In the report, the AAIB says: "The examination of the wreckage indicates that the accident occurred following a catastrophic failure of the main rotor
Soon after turning back down the canyon, the aircraft entered another strong downdraft, and once again it sank toward the terrain, its main rotor
rpm decreasing significantly.
Over a 100dB of vibration acquisition dynamic range allowing the detection of small signals such as main rotor
track and balance vibration in a large ambient vibration environment such as produced by a gearbox.
When using the aviation vibration analyzer test set NSN 6625-01282-37N6, For Black Hawk main rotor
blade track and balance, the avionics access door ventilation cover, NSN 1560-01-095-7573, must; be removed to allow routing For the universal tracking device (UTD) cable.
Since the gyroplane is always in autorotation, it is inherently safer and quieter than a helicopter, and because it does not need a transmission to the main rotor
or a tailrotor, it is simpler, more reliable, and robust, and much more economical to operate than a helicopter.

Similar to a real helicopter, it features pedals, a throttle, a cyclic (joystick), a collective lever, which changes the pitch angle of all the main rotor
blades collectively, and all of the required gauges to decide speed, altitude and alignment.

The Erickson composite main rotor
blade program has several goals, said Jarandson.
The H-1 upgrades include an enormous amount of commonality between the two aircraft including engines (GE-T700 engines), four blade all composite, hingeless, bearingless main rotor
system and tail rotor, identical drive trains, hydraulics and electrical distribution systems.
