Just wondered how many of you have taken the open book R22 tech exam (PPL), Is it full of performance related questions or rotor dimensions or just about every thing in the POH?

Can't answer your question but I have one for you - which book are you using/did you use to study for the exam? Is it R22 specific or just helicopters in general?

I've used the Air Pilots Manual series for Air Law, Met and Human Performance so far and am currently studying for Nav.
However the APM series doesn't do a helicopter specific or flight performance book so any advice for both of these would be great.

they punch out questions that fall in order from start to finish of the POH, we had a question regarding fuel burn that (funny enough) is not listed in the POH. If you didn't already know it's roughly 9g/hr so if your test asks and it isn't listed then there you go!

I have not instructed in a year, but as far as I am aware the JAR syllabus has no open book examinations, or type specific examination for the PPL(H). It is maybe a school policy, if so good on them!

Type ratings have a type specific exam, but not open book.

What material are you using to study, anything apart from the RFM?

You are right HH, the exam was a school based thing based on the 22 POH. It went ok. I have passed all but one now, left the best till last the principles of helicopter flight for which I am studying bailey and wagtendonk, once I can answer all of those questions in the little questions banks, I will take the real one and keep my fingers crossed

Not all schools require you do the exam based on the Pilots Operating Handbook, although I recommend reading and understanding the POH for your aircraft. When I did mine it was based on emergency procedures and loadings, safe operating rpm ranges and so on. Dont worry if this stuff doesn't make sense yet...it will. If you want to start reading about helicopter principles of flight then both Norman bailey and Wagtendonk's principles of flight are good reading and there are questions in both books that will test your knowledge on the subject.
As for copies of the paper, I dont have a copy of the poh exam but ask your instructor if they have a CAA mock paper for flight principles which you can have a look at. Asuming you are training in the UK.
Happy flying Very Happy and studying
