I was at the field today between 14:00 & 15:00 all on my own , good flying too. There is a dead sheep along the fence line towards the gate from the pits, I saw the farmer so reported this to her. I hope no one had plans for a BBQ Smile .

Actually (in extremely simple terms) it is landing on a set of microwave beams that allow an onboard computer to calculate the sets of frequencies and their harmonics of the ships motion. From this it can then predict the ships position several tens of seconds in the future and 'place' the helicopter accordingly. The pilot is there for a very interesting ride! And to pull away if the red light comes on!

On Navy helicopters for sure, I doubt very much if they have it on civilian helicopters especially the ones in use overseas (as they are used for weekly crew changes) !! Suspect

Regardless of Microwave systems and guidance beams - Im sure that ultimately landing the helicopter safely is the pilots responsability!

Navy pilots don't land they have semi-controlled collisions with the deck! Rolling Eyes

May I have my say , regarding that landing, electronics only play a small part and the pic has a hell of a job and making the final decision.
