  1. CNN's got security video of the touchdown: http://www.cnn.com/video/?hpt=hp_c4#/video/us/2013/05/12/nr-weekend-keilar-helicopter-crash.cnn

  3. Yes, there is a law. The POH states that a NO SMOKING placard must be in view of both occupants. FAR 91.9 "Civil aircraft flight manual, marking, and placard requirements" states: (a) ..., no person may operate a civil aircraft without complying with the operating limitations specified in the approved Airplane or Rotorcraft Flight Manual, markings, and placards, or as otherwise prescribed by the certificating authority of the country of registry. (The POH is the RFH. Youtube user lists his country as United States.) There are probably other regulations that cover this as well. The willingness to break this rule demonstrates a hazardous attitude as defined in the Aeronautical Decision Making (ADM) chapter of the Pilots Handbook of Aeronautical Knowledge (PHAK): The Five Hazardous Attitudes Anti-Authority: “Don’t tell me.” This attitude is found in people who do not like anyone telling them what to do. In a sense, they are saying, “No one can tell me what to do.” They may be resentful of having someone tell them what to do, or may regard rules, regulations, and procedures as silly or unnecessary. Just my objective, professional $.02

  6. I searched the forum and online and only came up with Cotswold Helicopter Centre at Kemble Field. Are there any Brits or Google guru’s that can point me to other flight schools operating this aircraft in England?
  7. Take a look at AC 120-12A, it provides some insights: http://www.faa.gov/documentLibrary/media/Advisory_Circular/AC%20120-12A.pdf
