Helicopter Maintenance

When is the last time you did a thorough pre-flight check? Do you know how to find all the items on your check list? Have you ever wondered what a certain pipe or cable actually does on the aircraft? Do you want to see the helicopter from an engineer’s perspective?

This is an advanced course designed to familiarise you with the technical aspects of your aircraft. The knowledge gained on this course will make you a more aware and safer pilot.

You will be brought to a maintenance facility where an engineer will spend approximately one hour with you showing you a full walk round of the aircraft. You will be shown things to look for that are not on any check list and you will get your hands dirty.

After a quick wash-up and a cup of tea, you will be shown around the maintenance facility. The importance of record keeping will be stressed. Emphasis will be placed on the technical logs and aircraft documents.
