On 30 Oct 09, Sqn Ldr A Kulkarni (26560-G) F(P) and Flt Lt Abhimanyu Singh(28002-B) F (P) were detailed to fly a Cheetah helicopter for SAR duties. Afterstart, the crew noticed a sudden rise in JPT beyond maximum permissible limit andRPM rising beyond the initial clutch engagement, causing the rotors to engage. Thishappened due a malfunction in the idling device. Using their keen observation andinstantaneous judgment, the crew immediately switched off.

Had this incident gone unnoticed, the result could have been catastrophic.Sqn Ldr A Kulkarni and Flt Lt Abhimanyu Singh displayed good observation anda high degree of professionalism in averting a possible incident.
