08-Sep-15 SP-NHE Guimbal G2 Sielicach, Poland

Practising autorotation when it hit the ground tail first at very low rotor RPM and one blade struck the tail boom. The helicopter came to rest on its skids and there were no injuries to the instructor or student.  BEA data refers to ” A broken cam of the throttle was found.”  That report also states helicopter destroyed, but our enquiries with Helicoptères Guimbal in France tell us it is definitely repairable

19-May-14 Robinson R22 Tomaszów Bolesławiecki, Poland

Crashed heavily in open ploughed field and remained upright. Reported engine issues.  Blades still attached at root, skid splayed out

NOTE – this is wrongly reported elsewhere as G-OLRT.  The boom from the real G-OLRT (which is still in UK) was sold to a Polish buyer, who fitted it on another R22 without correcting the registration.  HeliHub.com team is still researching exactly which R22 the boom was added to – it’s a later Beta II model, for a start.
