The blades din at the front so it is important to crouch down.
At the back of the helicopter, there is a tail rotor. When it’s spinning, it is invisible, so always stay in front of the helicopter.

*There is a fire extinguisher located on the back seat. It should never be let off in the cabin – only on the ground at the pilot’s discretion.
* On the left outer side of the helicopter, there is a survival kit, which has everything you need in an emergency.
*On the right outer side there is an Emergency Locating Transmitter. It will be activated in a hard landing. However, should you need to activate it yourself, there is a button on the dash under E.L.T.
Upon entering the helicopter, your seatbelts will be hanging behind your seat.
Pull them down across you like a car seatbelt and buckle it in like an airplane seatbelt.
Pull up on the buckle to release. We will assist you should you need.
*Above. you will see your headsets. Bring them down, and keep the mouthpiece close. It’s voice-activated, so if you can near your voice and the pilot’s voice, you’re set.
