Helicopter Check Ride Part 4 Flight Training Tips

This is a huge Helicopter Training Tip. The human brain can only handle about one hour of any new complicated skill before it needs a break. When you are Learning How to Fly Helicopters, or doing Helicopter Ground School, you need a break after one hour. I am not talking about Helicopter Cross Country Training or Check-Ride Preparation; I am talking about in the beginning. Your Helicopter Flights should be one hour or less. If it is any more than that, it is a waste of time and money.

Before I became a Helicopter Instructor, I was a Police Officer and Firearms Instructor. I went through an Instructor Development course and a point they made very clear was on training for an hour. Either in the classroom or out in the field, you need to give a person a short break. Even if it is only 5 or 10 minutes, that break is very important.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I get started flying helicopters?

This is usually the first question many people ask me. The best thing to do is just schedule a Helicopter Introductory Flight! Go out and get your first Helicopter Lesson. You can sit and think about it all day. You can read books about Flying Helicopters, watch videos about it, and whatever else you can think of, but until you go out and try it, you will not know what it is really all about! The actual Helicopter Flying experience speaks for itself once you go up for your first Helicopter Lesson. Schedule your Helicopter Introductory Flight.

This is your Check-Ride laid right out in front of you. After training a bunch of people over the years, Jed, Danny, Doctor Nick, Gary, Justin, another Justin, I can tell you people do not want to use the Practical Test Standards. I do not know why. Let's talk about your Check-Ride day, your appointment with the examiner and what I think is the most important page of all, Applicant's Practical Test Checklist for Helicopters.

I am sure it was Christmas, back in the early '70's, when I opened up the Verti-bird box under the Christmas tree. That thing was the coolest and I flew it until it almost would not fly anymore. Growing up, I always had an interest in learning to fly, but I did not think it was something I would ever really do. I also wanted to be a cop; I wanted to be a police officer. I did not go to college and got out of school thinking I was going to go get a job making a bunch of money in a factory. It did not take long to figure out that factory life was not for me.

Kenny Keller: There you go. Kenny Keller, Helicopter Online Ground School. Dean, one of our ground school members, just got here a few minutes ago. Gary Cleveland's getting ready to do a flight with him. I just had to turn the camera on, because one of my first videos seven or eight years ago was "Show Up Prepared For Your Helicopter Lesson".

Part 6 Audio Helicopter Private Add On first or go Straight to Commercial Rating. Gary Cleveland: It seems to be a thing that people are going straight to the commercial. I guess the ones that we've had come here are members, and they've done their homework, and they know the ground. We just polish them up, and they've been able to pull it off going straight to commercial from ... with two different examiners. We've had Robinson people going to Toledo, and we've had Enstrom people going up to Goshen.

So, Gary's going to be much better about returning phone calls. If he's in filming with me, course he won't be answering the phone, but once we get done filming, he'll be able to go back down to his offices. Gary has his own office now, we got him all set up. Gary's got everything he needs, computer with double monitors, printer, has a couch, has chairs, so he can go down and do Ground School and not be bothered by things going on inside the studio at Ground School. That way Gary has a dedicated place to conduct business, return phone calls, so when he's down there doing his thing, he knows that we're not going to bother him.

Part 4 Commercial Pilot Privileges and Limitations

Gary Cleveland: Okay. Well, it's interesting, you talk about, Kenny, the slight differences between the commercial check ride and the private check ride, because with my last student I was sitting across from the examiner with the student. He lets us sit in just for a little bit to make sure the endorsements are all good, and then he'll have me step out. And I always stick around the airport just in case there's something that needs to be dealt with or if we have to do a little remedial. And I'm just making myself available to the students.
