The aim of this DVD is to teach the skills, judgment and techniques required when flying in mountainous country at the helicopters power limits. 1 hour 35 minutes Flying at low level in mountainous terrain with limited power available is the aerodynamics behind this DVD. Mountain flying is carried out in higher remote areas where steep rugged terrain, weather and higher altitudes can cause additional challenges for the helicopter and pilot. Mike and Fergus cover such things as altitude considerations, wind effects, approaches, as well as general flying and emergencies. Other factors to be aware of are retreating blade stall at low speeds, especially in rough air at Higher All Up Weight (AUW), and factors like Velocity Never Exceed (VNE) limits are also covered. Over pitching, power settling, rotor system speed, cyclic pitch, effects on tail rotors, effects of terrain on wind speed are all factors to be managed whilst flying in mountains. A must see for all pilots and students who love the rugged terrain or seek to be involved in this sort of flying. 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.
