Flying backwards

Have any of you tried to fly backwards (tail first) aft with the 206?

Be VERY careful doing that in a 206 (especially with the 62" tail rotor. And ESPECIALLY with a quartering tail wind. You can have some severe issues with LTE!

Be prepared to dance!


You have take it slow don’t get the airspeed to high or crunch

as Xmaster said , speed should not ever be more than 10kt…also the wind direction will have a big influence, the Helo will weather vane very quickly with serious consequences…
