Green Smoke: [homer.jpg]Could have been worse.
durbnpoisn: Look at it this way... If you were JUST in a helicopter accident, the odds are pretty well in your favor that it won't happen again anytime soon.Sort of like when the plane crashed into the house in The World According to Garp. "We'll take it. What are the odds that will ever happen again?!"
hardinparamedic: they'll typically keep their hands on the roof of the cabin.
hardinparamedic: They'll maintain a point of contact during flight to maintain orientation.
kendelrio: So if you are on a 45 minute flight, you fly with your hand on the roof???Spatial orientation is found by finding a fixed point and using it for reference during times of confusion.While I have never heard of using the roof as a reference point, and have never been trained to do so, I can see using it shortly before/during a crash, but to fly with your hand on the roof just seems silly.
