CAL FIRE Super Huey Helicopter Emergency Procedures - Autorotation
CAL FIRE Pilot Tom McConnel and Bell Helicopter Master Flight Instructor Kevin Brandt practice autorotations at McClellan Airfield near Sacramento, CA. The training is part of the annual emergency procedures training with Bell Helicopter. In this straight-in approach, the pilot is aiming for a small white box in the middle of the airfield. As you can hear in the background, he makes it look easy and puts the idled helicopter right in the middle of the box.
