I'm not a pilot but have been lucky enough to fly in Mi-24 Hind, Mi-2, Mi-17, Lynx HAS3, Gliders, GA
Pilot OK but sounds the helicopter was written off - said to be learning to fly - News report confusingly refers to it as both a gyrocopter and a helicopter.................

FAA ASIAS refer to a Mosquito although the registration given NC25JC looks corrupt with that first "C".
