Initial Airframe Training
Initial Airframe Training will provide the basic introduction and safety features of your aircraft.
The old saying “you don’t know what you don’t know until you know it” stands very true when it comes to the safe operation of any helicopter. In todays world not knowing is not an option.
Every airframe not only has a wide variety of systems, emergency procedures and limitations but also has unique nuances that if unknown can lead to unwanted results. This information can be obtained by trail and error and years of flight time or can be thoroughly and easily learned by attending a professional course that relays this information in a designed manner.
EuroSafety courses are designed to relay this massive amount of information in an easy to understand fashion with visuals that accelerate the learning process by instructors who’s passion it is to teach.
