The student was on a pre-solo exercise.
The instructor and student involved walked out unscathed other than a small bruise on the forehead of the student.
They where taken to hospital and was checked out before released an hour ago.
Due to 43 Air School's track record, the SACAA entrusted the investigation with the Safety Officer of 43 Air School, Mr Des Lynch.
The helicopter was removed from the scene of the accident after the CAA gave permission to do so.
A full investigation will follow.
The SACAA got the photo's before close down for the year.
It is obvious that I cannot release any photo's.
A sad day, but at least the crew are unscathed and no fire ensued ( which was the biggest blessing ever as the battery broke loose and fuel was dripping out everywhere )
