A pilot's commitment to learning is still the most important part of his helicopter career. Improved delivery technology will not create this commitment, but it can nurture and sustain this commitment by offering customized and cost effective learning options within a professional, committed, and supportive environment.
We have collated the knowledge required by that pilot, and compiled the DVDs in a two instructor format including flying footage. The DVD board briefs are accurate and comprehensive, while not being distracted by concepts best left to subsequent Instrument Flight and Type Endorsement training.
The Helicopter Training DVD's contain references to some of the finest aviation reference sources available, experienced instructors. Our DVD's are based on comprehensive research, our explanations are concise, and will stimulate the helicopter student pilots to explore further the subjects that are a vital part of his fundamental training regime.
“The relevance of theory training is only really appreciated when it is viewed from above”
The helicopter DVD's are not structured like a dry theory course, but as board briefs given by Mike Becker and Fergus Ponder, delivered as if you were a student sitting in a classroom.
The warts and all approach will give the students a relaxed yet comprehensive knowledge base for his ground school elements. Both instructors bring tremendous insight, enthusiasm and a great deal of knowledge to the lessons.
The thorough attention to detail introduces students and pilots alike to all the concepts that must become second nature to a career pilot. This approach makes the DVD's relevant to both future in-flight training, and the helicopter theory and practical flight tests.
At times the classroom is the helicopter itself with the Pre-Flight Checks for Bell 47 and R 22 the most thorough pre-flights you are likely to experience. Even old timers have congratulated Mike on knowledge gained from these DVD's.
Board briefs are by two instructors giving you an actual “in the classroom” thorough, technical and insightful brief.
These DVD's include all subjects a student will need to cover, including aerodynamic principles, the aims and objectives of each exercise, common errors, and the air exercises you as a student or instructor will be doing. This DVD series is sold worldwide to student pilots, instructors and even those who just want to know how helicopters fly. The presentation is warts and all which includes bloopers. A must have for students and pilots alike or a great gift for someone you know who loves helicopters.
Another happy customer...
Hi, Just want to thank you for the great job you did on the Bell 47 preflight DVD. I have been flying for a little over 34 years, currently a Captain on the MD-80 for American Airlines. I have always been interested in helicopters from a young age since watching the Whirlybirds on television after school. I know I should have been doing my homework. Well I completed the dream of becoming a helicopter pilot with my commercial add on awhile ago. I have the opportunity to get checked out in a Bell 47G2. Another helicopter pilot that flies the Bell 47 told me about your DVD. I recently purchased your Bell 47 preflight DVD. Your DVD provided great insight on the Bell 47 and its construction. You have a great sense of humor and the ability to convey important information on the preflight and operation of the Bell 47.
Thank you again for the excellent training DVD. The more you know the more comfortable you become. The great thing in aviation is that you can keep on learning. A wise old Captain told me if you think you flew a perfect trip, then one you weren't paying attention and two it is time to quit because you can always learn something.
