Re: To those who served

+1 Thanks to all who have or still serve.
My best friend/brother in law was Ordnance Officer at Camp LeJune some 25 years ago. Ran the confidence course with him once. (Now that was a real challenge). Real nice major let me fly the flight simulator for the Si 56-D for a couple of hours one night. Had a great Marine experience from the outside looking in. Spent lots of hours drilling my bro. on emergency procedures till I had auto rotation sequence burned into my brain. Almost left the corporate world for OCS in Quantico.

Re: To those who served

Down, right,idle, turn...

Down-Lower the collective
Right- Press right anti-torque (rudder) pedal to maintain directional control
Idle- Roll the throttle to idle
Turn- Turn in the direction of you intended landing area ( left, right or straight ahead with-in one rotor diameter distance from your present position)
Maintain- rotor RPM in descent (adjusting the collective as necessary to prevent underspeed (really bad idea) or overspeed (who cares unless it's a practice autorotation and you have to face the maintenance officer for overspeeding his rotorhead)
Flare- using cyclic only, raise the nose to slow descent and build rotor RPM (Flare altitude depands on your type of ship, 50' for a CH46, lower for Hueys and Jet Rangers.
Level- the nose to a proper landing(HaHa really controlled crash attitude)
Pull collective to stop descent. Always attempt to land (controlled crash) in a level controlled manner.
Disconnect seat/shoulder belts and don't forget the helmet pigtail(that really hurts about 3' from the ship!)

Get away from the fireball ASAP. If your survival gear is not strapped/tied,velcroed on it will remain in the wreckage.

Ride(fly) safely
