Hi all,

I noticed that the last post was almost a year ago. Wondering if anyone is still flying this heli? blitz website is still up, but activity seems to be very quiet regarding this heli.

Do share some updated info on this heli and i think its a really beautiful heli..

80? wow thats rarer than supercars' production!! Been looking around to hopefully finf more info on tis heli, but seems like the info i found are quite dated.. I was hoping to find more recent posts..

There are very few issues with the Avro so you will probably not see many posts about it.

Yeah, thats what i reckon as well.. Low ownership count coupled with little issues probably account for little posts, as the owners are probably better occupied flying their helis than posting.

Good and bad, as i was looking at this heli but is not able to find much info on it. Threads are most active during 2008-09 and tapers off after..

Hello All,

Yes the Avro 90 is still Active. I import the Avro 90 and I have most of the important Avro 90 parts in stock.

Check my website: www.helosaviationtech.com

I keep two kits in stock but when a kit is ordered I order for Blitz, free shipping by UPS, a couple of days usually, direct to you - this is on Blitz's recommendation, Blitz does some up grades and you will get the latest, of course Blitz tells me when any modifications are made and send me the replacement parts as required.

Have a great flying summer to all and remember nothing you can buy will improve your flying more than burning fuel with apurpose and plan!
