    You can get a grant for a Helipad under TAMS

    I would not go up in a small Helicopter because the fans for keeping the Pilot cool are always breaking . You should see the pilot sweat when they stop .

    Ah no, a bit further than that, but where we live we are up high and we'd be looking out on Cairn Hill to the south east of us and you would be just north of that I imagine.

    By God Bog Man, your no joke, I'm after reading every bit of that report. It was a day I will never forget .
    Myself and my Father left from where we were working and crossed 2 fields into an adjoining farm where the helicopter was sitting in a small field on fire. I remember carrying buckets of water from a cattle drinker and putting out the fire.
    We got a paper copy of the accident report in the post some time after because we were witnesses.
    Low rotor rpm seems leading to the rotor blade striking the cabin seems to be the conclusion.

    Low rotor speed meant it hit the canopy . Also he would not have heard the engine note change in the cockpit that the people on the ground heard .

    Ah yes the fame took its toll ,the coke and the hookers.
    Regarding the cause , hard to make out what went wrong but it seems to talk a lot about a drop in rotor speed. Pilot error.

    reading it again it seems to me they suspected the passenger may have been having a go, they mention that he was mad into flying and they recommend taking the dual controls out unless a qualified pilot is in the passsenger seat, maybe the pilot let him have the controls for a minute and it went horribly wrong
