Well, sort of, but not quite. I can point the tail of a 206L into 15 knots of downwind hover no problem at all (as can everybody else). What I can't do without the risk of seriously messing up is a downwind quick stop so close to the ground, and terminating downwind. That is the real issue here: if you don't know that then yeah, serious lack of training or airmanship, time for a reassessment of your career options.
