S-92 Fulldown Auto

Recommended Posts

Saw this on JH and Pprune too!


Your thoughts?



Really have to flare it high, and hold it until the last possible moment......




Gotta put that huge blade disc against the wind ! looks like he slowed to 10 knots or less before touchdown....makes the R22 auto a real piece of cake in comparison..

The H-60 has a high flare in an auto as well. Seems to be a Sikorsky thing. Also, a lot of weight = a lot of momentum.


You see that History Channel special on the develepment of the Blackhawk? Man, talk about a high flare.... Amazing machine.
