Advanced exercises and safety through and awareness in low level manoeuvring, positioning and emergencies. 1 hour 10 minutes Since helicopter pilots generally spend most of their careers below 800 feet AGL, it makes good sense to give yourself the best grounding possible so your low flying is as safe as it can be. The board briefs introduce low flying as if it was all new to the student. Items like Wind Velocity, the Height Velocity Diagram, and the legalities all play an important part in determining what can and cannot be done at low level. There are some great exercises to help students hone their coordination skills. Low flying demands a great deal of coordination and sound airmanship. Knowing how to correctly execute a quick stop safely and without over-speeding the rotor RPM may well be something with which to impress a potential future employer, as it requires good judgment and coordination. If you've ever wondered why spray turns are done a certain way, the briefs will fill you in. The instructors explain how slowing your speed places you on the (undesirable) back side of the power curve, and how to make the most of the wind to help you in this situation. S-turns and Figures of 8 are some of the trickiest maneuvers to perfect, but the techniques and advice in this presentation makes them easy to grasp. Once you understand what is happening in terms of aerodynamics to your machine, it becomes obvious what you are doing right and wrong. What does a pilot do immediately after a zoom-climb? Mike Becker will tell you all about it. What happens in a flare? The three flare effects are explained in detail. Each sequence is followed up by footage of a real demonstration in a Bell 47. These are the most enjoyable parts of the DVD, and help to anchor the information you have just learned, so that it is there in your memory for when you need it. 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.
