AAIB investigation to Robinson R22 Beta, G-MOGY

Contacted ground during circuit practice and rolled over, near West Chevington, 30 October 2014.


Whilst an instructor and student were practising circuits over a muddy stretch of open ground, the right skid dug into the surface and the helicopter rolled over, coming to rest on its left side. The instructor, who was in control at the time, believes several factors led to him misjudging the helicopter’s height above ground when transitioning from the hover to forward flight.
