A helicopter is susceptible to a lateral rolling tendency, called dynamic rollover, when lifting off the surface.
Dynamic rollover begins when the helicopter starts to pivot around its skid or wheel. This can occur for a variety of reasons, including the failure to remove a tiedown or skid securing device, or if the skid or wheel contacts a fixed object while hovering sideward, or if the gear is stuck in ice, soft asphalt, or mud. Dynamic rollover may also occur if the pilot does not use the proper landing or takeoff technique or while performing slope operations. Whatever the cause, if the gear or skid becomes a pivot point, dynamic rollover is possible if the pilot does not use the proper corrective technique.
Once started, dynamic rollover cannot be stopped by application of opposite cyclic control alone. For example, if the left skid contacts an object and becomes the pivot point while the helicopter starts rolling to the left, even with full right cyclic applied the main rotor thrust vector and its moment follows the aircraft as it continues rolling to the left. Quickly applying down collective is the most effective way to stop dynamic rollover from developing. Dynamic rollover can occur in both skid and wheel equipped helicopters, and with all types of rotor systems.
