CADORS 2017C2301

Sounds like a throttle chop gone wrong.  IMO one of the most dangerous manoeuvres for new trainees.  Ya, it's only a few feet off the ground but the inputs needed can make for one squirelly landing.

reading it, it's pretty clear what went wrong...isn't it??? 

I mean, they pretty much stated what caused it....

Uh...no they didn't Smarty Pants. Why did the helicopter spin is the question. Fenestron failure? Unlikely. Fenestron drive shaft failure? Possible.

I agree, pretty clear what happened. Training accident. End of story. Glad those involved are OK.

You're sure of that?

I checked out their website and they say they have video inside their machines for training purposes. Maybe they had one in the Cabri. Be interesting to know what caused the loss of control. Pilot error, mechanical or both. But like you said FZFG glad nobody was hurt.
