Learn to fly a helicopter
  • Familiarisation with the helicopter.
  • Preparation for flight - starting and stopping the engine and rotor.
  • Air experience - an introduction to helicopter flight.
  • Effects of controls - what the controls do in forward flight.
  • Attitude and power changes - power, attitude and thus speed change.
  • Level flight, climbing, descending and turning.
  • Basic Autorotation - "gliding" a helicopter.
  • Hovering.

  • Sideways and backward manoeuvres.
  • Turns on the spot - turning through 360 degrees in the hover.
  • Vortex ring - the nearest event to a stall in a helicopter.
  • Engine off landing - how to "glide" a helicopter and land safely without the engine running.

  • Forced landings - an autorotation to a selected landing area.
  • Steep turns - turning the aircraft at more extreme angles of bank than normal.
  • Transitions from the hover to the hover at low altitude.
