1 Touchdown Autorotations A Guide to Crashing Gently

2 Instructor Captain Mike Becker Captain Mike Becker Chief Flight Instructor at Becker Helicopters Chief Flight Instructor at Becker Helicopters 15,000 hours 15,000 hours Day, Night, NVG, IFR, Multi Day, Night, NVG, IFR, Multi 29 years in the industry 29 years in the industry

3 Course Aim To discuss and explain the autorotation to a full touchdown.

4 Course Objectives Entry Descent Flare Termination Questions

5 Roles My Role Facilitator Facilitator Teacher Teacher Keep the class on topic Keep the class on topic Listen and share experiences Listen and share experiences Your Role Have an enquiring mind Ask questions Stay on topic Participate and share your experiences

6 Enter Entry: 1.Lower Collective – all the way, positively 2.Look outside – Horizon Attitude – 60 kts – Cyclic Keep straight – pedals 3.Turn into wind and pick a spot. Entry: 1.Lower Collective – all the way, positively 2.Look outside – Horizon Attitude – 60 kts – Cyclic Keep straight – pedals 3.Turn into wind and pick a spot.

7 Enter Descent Checks Descent Checks Descent Checks: 1.N1 – Engine idling 2.NR – Rotor RPM in the green 3.Balance 4.Speed 5.Mayday call 6.Trouble checks and secure aircraft 7.Passenger Brief Descent Checks: 1.N1 – Engine idling 2.NR – Rotor RPM in the green 3.Balance 4.Speed 5.Mayday call 6.Trouble checks and secure aircraft 7.Passenger Brief

8 Enter Descent Checks Descent Checks Decision Height: Passing through 500 feet, the instructor needs to decide: 1.Go around 2.Power termination 3.Full touchdown Auto Decision Height: Passing through 500 feet, the instructor needs to decide: 1.Go around 2.Power termination 3.Full touchdown Auto Decision Height
