Approaching a Helicopter

8942024?1363640922
There is only ONE  way to safely approach a helicopter with the BLADES TURNING. That way is to approach directly from the FRONT on the RIGHT hand side. Then enter on the right hand side. This is indicated by the RED LINE on the attached image.NEVER EVER FROM THE TAIL!  I am motivated to post this after observing recent helicopter operations following the hurricane. Apparently this information has not been conveyed to police and fire rescue personnel. Depending on the operation helicopters may have a pilot and co-pilot plus flight engineer (military craft) or in civilian use only a single pilot. With helicopters the pilot sits on the right hand side. Fixed wing pilots-in-command sit on the left. When a helicopter is in hover or landing or in the process of taking off the pilot must not rubber-neck, or he will lose his sense of "level". During those critical moments his vision is limited to "straight ahead." There are exceptional pilots who can do this, but by and large they can't. He cannot see people to the side and definitely not coming from the tail, where the treacherous tail rotor spins. Caregiver222, among his other other dubious credentials is a qualified commercial helicopter pilot.
