Agusta A109 A2, N745HA
The student was performing an autorotation with both engine Speed Select Levers (SSLs) retarded from the flight idle position. They should have been returned to the flight idle position for the hover recovery but were reinstated too late in the descent and a run on landing was performed, damaging the nose landing gear. The instructor was distracted from advancing the SSLs whilst carrying out instruction for the student.
