Dynamic "Hook Turn" Hoisting

#2
Alright I do hoist for the US Army and this is a technique I haven't seen yet. What are the benefits to this maneuver? We currently are training dynamic hoist but we do a direct approach. Wondering if this is something I might be able to try and incorporate into our training and if having a larger airframe may make any difference. Thanks for the info!

Vertical reference from the left seat and hoist out the left, creates better visibility for pilot and crew (much like army pilots giving left pedal on approach to a hoist site to give the crew chief better vis). Also looks like you could get a good recon of the hoist site while in turn prior to.

I agree with that. I havent had to perform in theater yet so adding something like this in training would be valuable to save time on the POI.
