Robinson R44 Raven, G-CDXB


During the after start checks the aircraft became unexpectedly airborne. It is considered this was as a result of the collective lever being raised excessively, or the throttle being set too high, as part of completing the low rotor RPM check. The aircraft landed again on its right skid before rolling on its side.
