NTSB Final Report: Wichita Falls, Texas

Posted by Admin

The pilot reported that the purpose of the flight was to practice emergency procedures with a certified flight instructor (CFI). After completing four uneventful autorotations, they climbed the helicopter to an altitude of about 1,500 mean sea level and turned onto the final approach leg of the traffic pattern to conduct a ‘hydraulics off’ approach. Once established on final approach, the CFI reached down to turn off the hydraulic switch, and the engine lost complete power. The pilot immediately gave the flight controls to the CFI, and he prepared for an autorotation in a nearby field. During the descent, the helicopter impacted powerlines before it landed hard. The main rotor blade severed the tailboom, and the helicopter spun before it came to rest on its side.
