R44 Raven II mechanical fuel pump
      09/20/10 08:51 PM

I've got a couple thousand flight hours with dual (one electric, one
mechanical) fuel pumps. I have never had one fail, never mind two. In that
same time, I've had two other fuel system failures (not empty tanks) which no
pump could have overcome. Both of the fuel system failures were in Pipers,
not Robinsons.

In Robbies, I've had no failures of anything at all, but I have only a couple
hundred hours in them.
