Ryan Posted October 7, 2004 Report Share Posted October 7, 2004 I went and bought "The Helicopter Pilot's Handbook" and came across some rather interesting info reguarding the 206. Here is the direct quote I'm having trouble wrapping my brain around. "The tail rotor is also two-bladed and semi-rigid. Because the bottom blade goes forward, it is a pusher. Large amounts of it can be missing, and you will still be able to fly, either with 50% gone from the end of the blade, or with a big hole in it." Now I can't imagine the tail rotor still staying on the helicopter if 50% of one blade was gone. As for the "big hole" part, I guess it depends on what you call big? If this claim is right could someone help me understand it? Smoke is comming from my ears trying to figure it out. Thanks. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
