I'd argue they could have just pulled out their NATOPS and not have had to worry about the spaghetti soup that is the P sub S diagram.
No doubt, but I thought the argument was teaching basic helo aero because there is no way there weren't warning signs as they passed through translational lift prior to them bouncing of the lake.

Which doesn't change the fact that RLSO's suggestion would have worked also.

I see what you're saying. I wonder if the class is more of that kind of stuff. I remember the book being mostly about rotor flow and not a whole lot on LTE/LTA. As much as I loathed ASO school, I really hadn't had a decent breakdown of that stuff (LTA/LTE) until then and that part was a good review. I think that might have been the only plus of helo aero in that course.
