Narrative:
the student pilot in the amateur built Rotorway Exec 162F, C-FHXD, was performing engine and dynamic system checks on private property 6 NM Northwest of the Calgary Intl. airport. The pilot applied enough collective to become light on the skids to determine torque pedal effectiveness. At that time a strong gust of wind moved the helicopter laterally resulting in a dynamic rollover to the right. The pilot sustained minor scratches and cuts and the helicopter was substantially damaged.
