Ditching In Water

Recommended Posts

So your flying over water and you have a engine failure or engine fire. You enter an autorotation and carry out the best auto of your life and are now sitting on top of the water all proud.

But which way would you roll the aircraft?

Would you roll it onto your side or onto the passengers side?

 

Had an interesting discussion about this and I am curious as to other people's opinion and the reasons why.

Did the pop-outs successfully inflate?

 

If not floats, you want the advancing blade to go into the water first and then sit tight for the ride. Don't know from personal experience, just the ck from listening.

Whichever way you decide to roll I'd suggest taking a HUET course before flying over any water.

Best investment you'll make aside from your helmet!
