“Caution! Helicopter wake turbulence!” No doubt that’s a warning you’ve heard never or, at most, very seldom. But several accidents have occurred as a result of helicopter wake turbulence to fixed-wing aircraft. This session will examine the impact of helicopter wake turbulence on fixed-wing aircraft. Attendees will receive a copy of the training material so they can do this presentation at their home airports.
