Assuming this company has done its homework, it would be interesting to see what data they are using to establish the frequency of
emergency conditions when autorotation is not an option.
If (amazingly) it shows that low-time PPLs in small, low inertia, aircraft are likely to be in this position more than other rotary pilots, there's always a dichotomy in adding weight and complexity to a small helicopter to increase safety. Good for them if it works, but until then, I'll keep watching the RRPM gauge and listening to the engine note.
