An in-depth look at the Bell47 and R22, the positioning, functions, and uses of their controls. Very detailed and hands on viewing of controls linking up with the board briefs. If you are in the process of saving up money to pay for your pilot license, this is sure to help motivate you in that process. 2 hours 55 minutes A great way to learn about helicopter flight is to gain an understanding of the four primary controls. Reading about this in a book can be helpful, but as we all know the brain grasps visual images and sound much more effectively than text. This time we start off right in the cockpit with Mike Becker for the pre-start checks, and then a thoroughly explained step by step start sequence in the Bell 47 helicopter. The board briefs that follow are a great introduction to helicopters as they include the all important airmanship considerations as a lead-in. Just like in real life, you cannot just jump into a helicopter and go. First there are important items such as hand-over technique which need to be understood. Each primary control and its effect are then explained in turn. If you are completely new to helicopters, there are some very good close up shots of the movements of the controls, and how they then move the swash plate to transfer their forces to the blades. In a helicopter where the engine RPM is controlled manually by the pilot, some important techniques for correct engine handling are outlined. There is a lot to take in from these briefs, and it really leaves you wanting to go for a fly and practice what you've just learned. If you are in the process of saving up money to pay for your pilot license, this is sure to help motivate you in that process.
