Advanced flight was initially established to provide advanced emergency procedure training. We saw a lack of good quality advanced ed instruction for Robinson helicopters in the industry and that many pilot’s were flying with only a minimum
understanding of auto rotations and other emergencies, primarily because their own instructors were also inexperienced.
By training to give a greater understanding of each emergency procedure, we try to teach students how to react in real world situations rather than the canned and staged training environment.
This means full touch down autorotation training, simulated engine failure on take off, tail rotor failure and many other maneuvers that aren’t normally covered in regular training are standard with advanced flight.
