can aid us with the following information. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Iím looking for information about the dimensions of rotor blades. As far as Iím aware, rotor blades generally have the same aerofoil shape, however, each helicopter has blades with a different dimensions. We are mainly interested in the length of the chord (width) and the thickness of the blades. Iím enquiring to ask whether your company has information regarding the typical blade dimension of helicopters currently being used in industry or the military.

Too sad the way government can be mislead and corrupted. The FH-1100 sounds like a good helicopter. I am tempted to buy one myself, but I don't know if parts and service would be available.
Brendan Leddy, e-mail, 02.02.2009 01:02
Still valid according to the FAA website i.e. NOT suspended or revoked. Please feel free to contact me if you want to discuss where things are at with the FH1100 (I have two).
