This video was filmed in the Summer of 09 using our Robinson R-44 and R-22 helicopters. We did this to show the fun side of flying in and around the Boston area to give prospective students a look at what it's like to fly in and around the New England area.
Reducing Autorotation Speed to Reduce Distance
In this video we demonstrate how to reduce your autorotation glide distance by reducing the airspeed. This reduces sink rate, but also slows the approach to your spot. For more asvanced autorotations, visit our blog.
Zero Airspeed Pedal Turn Autorotation Robinson R22
Teaching zero airpspeed autorotations with pedal turns to 180 in our Robinson R22.
Ridgeline Helicopter Approach
This was a flight up near Mount Monadnock in New Hampshire. Joe and I were doing some CFI training in the Robinson R-22, and were practicing ridgeline approaches at a (higher than usual) DA at a few thousand feet.
Pinnacle Helicopter Approach
This was another flight up near Mount Monadnock in New Hampshire. We were looking around for a good pinnacle. This was also some CFI work in the Robinson R-22
Practicing 720 autorotations up at Concord, New Hampshire in a Robinson R-44. These are fun to practice and could be useful in a situation where you were directly over your intended point of landing.
Full Touchdown Autorotations R-22
These were taken at the Lawrence Airport in one of our Robinson R-22's using an older head-cam.
All our videos were filmed from our own helicopters. Some of the videos are just fun shots, and some are good for training in certain situations. We welcome feedback on all of the videos - come in to the largest Boston helicopter school for more information.
