The ROBINSON R 44 helicopter with registration EC-MHT, operated by an instructor and a student, arrived at Son Bonet airport (Mallorca) after carrying out a local instruction flight, remaining in stationary flight, close to the ground, over a grassy area located to the right of runway 23.
Moments later, the MOONEY M 20 aircraft with registration DE-KUR, which had the pilot and a passenger on board, started the landing maneuver on runway 23, after having performed a local flight.
When the aircraft was on the final leg of the landing maneuver, the helicopter, which was still hovering, began to move to land on the helipad, which is inside the apron for aircraft parking, also located on the right side of runway 23.
Both aircraft crossed each other when they were at the same altitude and at that moment their horizontal separation was approximately 4 m.
Finally, the two aircraft landed normally, with no injuries or material damage.
