Helicopter egg drop is another event, unpowered. Its in the physics committee.

Helicopter duration with few changes (yeah, don't expect that triple bonus for chinooks again) will be back in div B next year.

Judging from the current tentative event list, it looks like helicopter egg drop is a likely event, but may be replaced by (standard) egg drop or mystery architecture.
I'd guess that at this point, helicopters is pretty much a lock

Minor clarification - it's NOT in the physics committee (my committee), rather in the inquiry committee.

Whoops, sorry, I goofed.

Oh, and to avoid confusion, expect the name for Helicopter Egg Drop to change, but not the substance.
