    Mmmm, how to put this delicately......
    Apparently some of the Bell engineers found their wives sleeping with mechanics, and exacted revenge.
    In all seriousness, it is a fairly good aircraft. The engines are pretty difficult to access on the inboard sides, but if those Lycomings have the upgraded infusion liners, they will usually run to the 1800 hr every time with no problemsThe driveline is very robust, and usually gives no problems. Tial and main rotor balance is pretty important, as it keeps your unneccessary service events down (vibrations cause cracks).
    I would highly recommend using Aeroshell 22, not Mobil28 in everything, the Mobil always leaves brinelling on stuff like the swashplate triplex bearing and the TR trunnions, where the Aero usually does not.
    yes you can have overkill....... but, can you ever have too much overkill?

    One word, the 222 is an unsupported fleet, Bell does not really want anything to do with it any more.
    So, it is starting to disappear, as some people find out that an airworthy deuce is worth less than the parts.

    Oh yeah, never ever ever stand inside the rotor arc on the first startup after servicing. Always lean on the aircraft fuselage. They sling about a pound of grease every time from the swashplate, and will leave a stripe across your shirt, pants, face, etc.
