PostForum: Student Pilots & Hour Builders   Posted: Thu Sep 09, 2010 3:30 am   Subject: First R44 time
First lesson in the R44 today. The familiarity is there, but the difference in feel from the R22 is neat. Really enjoyed it. Would highly recommend having a go at it to anyone out there with only R22 ...

In the US a student pilot certificate is required for solo (along with endorsements), but the only requirement to get it is a medical. In fact, the student pilot certificate is physically the same doc ...

I just got both those, myself (already had the POH). I would definitely recommend the video. I understand in the US (or at least at my flight school) it's a pre-solo requirement to watch the video, a ...

bom,

I mostly second the previous reply. It's a nice, readable overview of the helicopter and it's systems and the like. I would not suggest it as a substitute for the POH, but as a supplement.

Care? Sure. It's good to be in touch with the plight (= joy?) of fellow students. I hope that good weather extends to the mid-left coast of North America, as I may have my first (helicopter) solo Satu ...

Does anyone here with a legal bent know why what the rest of the world calls a "pilot's license" is in the US called a "pilot certificate"?

I'm Matt, in the US. Always intrigued by things that fly. I got a fixed-wing Private certificate in college (in 2003), but only recently was bit by helicopter bug. I think it's the shear complexity ...

glick,

I haven't invested in an active headset, but I can give some references on passives. When I started flying (fixed wing) I was looking for a CHEAP decent headset, and landed on the Lightspeed ...
