This is the fundamentals for how to become a better, safer pilot in the climb, descent, turn, and power changes. 45 minutes The basics of forward flight are covered here. A student pilot needs to learn the correct, safe and efficient method for changing the power settings and attitude during the initiation and conclusion of a climb or descent. Getting it right initially takes discipline, and conscious effort. However, perfect practice makes perfect, and soon the transition from straight and level flight to a climb will seem like a natural sequence that requires almost none of your conscious attention. The briefs explain the all important relationship between the aircrafts attitude and forward air speed. The viewer is reminded of the advantage of attitude flying by looking outside the cockpit to the horizon, rather than staring inside, chasing the needles. Incidentally, this is the philosophy used in military flying, and produces pilots with better situational awareness. It also trains the pilot to better use his or her other senses. For example, listening to the engine RPM, rather than gaining engine information solely from a gauge is a secondary benefit of flying with your eyes outside. Have you ever wondered how forces are balanced on a helicopter in forward flight? What happens when the pilot tilts the disc through the use of his controls? The forces involved are explained. Knowing how this works, will make you a better pilot, and may stop you from making a costly mistake one day. Smooth power changes and the sequence of control inputs are described for sequences such as turning or slowing down while maintaining height. Some common student-faults to guard against are highlighted for each of the four controls; Cyclic, Collective, Anti-torque Pedals, and Throttle.
