That was an interesting video. It's so funny how old it looks. It's dated 1980 which to me seems like recent history.

Sweet. Now I know how to prevent mast bumping. Don't buy a full scale helicopter with a teetering head system....

Wow I saw that movie when I went to flight school. Generally any two bladed teetering(semi Rigid) rotor system can get into Mast bumping given the right circumstances (UH-1, Bell 206, AH-1). Almost always caused by poor pilot technique, unloading the rotor in flight exceeding wind or slope limits. Not very common anymore because of training. Severe mast bumping in flight can actually break the mast which is obviously very bad. Thanks for the old flight school videos nice trip down memory lane. By the way I went to flight school in 1990 trained in the UH-1 and OH-58, ended up flying the CH-47.

Trained in R22, R44, S300C and have flown the Hiller 12E, OH-58C, 206B, S-61, SH-3H (Navy SeaKing), 500E and 530FF helicopters. Mast bumping is part of the SFAR73 training that I have to talk to new students about before they can touch the controls of any R22 or R44 helicopter. That is a great video. Thanks for sharing.
