Judging by the price it may have high time components which are approaching their mandatory life limits.

Thought these helis were around 250K new? even if needs a few parts, 65 seems cheap but I'm not full size pilot, maybe replacement parts are too high to justify it.Which is worse, ignorance or apathy? I don't know and I don't care!

The price is cheap because it only has 120 hrs left on it before it has to be sent back to the manufacturer for a rebuild. Jeff

My point exactly
What is your interpretation of this ?? The 5 yrs statement??

“more than 120 hours and 5 years left to next rebuild.”

The manufacturer sets both a calendar and an hour limit. The helicopter becomes an expensive mailbox post whenever the first limitation is reached. If you fly 120 hours before the 5 yrs, the heli must be returned to the manufacturer for a rebuild (for a fee of course)

Not sure the cost but new blades are expensive.

The difference in the price of a timed out airframe and a low time one approximates the cost of the rebuild
