R44 Crash?

Apparently the machine was at ground idle and for some reason the correlator engaged and the machine went to 100%.Sometimes accidents happen.From what i've heard the pilot was very experienced and very well respected in the industry.

I heard from a good source that the 500 crash in Tumbler had to do with a radio delivery. While handling the radio to a guy on the ground the aircraft somehow drifted. I wonder if its the same guy. I wonder if he let go of the cyclic control to hand over the radio!


There is a little switch on the collective to turn off the govenor isn't there? Thats what I did when I got out to have a pee pee. Poor poor Ian. The season is just starting too. That must be why they keep advertising for 3,000 hr pilots.
