To wash the salt water off?

It is a standard procedure for this kind of helicopters that operate in sea environments. When they operate above sea in low altitudes, the downwash from main rotor spreads in air salt particles or molecules that are sucked in by engines and deposited on the different parts of them or on the body, rotor blades and other parts of the heli. As an aftermath of this deposition, a lot of problems, such as rust, are caused. A wash with normal water will prevent some of these problems and extend the life of some sensitive parts. I have seen it live and its very impressive.
