Covers engine failure at the hover, take off and landing, transitions to and from the hover, taxi and pattern hover. Once you have the helicopter three feet above the ground you need to be able to manoeuvre it and put it on the ground. This is an integral part of what a helicopter pilots does every single day of their career. 1 hour This DVD features two separate classroom style board briefs about Hovering and how to land safely should your engine fail while at the Hover, followed by actual real-life in-flight sequences for demonstration purposes. Not with a sense of humor, Fergus Ponder takes the viewer through basic airmanship considerations including Handover techniques and wind velocity, before diving into the juicy topic of the Hover. Each set of controls, pedals, collective and cyclic and their use at the Hover, are discussed. This is complimented with real-life practical tips to improving your Hover and getting a feel for how to judge your (the helicopters) position relative to objects in the vicinity. He then outlines important considerations for engine failures at the Hover and at Hover-Taxi. Mike Beckers brief includes an in-depth look at the effect of wind on the Ground Cushion and Rotorwash. How does a pilot define Hover Heights? How will you know the local wind direction? What engine handling considerations are there at the Hover? All will be revealed. A normal air exercise which a student could expect to encounter early in his/her training is outlined including some useful tips regarding the feel of the machine. The flying sequences are all filmed from the perspective of a person on the ground outside the helicopter and include pedal turns, general hovering patterns and of course simulated engine failures at various stages, including Taxi. Pay special attention to the small smooth movements that the pilots use to manipulate the controls and the obvious loss of rotor RPM when the throttle is closed on each failure exercise. These flying sequences are all shown in this DVD. PAL and NTSC formats supported on all NEW DVD machines will play these DVD's. Your laptop will play the DVD's beautifully. All Region DVDs.
