The Helicopter Flight Training Manual has been prepared for the use of student pilots learning to fly, pilots improving their qualifications, and flight instructors in the conduct of instruction for student pilots.

Designed to conform to any helicopter flight schools syllabus.

 

 

 

The Helicopter Flight Training Manual provides information and direction in the introduction and performance of flight training manoeuvres as well as basic information related to flight training courses.

In preparing this manual, the objective was to provide progressive study material using basic terms and language aligned to pilot training at the elementary level. A working knowledge of the information contained in this manual will enable the student to receive maximum benefit from the air exercises.

It should be pointed out that the air exercises have been addressed in a logical suggested progression, but they can be adjusted to conform to any schools syllabus.
