Do people not use clock code and distances to specify targets/threats/landing areas?

Anyone hear any considerations for OEI? Flyaway/escape route etc? Yes, I know they were in a 139 but they didn't mention the PI at all.

Fortunately the outcome was good but we could easily have been looking at an accident there.

AW139 2up or 5 and two dogs low fuel donít think OEI would have been a problem.
You donít have to operate to PC1 or 2 just because itís a ME
