Training Description

When conducting transition training from one model to another, or refresher training in the same model, safety is the primary goal.  The pilot is taught safety during normal flight procedures as well as when practicing the proper procedures to take care of training malfunctions and emergencies that may be encountered during the  training flight.

Normal flight maneuvers are required to be made to the standards required in the FAA Practical Test Standards guides.  The pilot is required to handle in-flight malfunctions and emergencies in accordance with flight manual procedures.  In single engine aircraft the pilot is responsible for handling the situation without reference to the flight manual.  In two pilot aircraft, if the malfunction/emergency can be initiated so as to allow time, the pilot in command can call for the co-pilot to refer to the flight manual for the proper procedure.

When training in single engine aircraft, engine failure is simulated by rolling the throttle to idle.  The pilot is required to complete an autorotation to the ground without use of the engine.  This procedure is practiced until the pilot is capable of landing the aircraft to the prescribed landing area to the skill level required by the instructor.

A touchdown autorotation is not conducted to the ground in twin engine models unless the aircraft is approved for a touchdown autorotation.  Single engine procedures to a landing are taught following a simulated engine failure or fire.

During transition and refresher training, normal maneuvers are taught & reviewed.  Malfunctions & emergency procedures are also taught, practiced and reviewed.

Specialty Training consists of Advanced Rotary Wing Mountain flying, Vertical Reference Longline training, and Advanced Natural Resource (Fire Fighting) training.
