    Bell's predecessor to the 212. I did not know Pioneer had a 208, it may have been a typo. The more common UH 1B (205) (for the operators locally) is good for 4000 pound lift, depending.

    I think all the lower size engines have that nomenclature in the model designation. For example PA-18-135. The reason I like this site so much is the learning process from so many sources!

    Interesting; an ag version, but if it does not denote a HP rating after the 18 on the registration isn’t it a 150 when new?

    Interesting about the Airglas not being legal for the older PA-18’s, of which so many are STC’d to a larger engine. If they are legally STC’d to a larger engine like the O320, is the Airglas then...

    Maybe someone has a set they are ready to part with.
    Got to give them a try.
