An updated flight training guide is now available from Robinson Helicopter Company. Robinson say that the comprehensive guide addresses the many levels of training, from the student pilot trying to find the ‘hover button’, to the qualified helicopter pilot transitioning into a Robinson, to the all-important flight review.
The guide provides students and instructors a lesson-by-lesson syllabus, which includes a written test, for each level of instruction.
Robinson’s Chief Instructor, Tim Tucker, said: “This is the most complete and innovative training document I have seen because it addresses all levels of pilot activity not just from a regulatory standpoint, but also from Robinson’s perspective as to the safest way to train and fly its helicopters.”
The training guide includes:
• Private Pilot Ground and Flight syllabus– zero time to a private pilot’s licence.
• R22/R44 Pilot Qualification – flight and ground training, intended for qualified helicopter pilots transitioning to an R22 or R44, meets all SFAR 73 requirements.
• R66 Pilot Qualification – flight and ground training, intended for qualified helicopter pilots transitioning to an R66.
• Flight Review Guide – for Flight Instructors conducting flight reviews in accordance with SFAR 73
• R22/R44/R66 Manoeuvre Guides – detailed descriptions of how normal, advanced and emergency manoeuvres should be performed.
• Endorsement templates – for all SFAR 73 and flight review instructor endorsements.
The Flight Training Guide may be downloaded from the publications section on the Robinson website www.robinsonheli.com or purchased with a protective binder and tabs from the company’s online store.
