After several hours of flight training with
Orv, Bob set his helicopter down in the vacant lot behind the local
Taco Bell so that we could have lunch- Helicopter Pilot style. Bob
had permission from the city prior to landing there. It was during
that training session that Bob executed an autorotation from 10,000
feet MSL to right in front of his hangar, a distance of around 6
miles. Caution: a long auto like this requires a special technique
or the over-running clutch could over heat.
