TRADITIONALLY, WE TELL YOU WHAT we’ve placed on the monthly issue’s cover in a sentence or two on our Table of Contents page. That would have been a challenge this month, since our cover is made up of a selection of 49 covers that have appeared on Rotor & Wing since it went into business with the January 1967 issue. Why not 40 covers for 40 years? That was the initial plan. But in reviewing...

WIND IS DEFINED BY WEBSTER’S dictionary as a strong current of air. Although simple in definition, the effects of wind on an aircraft can be profound. To a pilot wind can be a friend or a foe, depending on its direction. Yet pilots seem to underestimate the consequences of this natural force fairly often. According to the NTSB, during the last 10 years there were 48 helicopter accidents where the...

HUMAN ERROR. THAT’S THE COMMON EXPLANATION for helicopter accidents. We’ve all heard the statistics. Human error is the cause of 80 percent or more of all accidents. In a way, though, the problem is in the statistic itself. It’s been held as conventional wisdom so long — perhaps as long as man has found heavier-than-air vehicles to fly, and crash — that "human error"...

HELI-EXPO HAS GROWN APACE with the industry it represents. Just as operators and manufacturers are hard-pressed to field helicopters to meet all the demand before them, visitors to the annual gathering’s exhibit hall can barely find the time to see all the displays and products of interest. To help its readers meet that challenge, Rotor & Wing has gathered snapshots of what some of this...

GETTING THE MOST OUT OF training time is a difficult task unless you’ve prepared with flight planning, conducted an instructional flight briefing, performed deliberate flight execution, and accomplished a thorough debriefing. A great training flight starts with lesson planning. Effective training flights must have these elements: a mission objective stated (or written on a white board) that can be as...

Is There No End In Sight? No, there isn’t. At least according to Lynn Tilton. The helicopter industry is in the midst of unprecedented demand for its goods and services nearly across the board — just about everybody agrees on that. But as the helicopter industry prepares for its biggest annual gathering, the Helicopter Assn. International’s Heli-Expo (this year in Orlando, Fla. March...

ACCORDING TO THE NTSB, ON July 11, 2000, the pilot of a Robinson Helicopter R22B said he was flying northeast about 10-20 mph at about 230 ft agl when the helicopter began to rotate to the right and seemed as if it was inverted. He applied full left pedal and lowered the collective. After about three rotations, he heard a horn, which he believed was a low rotor-rpm warning. Initial inputs did not correct...

A NEW YEAR IS UPON US, AND IT promises great change. Of course, every new year brings change, in the form of a new birthday candle and more grey strands. But too often one year passes to the next with barely a burble. We strive to embrace the occasion by staying home from work, popping corks, tossing confetti and streamers, and sharing champagne. We trot out icons of a grey-haired, bearded old man and a...

Chinook Tops EH101, S-92 in CSAR-X Race In the end, it may have been a matter of who could field the aircraft fastest.

The service awarded Boeing a $712-million Combat Search-and-Rescue-X...

2006 has been a year of learning the lessons of disasters small and large and laying the groundwork for future success. HOW DO YOU SUMMARIZE A YEAR IN THE LIFE OF THIS INDUSTRY? There is a great deal going at any time, and 2006 has been unusually busy — the sustained pace of combat operations, the growth of offshore support and EMS missions, a number of new aircraft programs, the tempo of...

Steel, aircraft, the right pilots, and certain equipment — such as night-vision systems — have all posed challenges to operators striving to meet high customer demand. 2006 PROVED TO BE A YEAR PACKED WITH ACTION — ON THE BATTLEFRONT, IN OPERATIONS, sales campaigns, and regulatory debates, and on the picket lines.
