Helicopter was hovering approximately 40 feet AGL to assess the landing area. The helicopter moved laterally to the right in order to increase the visibility of the landing area. During this time, the helicopter rotated to the right and started to spin about the vertical axis. An attempt to control the rotational spin was made, however, there was little to no tail rotor effectiveness. CGNET was put down after the second rotation while striking the tail rotor on the ground and damaging the landing skids. There were no injuries
Reported engine failure with a total loss of engine power whilst on aerial photography, and helicopter rolled onto starboard side and suffered significant damage. The 39-year-old pilot and his 65 years old co-pilot were slightly injured
The pilot reported that during the approach, he noticed erratic cyclic control movements and subsequently landed hard. Postaccident examination of the helicopter by an Federal Aviation Administration inspector revealed that the main rotor blades and tail boom were substantially damaged.
Two fatalities – later named as Hudson Simmons and Hayden Simmons. Unknown circumstances

A private Schweitzer 269C helicopter took off from a sandy beach at Lac Central for Lac Kénogami with a pilot and a passenger on board.

During circuit training operations, the helicopter collided with terrain and rolled onto its left side. The helicopter was substantially damaged, however both pilots were uninjured.
During the landing approach at a height of about 20-30 feet above the ground, a quick right yaw occurs. Pilot lost control resulting in a hard landing and the helicopter rolled to the side and suffered significant damage, but the pilot was not injured.
The pilot was attempting a practice autorotation when the accident occurred. He did not realise that he had failed to achieve a split between engine and rotor rpm, with the result that the rotor rpm reduced to below the normal operating range. The pilot was unable to prevent the helicopter striking the ground hard. It was destroyed in the accident, although the pilot escaped injury.
The helicopter took off to reposition for refuelling and after about 1 minute, at about 30 ft above ground level, the engine stopped. The helicopter landed heavily, collided with an embankment and was substantially damaged.
Two killed on instructional flight. Reports state R44 as helicopter type but photo evidence shows S300C. Tail boom and tail rotor separate from the rest of the wreckage which was completely burned out.
Training accident, helicopter ended up on its side in grassy field. The two occupants of the aircraft were identified as pilot Captain Manuel Poblete FAP Pardo Aguilar (30) and passenger Major FAP Candle Italo Fernandez (36)
