This is one hell of a good question. I have found no data anywhere that leads me to believe that the Mi-8 can not suffer from mast bumping, nor have I found data that confirms that it does.

If you can find that answer, I would appreciate it. I will modify the guide accordingly.

Mast bumping is only an issue on two-bladed, teetering rotor systems (semi-rigid rotor system). Rigid (BO105, EC135, Bell 412, etc.) and fully-articulated rotor systems (anything with more than two rotor blades that's not rigid) are immune to mast bumping.

Good to know, I deleted the page about mast bumping.

I should've suspected that... especially since I wrote that "Mast Bumping was applicable to two-bladed rotors only".

I can be such a dumbnut sometimes.
