1 FY05 Forest Service Aviation Accident Review In Memory of: Charles Edgar John Greeno José Gonzales National Aviation Safety Center
2 Introduction Information Sharing NTSB regulation Flow and dissemination of accident or incident information generally states that Parties to the investigation may relay to their respective organizations information necessary for purposes of prevention or remedial action. However, no information concerning the accident or incident may be released to any person not a party representative to the investigation (including non-party representative employees of the party organization) before initial release by the Safety Board without prior consultation and approval of the IIC.
3 Introduction The NTSB has not finalized all or determined probable cause for all of the accidents at this time. This is preliminary information, subject to change, and may contain errors. Any errors in this report will be corrected when the final report has been completed For accident prevention purposes only
4 NTSB Identification: DFW05FA086 Accident occurred March 10, 2005 in Shelbyville, TX Aircraft: Bell 206 BIII Fatalities: 3 Operational Control Region 8, Sabine NF
5 Mission The aircraft was performing aerial ignition operations using a cabin-mounted plastic sphere dispenser (PSD) machine in support of a prescribed burn on the Sabine National Forest in Eastern Texas.
6 On the morning of the accident, the helicopter was assigned to support a prescribed fire within heavily wooded terrain with foot high trees near Shelbyville, TX. The prescribed fire was supported by the application of a PSD machine. PSD missions are typically flown at feet above the top of vegetation at airspeeds from knots. PSD Machine at accident site
7 The helicopter was pre-positioned positioned and a mission brief was conducted at Angelina County Airport, Lufkin, Texas. At 0900, after the mission brief, the helicopter and re- fueling truck re- positioned to H1 and were met by support equipment and personnel from the Sabine National Forest to conduct the prescribed fire mission.
8 After 45 minutes of aerial ignition work, the PSD machine experienced a sphere jam, and the helicopter returned to H1 to resolve the problem. The helicopter shut down at H1 while the PSD machine problem was resolved. FS Road 165 Accident Site
9 The helicopter then departed H1 at 1347 to resume the mission. According to dispatch records, at 1352, the mission ignition specialist onboard the aircraft reported by radio that the helicopter was commencing firing operations Prominent damage on only a few trees indicates steep vertical descent, two trees shown here. This tree was cut down in order to better observe the blade strike/scarring
10 At 1354, a radio distress call was heard on the assigned Forest Service tactical frequency by ground personnel. According to USFS personnel, the voice making the distress call appeared to be that of the ignition specialist, not the pilot. The call was, "Mayday, Mayday, Mayday, we are going down." No further communications were heard from the helicopter. To main access road Front view of aircraft looking to the northwest
11 At 1417, the helicopter wreckage was found. Immediate rescue operations commenced. Rotor blade in foreground and tail boom were located in front of the helicopter prior to rescue efforts. Note position of tail rotor assembly (yellow arrow)
12 NTSB has not released a probable cause at this time. Close up of severe impact in right forward cabin area
13 Accident Review Board (ARB) Action Items Recommendation 1: Include in FS agency policy, relative to pilot approval (carding), a requirement that agency pilot inspectors review/verify pilot time for those pilots that have never been approved a by the agency (Initial approvals). Subsequent approvals would not require this review for total time. A. Modify all Forest Service aircraft contracts to require contractors, ors, submitting pilots for initial approval, provide verification of pilot flight time through employment history to include contact information in a standardized format. B. Review contract language to ensure appropriate remedies where pilot qualifications are incorrectly reported. C. Modify FSM 5700 and FSH to require pilot inspectors to verify pilot time for all initial pilot cards, utilizing verification records r provided by contractor. D. Ensure all pilot inspectors are briefed regarding the changes at annual pilot inspector workshops. E. Make recommendation to DOI, Aviation Mgmt Directorate regarding above changes to incorporate into OPM 21.
14 ARB Action Items continued Recommendation 2: Recommend to Interagency committee to include a requirement in the Interagency Aerial Ignition Guide pre-mission briefing that addresses PSD flight profile watch out situations including but not limited to loss of tail rotor effectiveness (LTE), Settling with Power, etc. Recommendation 3: Require pilots being evaluated for an Initial pilot approval (carding) demonstrate to the Inspector Pilot their skill in low level, low airspeed maneuvering in a PSD flight profile during flight evaluation. A. Modify Interagency Helicopter Practical Test Standards document to incorporate requirement. B. Ensure all pilot inspectors are briefed regarding the changes at annual pilot inspector workshops.
15 NTSB Identification: DEN05TA113 Accident occurred July 19, 2005 in Loveland, CO Aircraft: Hughes 369FF, registration: N530TJ Injuries: 1 Minor.Operational Control: Arapaho-Roosevelt NF Not actual accident aircraft
16 Mission The helicopter was being used to support firefighting operations in the area and was delivering supplies via external load. The helicopter was equipped with a 100-foot long line and a 12-foot leadline. The cargo c consisted of bladder bags and hose with a total weight of 732 pounds.
17 While on approach to the established drop site, approximately 100 yards away, the helicopter experienced an uncommanded yaw to the right. The pilot was unable to regain control and after several eral rotations crashed. Crash Site
18 After the helicopter completed one 360-degree rotation to the right, the pilot released the external load, and lowered the collective in an attempt to arrest the right rotation.
19 When the helicopter began to descend toward the trees, the pilot "pulled pitch." The helicopter continued to rotate to the right, between 5 and 7 rotations. Final approach and accident flight path of N530TJ
20 Subsequently, the helicopter impacted terrain and came to rest on o its left side. Prior to or during the uncommanded right yaw, the pilot did not observe any visual warnings or hear any aural warnings in the helicopter.
21 Witnesses who observed the accident stated they did not see any components separate from the helicopter prior to impact with trees and terrain. Initial analysis from McDonnell Douglas shows no mechanical failures with the aircraft.
22 In a review of the performance planning, the pilot failed to properly complete the load calculation and the helicopter manager failed to review for accuracy.
23 This is a corrected version that the investigation team computed for the actual conditions.
24 Below are the actual and corrected manifests for the cargo load the helicopter was delivering at the time of the accident. This should actually be Long Line
25 NTSB probable cause The pilot's failure to maintain aircraft control due to delayed remedial action during the encounter with the loss of tail rotor effectiveness. Contributing factors were the pilot's inadequate preflight performance planning, and the inadequate supervision by the US Forest Service personnel.
26 Accident Review Board (ARB) Action Items RECOMMENDATION 1: Standardize requirements for pilot inspections, training, longline experience, and overall proficiency to meet Interagency standards when carded for interagency fire use. Such standards should include: Require a minimum of two hours of annual longline training certified by the chief pilot of the company and verified by a representative of the agency conducting the carding process. Flight hours in type of aircraft may only be reduced by 50% if pilots attend a manufacturer approved factory school. Require pilots via contract, to keep track of their longline experience. RECOMMENDATION 2: Develop and implement training for helicopter crew members under standardized call-whenneeded (CWN) and exclusive use contract language requirements.
27 ARB Action Items continued RECOMMENDATION 3: The Forest Service and AMD need to reinforce to the Helicopter Inspector Pilots the need to conduct quality inspections by following all current pilot inspection procedures especially during the certification of new pilots who will be operating under CWN contracts. RECOMMENDATION 4: Develop a national policy and procedures for Interagency Dispatch Centers to record and retain radio communication transmissions generated during incidents and accidents.
28 NTSB Identification: LAX05GA243 Accident occurred July 21, 2005 in Las Vegas, NV Aircraft: Aero Commander 680 FL, registration: N7UP Injuries: 2 Serious, 1 Minor. Operational Control: R-4 R 4 Humboldt-Toiyabe NF
29 Mission The aircraft was en route to fly a fire- detection reconnaissance due to lightning storms that had recently passed through the Spring Mountains National Recreation Area.
30 During takeoff from runway 12R witnesses reported seeing the airplane airborne but not climbing. The airplane continued down the runway in a nose up attitude and remained in ground effect until impacting terrain about 600 feet southeast from the departure end of runway 12R. The aircraft impacted in a 30-degree nose down attitude.
31 During the accident sequence the airplane rotated about 270 degrees around the vertical axis. The cockpit section of the airplane was destroyed during the accident sequence.
32 The flaps were measured to be at the 30-degree position. The flap actuator was measured and also corresponded to a 30-degree position. The flap indicator was damaged in the impact sequence but indicated the flaps were in the 30- degree position.
33 The airplane was destroyed and the pilot and one passenger sustained serious injuries; the second passenger sustained minor injuries. There was not crash and rescue on-site at North Las Vegas airport
34 The local fire reconnaissance flight departed North Las Vegas at Visual meteorological conditions prevailed. The temperature was degrees fahrenheit.. The flight manual performance chart maximum is 100 degrees.
35 The flight manual performance chart that was being utilized for this aircraft was for an STC with an additional 500 pounds, when in fact the aircraft had never actually had the STC conversion.
36 NTSB has not released a probable cause at this time.
37 There were no action items from the Accident Review Board (ARB). The ARB submitted a letter to the USFS Designated Agency Safety and Health Official (DASHO), National Aviation Safety and Training Manager (NASTM) and the Director, Fire and Aviation on a couple of issues that did not directly relate to the causal factor of this accident. Follow-up on a study on fixed-wing performance charts that was started by the National Fixed-Wing Specialist. Review the recommendation in the Interagency Standards for Fire and Fire Aviation Operations (Red Book) for Personnel Protective Equipment (PPE) for special mission use. The Accident Investigation Team recommended that the Federal Agencies that utilize the North Las Vegas airport meet with airport officials and be actively involved in the development of a new/updated emergency response plan and considerations when staging aircraft at the airport.
