N5252Y

Federal Bureau of Investigation, Washington, District of Colombia

270405 dam N5252Y The helicopter approached the building from the front, with two jumpers posted on skid-mounted pods on either side of the aircraft. One jumper was deployed from the left pod, and the flight crew then decided to reposition the helicopter over the building prior to deploying the jumper from the right pod. While repositioning, the helicopter dragged the right skid on the building. The pilot attempted to free the skid, and increase the helicopter's altitude above the structure. During the climb, the right skid snagged the structure; the helicopter rolled inverted, and then struck trees and terrain. Following the accident, the pilot reported that there were no deficiencies with the handling and performance of the helicopter. (NTSB IAD05TA058)

N530TJ

Ronald J. Rivett, Aberdeen, SO

120801   N530TJ The helicopter was being used to support seismic operations in the area and had just dropped off several bags of equipment ( Kemmerer, WY ). The pilot made a right pedal turn to move away from a steep hillside at an altitude of 200 feet agl and an airspeed of 20 to 30 knots. The engine lost power, and the helicopter began descending. The pilot initiated an autorotation. The helicopter landed hard on the right rear skid, which collapsed dropping the helicopter onto its right side. Examination revealed a total of 2 quarts of fuel in the fuel cells. No water or contaminants were detected in the fuel. One ounce of fuel was drained from the engine fuel filter, and 3 ounces of fuel were drained from the engine-driven fuel pump filter bowl. No fuel was found in the engine supply line.

The flight departed from the Port Allen Airport (PAK), Hanapepe, Hawaii, on a 55-minute sightseeing tour of Kauai. During cruise flight near Tunnel Beach in Haena, the tail rotor output shaft and the tail rotor blades separated from the tail rotor gearbox and fell into the ocean. The pilot executed an autorotation to a YMCA campground that was located next to the beach. The pilot received minor injuries; however, the right front seat passenger was killed, and the three other passengers received serious injuries. (NTSB CHI07MA083)
