Robinson R22 Beta, G-RIAT
A student pilot was attempting to maintain the helicopter in the hover. A rearwards movement developed and the helicopter started to descend. The instructor intervened but was too late to prevent ground contact of the right skid, following which the helicopter rolled over. Both crew members were able to evacuate unassisted and there were no injuries.
