SHOW INTEREST FOR 4:TH NOVEMBER 2017
TRY THE PILOT JOB FOR ONE DAY
No previous experience is needed. Everything you have to do is to be over 16 years old, not be over 220 cm long and weight more than 130 kilo. It´s perfect if you want to try if the job is right for you, or you just want to experience the feeling of flying a helicopter. You can do it yourself, or why not give it away as a present or experience for one, two or three friends.
1. You arrive at Säve Airport and meet up with a helicopter pilot and instructor. The first thing to do it have a cup of coffee, go through the weather situation and the plans for the day. If you are lucky you will meet other students and pilots from or to flight – ask them questions and try to play cool.
2. Then its time for a short brief of flight theory. We will go through three of our most important subjects. Principles of flight (POF) were we learn how, why and when we can fly, Flight Planning so we go to the right places, and the rules of the air (Air Law) so we don´t do anything stupid or put people in danger.
3. Now it´s time to get familiar with the helicopter. In the hangar we do the ”pre-flight inspections” just to make sure the helicopter is still safe to fly. When we are satisfied it´s time to pull the helicopter out and re-fuel if necessary. When we feel satisfied with the helicopter we take our place in the cockpit.
4. Inside cockpit we do the last checks on the controls. When we see everything is working as it should we start, lift up and fly away. Over the beautiful islands of the west coast we will practice on climbing, speed changes and turning. After a while you will take the helicopter back to the airport, do the approach and together we will land smoothly.
