For pilots who have already mastered basic flight training the first Belarusian professional Helicopter Club AviA-100 offers a series of individual workshops aimed at enhancing their piloting skills and in-depth study and exercising particular practical aspects.

Topics of individual workshops:

  • The rules and phraseology of radio communication between flight crew and air traffic controllers.
  • GPS and IPad software. 
  • Flying with simulated engine failure and equipment.
  • Flying with the selection of landing sites from the air.
  • Sports flights.
  • Checkrides and flight to decrease meteorological minimum. 

An individual workshop lasts about an hour and consists of two parts. In the beginning, an experienced flight instructor delivers theoretical part (about 30 minutes) explaining the important principles, procedures, and possible nuances. This is followed by a 30-minute practical flight with the instructor on Robinson R44 helicopter. During the flight various flight scenarios are simulated so that a student can practice the new competences and thus hone his or her professional skills.

Individual workshop delivered by a professional pilot with extensive flight experience and impressive number of flight hours is the instrument for sharing unique practical experience, secrets, and niceties of airmanship. Individual training allows designing a convenient schedule and adjusting the education process to each student’s personality. This is the way to achieve impressive results in mastering the art of helicopter piloting.

Test flight is the initial part of the curriculum for amateur pilots. The test flight performed on Robinson R44 helicopter by an experienced teaching instructor from professional Helicopter Club AviA-100 allows beginners to assess their physical and emotional experiences while in the air and to challenge their readiness to master the art of helicopter operation. This is also a chance to get acquainted with basic features of Robinson R44 helicopter and the technique of operating this machine. For those who already have experience in operating other types of aircraft the test flight will help to figure out the differences between them as well as to identify the gaps in one's knowledge and skills in order to determine the theme sessions and workshops necessary to enhance the piloting capacity.

Duration of the test flight is from 5 to 15 minutes. Typically, this time is enough to prove numerous advantages of Robinson R44 model and to demonstrate piloting elements included in the training program. Moreover, during this time it is possible to make preliminary assessment of your feelings while in the air and to determine the most relevant areas for practice.

Test flights are conducted at convenient for student time; helicopter takes off from Borovaya airfield.
