The report stated: "The initiating cause and exact sequence of the failure that resulted in the loss of tail rotor control is being investigated as a priority."
Get After the two halves of the transmission train became decoupled, the tail rotor was not powered and ceased functioning.
Although the aerodynamic characteristics of ducted tail rotor have been discussed by many researchers [19, 20], the investigations of the aerodynamic noise are relatively few.
The chopper may have lost balance when the tail rotor hit a tree and sucked in branches while it was moving to the left in order to lower the rescuers to a target spot, it said.
The pilot estimated that eight seconds elapsed from the time of the tail rotor malfunction to the time the aircraft landed.
Since the tail rotor has no mechanical linkage to the main rotor and its power source, it can be turned off at higher speeds.
At 15.40 the shaft linking the tail rotor to the engines snapped, sending the helicopter towards the busy commuter town.
During landing, even a sudden change in the wind direction could affect tail rotor efficiency.
Because of the X-rotation system, a tail rotor is not necessary, reducing the size of the helicopter but making it only able to fly indoors where there is no wind.
"The vertical fin came away, swinging underneath and into the area of the tail rotor. This caused the tail rotor and gearbox to depart the helicopter."
It features a larger, enhanced engine, upgraded tail rotor, and improved glass cockpit.
Though NAVAIR said in January that much solid engineering work had been done on the EH101/US101 tail rotor, Canadian news reports in May said CH-149/EH101 maintenance officers still could not explain the rapid failure of tail rotor hub halves.
