Not sure what you mean "Pilots Manual" 1 and 2 - is that the Trevor Thom/Pooley's series? I thought the first one of those was fixed wing oriented, and just the PPL(A) syllabus? The PPL(H) syllabus differs, I was given a copy from EMH when I started training, but am aware there are several sources online. Including this one from veeany's website (Griffin Helicopters).
Traditionally, I think Air Law is the start, followed by Meteorology. Certainly that's where I started. _________________ J.
Oh right. Umm, two schools of thougth with going down the technical route early.
First one is, it'll do you no harm to understand the technical aspects of what makes a helicopter fly before you fly them! The other is, there could well be some concepts there, which won't make sense until you experience it in a heli.
So, if you were prioritising, then I think I'd leave the Principles of Flight stuff until a bit later.
There's very little substitute for AirLaw other than reading (that said, experience helps with that too!), and the same can be said for Met. Although with Met, you can at least look at TAFs/METARs/Charts, etc. to understand the weather, and match it to what's going on outside the window!
You'll probably find that Law/Met are the first exams you'll want to get done, too. _________________ J.
The lesson plans on my site are far from complete, if anyone spots any inaccuracies or wants anything explained let me know, I was trying to amalgamate CAP 421, along with several FIs notes and my own to come up with something that was factually accurate and still followed the syllabus requirements of JAR FCL-2.
The link I have posted above is to the Griffin Mk2 site, which is a bit different than the old one from a technology point of view but with mainly the same content, its not finished yet so some bits don't work at all.
