DO a dry practise with the people involved first.
In the R-44 the compensation necessary for aircraft movement is substantial.
SLOW is the keyword.
Try to put down the left skid as it will take some moving out of the game.
PRACTISE this first - Like slope practise, but you never lower the right skid.
A lot of times you may not be able to get the whole skid down, but just the forward part or so.
Some pilots prefer to stay completely airborne, but on the R-44 it helps to put one skid in "touch"....
Stay calm and try to move the cyclic as little as possible - it will take quite a displacement to compensate for shifting weight, but this should be a slow smooth move - SLOW!
Best sequence (.... for me) to disembarque.
1) Rear left pax
2) Rear right pax shifts to left seat and exits and closes door
3) Front pax and closes door
Entry in reverse...
Once you get used to this it is quite fun! But watch it, it is serious flying, full concentration, no shenanigans!
Set it up slowly, you need enough power to hover AND possibly take off immediately with full weight.
I would not do it if I have not unlimted OGE capability...
If needed fly them in one by one...
Hover, stabilize, then "slide/drift in" slowly on top of the spot, then start feeling down slowly.
No one gets out until you indicate so!!
Good Luck and have fun!
