02-May-14 PR-FPL Eurocopter EC120 Luiziania, Brazil

During the approach for landing as part of a hydraulic failure training, with the aircraft already sustaining “ground effect”, a high level of vibration occurred . In the sequence, the aircraft skidded to the left and rolled, colliding with the ground. The aircraft sustained breakage of the main rotor blades and tail boom. It also sustained substantial damage to the ski and left side of the  fuselage. There was an abrupt stop of the engine.
