I know I shouldn't get involved in these sorts of squabbles; however, I've had a couple of glasses of wine and I'm struggling to see why a helicopter, which I imagine is more than capable of a OEI, outside ground effect hover with just 2 crew on board, would need to get to 50kts before being considered 'safe OEI', does the quick reference handbook really state that without any caveats Crab?
