Robinson R44 Clipper II, G-CLPR


The student pilot was landing on a concrete apron in front of some hangars. As the helicopter descended from a low hover, it was seen to rock from left to right and then to rotate quickly to the left. It lifted slightly in a nose low, right skid low attitude and then rolled over onto its right side. As parts of the rotor blades broke up, a piece of debris was flung across the apron and seriously injured a workman approximately 200 ft away.
