Safety Through Helicopter Simulators...

The NTSB has prepared a video on the use of simulators to prevent crashes. I wish I was not as familiar with the crashes discussed, but this is a small industry and I know them all too well. Pay special attention to the point that our current auto-rotation training does not prepare us for a forced landing/engine failure sequence. Mental rehearsal and proper mindset are going to be key if our one motor quits.
