Narrative:
During the test, the examiner warned the student that he was about to simulate an engine failure during taxiing, requiring a landing from a height of two feet. As the examiner closed the throttle gently, the student immediately applied full right pedal. The examiner attempted to reverse the control input with left pedal, but the helicopter struck the ground heavily on the rear of the left skid. This resulted in the bending of the engine mounting frame.
