Novictor Helicopters' N4132H Crashes

N4132H (msn 2403), a Robinson R44 helicopter, operated by Novictor Helicopters, made a crash landing on a sandbar in Kāne‘ohe Bay, after the pilot experienced a medical emergency. There were also two passengers aboard the tour helicopter. Fortunately, all three survived, though they sustained injuries. A pair of kayakers were first on the scene to aid with egress from the R44. A USMC CH-53E Stallion from Marine Corps Air Field at Kāne‘ohe Bay, also provided air support before first responders could base out of the He‘eia Kea Boat Harbor.

N4132H was leased from Higgins Leasing, Inc. of The Woodlands, Texas.
