bluethunder Posted September 26, 2014 Report Share Posted September 26, 2014 Commercial & Business Aviation Narrative: TSB Report#A14A0082: The Universal Helicopter AS350 B2, C-FXAL, was picking up hunters from a location 25 nm West of Deer Lake, NL. A hunter wanted to measure the size of the animal and a tape measure was tossed to the hunter by a passenger outside the aircraft. The tape measure contacted the helicopter's main rotor blade which was operating at full throttle. The pilot felt the impact and immediately shut down the helicopter. The rotor blade was damaged and was replaced before the helicopter returned to service. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
