Hand_Grenade_Pilot Posted July 1, 2013 Report Share Posted July 1, 2013 As I'm sure many of you are aware, a tour helicopter operated by NY Helicopter experienced a mechanical loss of power over the Hudson River at approximately 15:58Z yesterday (Sunday). The pilot successfully initiated an auto-rotation, deployed the emergency floats, and safely touched down on the river. No injuries, helicopter intact. While something such as an engine failure is never a good thing, it is refreshing to see a pilot demonstrate good flying technique and ADM in an emergency, with a favorable outcome. Kudos points to Mr. Campbell. Liveatc.net Audio Archives:http://www.liveatc.net/archive.php?m=nyc_heli_twrSunday June 30, 15:30-16:00Z, at 28m39s into the recording.
