A commission investigating the cause of the crash of the Russian attack helicopter Mi-28Н (“Night Hunter”) announced the preliminary results of the investigation. Information Agency TASS with reference to a source in the headquarters of the Russian Aerospace Force of the Russian Federation reports that, according to experts, the notorious human factor was the cause of the helicopter crash.


In the VKS of the Russian Federation called the most likely cause of the crash of the Mi-28H helicopter in Syria


The preliminary results of the investigation suggest that the helicopter crash is due to a crew error.

TASS with reference to a source in military circles:
According to preliminary findings of the commission, the human factor was the cause of the Mi-28H disaster in Syria.


At the same time, research of materials continues, and the version is not removed from the agenda that a technical malfunction could have occurred, forcing pilots to make a mistake.

Recall that the helicopter Mi-28H crashed on the eve of the province of Homs. He fell in an area controlled by Syrian government forces. Both pilots died.

No impact was detected on the wreckage of the helicopter that could indicate an attack from the ground. Flight recorders were found at the helicopter crash site and sent to Moscow for research.

      I don’t want to say what the Mi-28N machine is really good, but there are some problems if it crashes so often. You can’t say the same about the MI-24, I think that over time all the children's sores will be cured! Although of course the error factor could be and there is!

            Autorotation can save on a light machine, and then if you are very lucky.
            A heavy combat, hung with armor and weapons, no autorotation will save.

                  On the fingers, the vortex ring mode occurs at a high vertical (Vy) and low translational velocity (Vx). Those. translating to idle, you have to pour from a great height to get into this mode. Which was definitely not the case, because the guys worked for PMA.

                The propeller autorotation (rotation from the incident flow) occurs when the engine fails or is turned off in flight. And here "But how is he a poor flyer ??"
                Roughly speaking, this is an uncontrollable fall. To prevent this unpleasant phenomenon, all modern turboprop engines have automatic and manual feathering systems, in case of engine shutdown in flight, they install (rotate) the propeller blades “downstream”. The screw thus has a minimum drag and does not rotate. To start the turboprop engine in flight, the screw is pulled out of the vane position and begins to spin the engine. When a certain speed is reached, the ignition system and fuel supply are switched on - “autorotation start”. If the start fails, the light vehicle due to autorotation can fall with minimal damage, the heavy one cannot.

                  This is a PARTLY controlled drop. And with ultralight gyroplanes, this is generally an operating mode.

                    How do you "touch" me "experts", especially those who heard the ringing.
                    Let's order.
                    1st: not the rotor, but HB (main rotor), PB (tail rotor), and OP I don’t know such an abbreviation at all. NV in case of engine (s) failure DOES NOT STOP !!!! and they are NOT POSSIBLE to untwist and start engines lol because the MOA is installed (freewheel)
                    "... if the propeller is cut out - cranks .." - this is possible only in case of jamming, destruction of the GR (main gearbox), but this failure is practically absent, although the instructions to the crew contain actions for this failure. Well, a gearbox cannot without signs: an increase in oil pressure, an increase in oil temperature, vibration and extraneous noise, take and fall apart.
                    I hope this issue has been sorted out.
                    Let's go back to HB. Once again, in a regular flight, it is UNSCREWED by the engines and positive angles of attack of the blades, it works with the atmosphere (Lord, what nonsense I am talking about, who understands do not "laugh" because I can hardly choose words to explain it clearly) creates a lifting force (Thrust HB (Tu)) and also by the inclination of the HB cone, translational thrust (Tx) arises, i.e. the flight speed and, accordingly, the incident flow, as a result of flight in the atmosphere. Vooot hope, though crooked, but everyone understood where the incoming air flow came from, we created it ourselves by accelerating the helicopter in the atmosphere. When the engines are running, due to the positive angles of the blades, the HB is "gnawed" and "screwed" into the air.
                    And another pilot PILOTS a helicopter RU (control stick), SHG (gas step) (aka cyclic RU) and pedals.
                    RU-through the AP (swash plate) control the tilt of the cone or traction HB.
                    ShG-on it the 2nd function: the 1st change in the angle of attack of the blades and the 2nd increase (decrease) in the input power from the engines to the NV because they are interconnected. The larger the angle of attack, the more power is needed and vice versa.
                    By pedals we control the PB (tail rotor), its purpose is to compensate for the reactive moment from the HB, if it did not exist then the HB would spin in one direction. and a helicopter to another.
                    Now I’ll try to explain what RSNV is (rotor self-rotation mode)
                    Well, firstly, on a 2-engine aircraft (aircraft), nothing happens when one engine fails, because one engine can cope with an accident-free landing and moreover, it is quite possible to return to it or take an alternate aerodrome by plane because on one engine, STOCK of power is limited.

                    As already stated above, the oncoming high-speed flow we have since the helicopter moves in the atmosphere, now we have a failed engine (on a single engine) or engines. And we need to SAVE before landing the speed of HB. For this, the pilot lowers the SHG down to the stop, thereby setting a negative angle of attack on the blades of the HB, and the previously created incident flow turns into wind, which continues to rotate the HB. It’s the same if you turn off the fan and start blowing on it.
                    Now the stored energy (revolutions) during landing must be converted into speed damping, this is done by intensive, proportionate taking of the SHG lever, i.e. the angles of attack of the blades are converted from negative to positive, and the HB again briefly begins to row to "push" the air, this is quite smoothly and accurately enough with sufficient skill to land the car. Moreover, regardless of whether it is light or heavy, or even the Mi-26.
                    Uff, well, something like that.
                    And this does not fit the definition of either uncontrollable or PARTLY controllable FALL belay
                    Moreover, all trainees in piloting helicopters must undergo a training program for switching to RSNV and landing, without this, not a single instructor will give access to independent flights and, moreover, will not put the crew on board. Moreover, at least civilians, even military ones, regardless of experience, train and test (with a record in the flight book) in the ability to pilot in this mode.

                  Sorry, dear! And you also suffered the wrong way. What you write about applies to airplanes, but not to helicopters, and starting the engine from the fact that you set the rotor pitch to a larger one is impossible. For one simple reason - rotor the helicopter is not directly connected to the engine ... IT HAS A "FREE" TURBINE !!!

                There is such an aircraft, called a gyroplane. So, he has a rotor, like a helicopter, but it is simply mounted on a stick and on bearings. And its rotation is provided by the oncoming air flow due to the linear speed of the apparatus. But the linear speed already provides traction screw. So autorotation is precisely the unscrewing of the propeller by an oncoming air stream while reducing the helicopter at an angle to the Earth. In addition, helicopters do not have a negative angle of attack of the blades. It is either zero or positive. And even with a sharp translation of the angle of attack from negative to positive at a sufficient vertical speed, your blades will fly off. IMHO.

                  It’s good, of course, that it feels like you are a man who knows BUT for an HB helicopter with min OSH (total pitch) there is a negative angle of attack of the blades because if it weren’t then it would be impossible to spin up the HB again with a loss of speed.
                  You yourself answered your statement about the blades. Firstly, according to the curves of N.E. Zhukovsky, if you have not lost speed, it is impossible to accelerate the vertical speed to such a mode that the blades fly off request and secondly, when landing on the MLRS, "the step is taken in proportion to the rate of land runaway" (excerpt from the Airplane Flight Manual, section Failures) and this is still preceded by a number of actions that must be performed by the FE.

                However, one must also take into account the flight altitude. If the Hunter walked at a low altitude, no autorotation will save him. Not in time. That is why the Kamovtsy are hoping for bailouts, which they are deploying on their machines.

            In order to have time to use the autorotation effect for a soft landing, it is necessary that the helicopter at the time of transition to emergency mode have a sufficient reserve of altitude, or have sufficient horizontal speed. Either one or the other (or better, when both one and the other together)) is necessary in order for the screw to unwind and the aerodynamic forces reach values ​​sufficient to save. Otherwise, the flight is likely to end tragically. The last sentence relates more to military helicopters, because they very often perform their tasks at low altitudes.

              At a low altitude, when the engine fails, it will sit on the inertia of the rotor, it does not need horizontal speed — this is an extra loss for braking in a cyclic step, especially lateral sliding — then the tail actively eats the rotor energy.

              Nobody argues with theory. But a theory without practice is dead. Perhaps that is why in the flight training program there is an exercise for landing a helicopter with one engine. The failure of both engines simultaneously is unlikely (although not 100%). But if the gearbox is covered then yes, cranks.

            Autorotation is when the pilot at low altitude and close to zero speed enters the mode. And if the engine died at PMV and speeds of 200 - 250, then usually the "mother" DOESN'T MAKE UP.

      In Afghanistan, the experimental Ka-50s showed a significant advantage over the Mi-24. But ... Of course, the Mi-28 is more perfect than the Mi-24, but in a hot climate there is no better biaxial helicopter, in these conditions the rate of climb is higher than with the classical scheme. Maybe this was the cause of death? I hope the Ministry of Defense will draw conclusions.

      Fact number once: In recent years, in the news and blogs of pilots, close associates and just people in the subject, you could hear that we really like to blame the pilots. It is convenient, after all.
      Fact number two: the helicopter is pretty emergency. Some have already almost out of the blue fell.
      Fact number three: Hasty conclusion. A day has not passed, the most probable version has already been voiced, which still cannot be touched, unfortunately the pilots died.

        Add thoughts out loud. Even if the malfunction of technology or the malfunction + the human factor is to blame, there is another point - climatic conditions. As far as I remember, Mi-24 and other veteran helicopters participating in Syria were initially adapted to climatic conditions. Perhaps the cause of the fall of the Mi-28 could be this, and not an error or malfunction, but ... questions arise.
        Why is the equipment so pampered when our design bureau was already in the habit of producing such military equipment that, unlike the western one, it worked reliably in rain and snow and in heat and under water? If we lose this wonderful property, this is not good.
        Let me remind you that this is just a discussion.
        The second question. If the pilots make a mistake, what is the Mi-28’s control complexity, if two professionals couldn’t cope with it? It seems that piloting the most difficult to control the Ka-50 alone is even easier, because I won’t believe that green or unverified and untrained crews were sent to Syria from the Mi-28. Of course, anything can happen, and you won’t get the guys back, it would seem what it is .. yes, there are too many similarities and questions. And in order to avoid repetitions, something needs to be done with this.

          2) the technique is not pampered - just the technique becomes harder and harder, and any complication leads to failures
          3) commander of 16 years in service (2000gv), apparently a major / lieutenant colonel, it’s difficult to pilot any technique - especially at night, the human eye is very accurate, but at night ...

      I don’t know, but when the small aircraft was still alive and the "maize" (AN-2) went like trams on schedule to the most abandoned villages of the Urals, it often happened during the flight, the plane fell into an air hole so that all the insides rose to the throat. I don’t know how to connect this with physics or meteorology, but the feeling of falling is real. And here, in the semi-desert area, when the daytime is far beyond +30, and at night - 1, -2, these temperature drops may well form conditions when the air can become discharged so much that it is impossible to rely on it ........ I'm not a physicist, it just seems to me that in the absence of fire or natural obstacles, such as mountains or power lines, this can somehow be related.

        A change in lift due to a change in the direction of the wind, for example (oncoming - increases P / C, along or lateral - decreases), or more rarefied air entering the stream. The smaller the aircraft, the brighter these feelings appear.
        For the same reason, the lifting force is higher at night - due to more dense air at low temperatures, so this is unlikely to affect. But the failure of the equipment on the Mi-28, unfortunately, is a regular phenomenon, and in this case, I think it was the same: critical failure of critical equipment. It's just that it's not politically correct to denigrate the "pride of Rosvertol" - that's why it's easier to blame the accident on the pilots: they, poor fellows, will no longer be able to justify themselves ..
        PS purely mine assumption: a sudden failure of "night vision" devices when flying in a PMV over an unfamiliar area. You won't be able to instantly switch to instrument control - and any obstacle on the way will become a deadly trap.

    Judging by the characteristics of the helicopter, it can perform tasks at any time of the day and in any weather conditions this is the first, the second I don’t think that unprepared pilots were sent to Syria, and the third means there is one or more factors of the crash that occurred, most likely this is due to some kind of malfunction .

    The risk is inevitable when flying. However, it is necessary to separate the "human factor" and "personal factor". Perhaps the sense of danger has dulled. After completing a certain number of flights, pilots need rest in a dispensary. By the way, there are many places nearby for organizing recreation in order to relieve psychological stress.

    will be!!! it is very painful to "snap" the harder the patrol at night, the more
    if you have to attack at night. Cramming electronics and glasses is not enough, the aircraft should be just super reliable and forgiving minor mistakes, otherwise it will become a flying coffin.

    The flight took place at night in almost complete darkness over a low-orientation terrain. Pilots piloted a combat vehicle with night vision goggles. According to preliminary data, the dead pilots were graduates of the Syzran VVAUL. This is commander Andrei Okladnikov of the year 2000 and navigator Viktor Pankov of the year 2011. The helicopter crew, before a business trip to Syria, served in a 487 separate helicopter regiment in Budennovsk, Stavropol Territory.

    It would be necessary to introduce some new gradation, such as flying in especially dangerous conditions.

If it’s small, then the whole estate has remained, and you can see if there are holes from MANPADS or anti-aircraft guns, etc. Etot is not a plane that wedges into the ground at a speed of 700-800km / h, and everything shatters into atoms.
