R22 Accident - w/o Pilot- sort-of?


Recommended Posts

He got out of the helicopter " to check the tail rotor"??? What? With the engine running.


I don't know about you, but I have always found spinning tail rotors to be hazardous to check..


Lets see, closing the throttle to get the RPM down to 50% may have prevented this, turning the governor switch off may have prevented it, putting the collective friction on may have prevented this, but the sure fire way to keep this from happening.....is never ever leave your helicopter running without you buckled into it!
