"We will all just have to agree to disagree! And as a side note, duh its a twin, but still going to lose power and suddenly dip when losing one. And I've flown on helijet, not even 1 of the 4 pilots impressed me at all. Accepting mediocrity, and crashes so long as nobody is killed, is just not my style. I'll keep doing it the way I have been for 3 decades, it works well for me."

OK, AngelsSang: you've trashed their approach; how would you have accomplished that mission? And you didn't answer my question: are you rotary wing qualified? If so, what types? How many hours?

Is that video the norm for their ground ops ? Or is this one off those videos where you are supposed to guess how many things are done for fun in a safety quiz ? I counted 4 on the first watch and six on the second viewing .
It is like watching someone juggling chainsaws at the circus :)

Too close to the ship? You can’t be serious.
Closer to 20 and 12 S76’s. That’s 1/4 of the flying S76 fleet in Canada.
