Black Bear Posted November 17, 2013 Report Share Posted November 17, 2013 I was watching some videos of full down autos and noticed a few stinger strikes(one guy in an R-22 scraped his stinger twice during the flare) and realized that I was never taught what constitutes a significant strike. For example, one that might require inspection by maintinance. We have all probably noticed during pre-flight, the evidence of a strike on the undeside of the stinger, without deformation of the stinger itself, but with no knowledge of when the strike occurred or whether the aircraft was inspected afterwards. I don't believe that I have ever had one, but it got me thinking, how noticable are they when you have one and when should it be written up for a better look? 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
