    $\begingroup$ I'm not sure the FAA has regulations regarding this. There is a chapter in the FAA Helicopter Flying Handbook about ground safety, but no specific distances are called out. Only that it would be difficult to develop one policy for all helicopters. $\endgroup$ – Ron Beyer May 15 '17 at 21:12
  • $\begingroup$ This question is incomplete: are you only concerned with MI-8's? If so, make sure you question says exactly that. Size matters. If you want a general rule, the question is too broad (per @RonBeyer comment) $\endgroup$ – KorvinStarmast May 16 '17 at 20:04
  • $\begingroup$ Can't find any rules about marshaling helicopters in Canada other than the signals themselves, If its an air operator the "AOC" once approved is considered law, so any any restrictions in that document would be considered regulation in Canada. As for an FOB, nothing found for Canada. $\endgroup$ – wanna-beCanadianPilot May 8 '20 at 7:35
