Train­ing he­li­copter has ‘hard land­ing’

North Bay Nugget - - NEWS -

A train­ing he­li­copter crash landed Tues­day at Jack Gar­land Air­port. “Thank­fully no­body was in­jured,” said Lav­ern Ross, man­ager at Es­sen­tial He­li­copters. He said stu­dents were par­tic­i­pat­ing in an emer­gency auto ro­ta­tion and train­ing ex­er­cise when they fell be­hind in their pro­ce­dures. The ex­er­cise is used to sim­u­late what hap­pens when a he­li­copter’s engine fails and loses power. “They suf­fered a hard land­ing and caused con­sid­er­able dam­age to the he­li­copter. It’s not fly­able,” Ross said.
