NTSB Final Report: Two Harbors, California

Posted by Admin

The pilot of the helicopter was conducting a visual flight rules (VFR) cross-country flight from which he failed to return as planned. Radar data depicted the helicopter about 375 ft above ground level and 117 knots with no sudden airspeed or altitude diversions before it impacted an island hillside. The wreckage was located the following day, significantly fragmented and consumed by a postimpact fire. Ground scars and the wreckage distribution were consistent with collision with terrain in a level flight attitude. There was no evidence of mechanical malfunctions or failures that would have precluded normal operation of the helicopter.

The pilot reported she felt a strong jolt to the left, and the helicopter began to spin. The pilot lowered the collective, reduced throttle, and the helicopter came to rest upright adjacent to the helicopter pad.

NTSB Final Report: Waukon, Iowa

Posted by Admin

The pilot was conducting an agricultural application pass when the helicopter struck a powerline crossing the cornfield being sprayed. He did not see the line until exiting the helicopter after the accident. Earlier in the morning he had surveyed the area for obstacles but did not observe any lines crossing the field. The pilot commented that his initial survey pass was completed toward the east with the sun “low in the sky and in [his] eyes.” He noted that there were no issues with the helicopter before contacting with the power line. The helicopter sustained substantial damage to the main rotor system, the fuselage, and the empennage.

NTSB Final Report: Clewiston, Florida

Posted by Admin

The No. 2 hydraulic system (HYD2) pulley bearing likely failed due to being installed skewed onto its pulley, resulting in abnormal bearing loads which led to its premature failure. The plastic deformation observed on the raceways and rolling elements, as well as contact damage on the bearing cage, were consistent with sliding of the rolling elements against the raceways and cage due to abnormal loading and forced rotation of a seized bearing.
