    I have been quiet for the past year or so until recently, as I had to concentrate on work.

    Now I am getting more time.

    I recently saw on face book that Hatori mufflers and now winding up. Is this true? Or another rumour.

    Is there any final word on JR? I am confused, JR americas is still selling but rumours say heli's are going to be cut? JR says they plan to return stronger?

    You would think with population growth, there would be more people around to fly.

      I too have been a slave to my job for the past year and a half. It "feels" to me as if there are fewer new models being released 0verall but still a core group of determined pilots still exist. I think its the learning curve and lack of exposure, expense etc. Also certain companies are dominating and the smaller less popular companies are not selling as much. As for JR, i think many people jumped ship for fear of not having any after sales support. Reputations take years to build - and days to destroy.

      The thing is, we all have to look after our jobs, its where the money for our toys comes from.

      The problem is, when the job, requires so much time, we don't have time enjoy our toys.
