An updated flight training guide is now available from Robinson Helicopter Company, whose helicopters have become synonymous with flight training. The comprehensive guide addresses the many levels of training, from the student pilot trying to find the “hover button,” to the rated helicopter pilot transitioning into a Robinson, to the all-important flight review.
The guide provides students and instructors a lesson-by-lesson syllabus, which includes a written test, for each level of instruction.
Robinson’s chief instructor, Tim Tucker, said: “This is the most complete and innovative training document I have seen because it addresses all levels of pilot activity not just from a regulatory standpoint, but also from Robinson’s perspective as to the safest way to train and fly its helicopters.”
