Location: Reserve, LA Accident Number: CEN21LA284
Date & Time: June 10, 2021, 15:15 Local Registration: N202SM
Aircraft: Robinson Helicopter Company R44 II Injuries: 1 None
Flight Conducted Under: Part 91: General aviation - Personal

On June 10, 2021 at 1515 central daylight time, a Robinson R44 II helicopter, N202SM, was substantially damaged when it was involved in an accident near Reserve, Louisiana. The pilot was not injured. The helicopter was operated as a Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 personal flight.

The pilot reported that he made a right 90° hover-turn from the taxiway to the runway. He increased engine power and started the takeoff sequence. When the helicopter was about 10 ft off of the ground, the engine power reduced dramatically. The helicopter touched down hard onto the runway surface with its right side low. The right landing skid collapsed, and the helicopter slid off the runway surface onto the grass. During the accident sequence, the helicopter’s lower fuselage structure was substantially damaged.

The helicopter was recovered to a secure location for further examination.
