The Feds have it down as an OH-6A Cayuse rather than a 369. Serial number 68-17172, it was still registered to Trafficopters Inc of Okeechobee Florida as at 1 May 2006.

It is one of the original OH6 models
Do you know where it is based or who owns or operates it?

Any idea why all the hughes 500 models in Ireland are N reg
not one is on the irish register!!!

And most of the n reg models here are registered on trafficcopters in florida???

Any one know why??

Yes. It depends who is asking though!

Redwolf,
The 369 model is not a corporate ship, and IMHO the Irish helicopter market is mostly corporate helicopters. Worldwide this aircraft is mostly used by military, law enforcement or utility work, but its also good machine to own privately for fun.
Nearly all the N registered machines in Ireland, are owned privately,come from the same source and are still registered to that source. If you are a private owner, why put them on the EI reg, when the maintenance can be performed under the N reg, by the company selling them . And best of all you don't have to deal with any Civil Avaition Authorities.

Just my opinion

Redwolf,
The immediate issue in this specific case is the fact that originally the OH-6 was a military ship and was never production certified for civilian use. Depending what FSDO you talk to in the US, it can be extremely difficult to certify them and put them on the N registery, so I am not sure how the CAA would look at certifying them.
On the maintenance side, an FAA A&P does not have to be type rated on an aircraft to perform maintenance, so there should be more maintenance personel available to maintain the aircaft.

Just my opinion on the matter.

Sorry Redwolf just wanted to make sure you were not a NIMBY looking toi make a complaint against the owner.

I read it on the net somewhere, I think it was Ricky Gervais. Hoped you liked it, Ta.

no i am an avid helicopter fanatic
it would be a cardinal sin to make a complaint against a pilot or owner
i just love to see as many as i can. last week during the rally i was blessed
to see so many flying over my house. just wish there was more helicopters.

i was awoken this morning by a bell 407 over flying my house. class looking piece of machinery.
