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. _________________ PPL(H) R22
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! _________________ CPL(H) Pilot/Ground Crew
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 and studying
