Helicopter HELP Required ???

1898 Views 39 Replies 17 Participants Last post by  oldie
Malta's civil helicopter service, which operates between the islands of Gozo and Malta, has to be replaced due to stricter safety regulations being enforced by the EU and Brussels.

The problem is finding a supplier of ejector seats specifically for helicopters :confused:

Any help would be appreciated

Many thanks - Oldie

I got beat to the synchronized people ejection system that would surely work (test person has a pretty crap job though), and the 'these Fokkers were Messerschmidts' stories. That's all my aviation jokes used up :rolleyes: ;)
Anyway, I thought helicopters could land quite safely if the engine cuts out, autogyration or something like that (as per sycamore seeds) where the wind resistance on the way down keeps the blades spinning with enough speed to create enough uplift to slow down the decent, so that a perfect landing can be made including triple salco with pike, without a step forward or back, on landing the helicopter throws back it's blades, beams with a smiile and 3 judges appear out of the bushes holding up cards

9 - for technical difficulty
9 - for performance
10 - for artistic impression

Or did I misread something?
