Guys,

I just finished my new book covering the Robinson R22 systems. It is not a rehash of the R22 Flight Manual. Instead it covers each system of the R22, a system per chapter, in reasonable detai ...

As anyone who has dealt directly with Robinson can tell you, any document that Robinson puts out, is so Robinson can cover their butt. To get the Robinson insurance you have to agree to hold Robinson ...

Over the year and a half, I have owned my Enstrom (F28C), I have taken several pilots who have flown only R22's for demos. While they have issues with the throttle usage (no governor or colalator) ini ...

Actually, they may be taking a page from the drug dealers' playbook. Give them a free sample and then reel them in once they are hooked. After all this activity is an addiction.

First of all calling the H/V curve 'the dead man's curve' is a misnomer. An engine failure within the cross hatched areas is not a death sentence. All it means is the outcome of the maneuver is in dou ...

Personally I would expand your search a little bit. There are other helicopters out there that you can learn on and own economically. I have flown the R22 and Bell 47. Yes the R22 is not as forgiving ...

I will be right up front about it. I learn in a 300C and feel it is one of the best trainers out there. To compete with the R22, Schweitzer brought out the CB which has a similar operating cost to the ...

It can be overwhelming if you look at the whole process. However, take one step at a time and it works out fine. Do not skip steps, as they are the building blocks of the future steps.
