Landing Zone Safety
How to Select a Landing Zone:
The LZ should be a flat, firm area of 100 ft. X 100 ft. A larger area should be used during windy conditions or at LZs with tall hazards on 2 or more sides. Site should be clear of people, vehicles, obstructions and debris. The LZ coordinator should assume command of the LZ. The LZ coordinator is responsible for keeping bystanders away from the aircraft, especially the tail rotor. All people involved with hot loading (rotors turning) of helicopter must observe safety rules.
