Advanced Recurrent Airframe Training will provide the basic introduction and safety features of your aircraft.
The human body’s ability to perform a motor skill diminishes over time if not practiced. The brains ability to recall information diminishes over time if the information is not refreshed. This is just the truth of the human condition and all humans are subject to these laws.
When refreshing these skills and knowledge the goal is to not only try to get back to where we once were but to exceed our previous level of performance.
ESI courses are specifically designed to target these areas in a manner which is unmatched in the industry. Where as many recurrent programs simply throw arbitrary information at the pilot and hope they get it and test the pilot in the cockpit. ESI courses maintain the mindset that its the instructor who guides the pilot to a higher level of knowledge level and performance. We are not evaluators, we are instructors.
- Aircraft systems
- Rotorcraft flight manual
- Emergency procedures
- Accident reviews
Your instructor will arrive with all items needed to conduct the ground school. You and your pilots need simply to sit down and begin the interactive learning process.
Single Engine - Hydraulic failures to full touchdown, tail rotor failures to touchdown, full down autorotations, governor failures when applicable.
Multi Engine - Hydraulic failures to full touchdown, tail rotor failures to touchdown, full down single engine failures, governor failures when applicable.
