NTSB Final Report: Lake Apopka, FL

Posted by Admin

The pilot of the helicopter departed the landing zone to conduct an aerial application flight over a lake.

The helicopter’s fuselage, main and tail rotor blades were substantially damaged during the impact. The pilot reported that there were no preimpact mechanical malfunctions or failures of the helicopter that would have precluded normal operation.
