Hi all,

I already have ppl A. For my ppl H I need to do two exams:

Aircraft General
Flight Performance

A quick question, for the H licence are these specific helicopter exams, or do they cover both fixed wing and helo?

Basically, do I need to dive back into my fixed wing books (effects of aileron for example etc.) or not!?

Thanks, Sam.

Sam,

Both exams are mainly helicopter orientated, but do cover common ground too. The aircraft general (technical) has the odd question about instuments which will be common to fixed and fling wing. FP&P contains q's about density altitude, power required curves, weight & balance, blade icing etc.
Needless to say, it's all in Pooleys JAR PPL-CPL Helicopter manual!

Hope this helps
Si
