I am new to helicopters with the 222B being my first one.
I have an issue where I can not get this helicopter started in very cold climates. I understand that you need to use the “Start Assist” but I haven’t found documentation on how to do this. My tries at using start assist have been fruitless. The ng goes up to about 10 and if I introduce fuel, the engine goes on fire. I can start it no problem in warmer climates.
Can anyone help me with the proper procedure in starting in cold climates. I was trying to start it in -15c.
Also during checklist it says ENGINE CHIP TEST - Check illumination of all chip light segments. Could someone explain this one to me. Thanks.
