Operating the helicopter with minimum power as found in high altitudes, high density altitude, hot temperatures or heavy loaded. Positioning the helicopter in small confined areas and how to assess those areas. Includes footage of a Jetranger helicopter flying into a cave - now that's worth a look! 2 hour 35 minutes For part of your helicopter career you will operate a helicopter with adequate power and in some cases have power in reserve, however power availability will be a prime consideration and limiting factor in some areas of helicopter operations. For example confined area operations, mountain flying, low flying and underslung loads. Power availability is a major consideration and limiting factor in actual commercial operations. On many commercial operations the helicopter must operate at maximum power during certain phases of flight, normally landing and taking off at maximum all up weight. At maximum power, correct pilot technique will be necessary to obtain optimum aircraft performance, and to satisfactory and safely complete a job. Pilot techniques depends on density altitude, atmospheric conditions on the day, including wind, power margins available, helicopters takeoff weight (TOW), helicopters landing and takeoff area and pilot experience. All these are covered in this DVD. Confined areas is where the seat of the pants flying begins and where you must get a "feel" for what your are doing because instruments will not help you here due to the inherent drag. Confined areas is why many helicopter pilots chose this career. It's what helicopters were built for. Learn how power settling feels and looks like. If you ever encounter it in a confined area operating close to the ground, you'll have the skills and recovery tools in hand.
