Robinson R22 Beta, G-BZYE
After takeoff, during the transition from the hover into forward flight, the engine power varied intermittently and the pilot had difficulty in controlling the helicopter, which was damaged in the subsequent landing. It transpired that the engine had exceeded its rated speed on the previous day but the maintenance organisation had not been informed and the relevant inspection did not take place.
