  1. In my experience, the most inconvenient decision (i.e. stay on the ground) is the safest one.

     

    You need airspeed in that situation so that all the fins and stabilisers work properly. If I remember right, the minimum IFR speed for the Dauphin is 76 kts, but for most light helicopters it's around 45 kts. As a result, if I don't like what I see at 60 knots, I'm on the ground - I never could judge distance that well from the cockpit. :)

     

    Good movie - kudos to him for talking about it.
