Four flights down, a lot more to go!
We practiced accelerating, decelerating, and ‘scanning’ this time. When driving a car you probably do things like change your radio station, heat, check how fast you’re going while also keeping your eyes on the road. It’s the same in a heli! You have to be looking out at what’s ahead while also keeping track of things like your speed, power, altitude...etc. 👀 Swipe left to see what I was looking at >>>>>
Five flights down and did some hovering after I snuck this selfie! I actually did pretty good for my first time 🙌🏻
Hovering in a heli is sort of like when you ride a bike as slow as possible. It’s easy to keep a bike balanced when you’re going fast because the bike does most of the work. But when you ride slowly, inch by inch, you have to work twice as hard using your muscles to keep the bike balanced and upright. Its hard!!
Its the same in a heli. When you hover you have to use all of your controls in unison to try and stay as balanced as possible. Both hands are doing things, with feet on the pedals! Very happy to say I was able to keep this ‘bike’ upright and balanced on my first hover lesson!
One step closer to my PPL! (Private Pilots License) 🤠
Me and my newest friend the R22 🚁
Did a loop around the city today and then came back to the grass to practice some more hovering, take-offs and landings. Really starting to feel like I’m getting the hang of it!
>>>>> 👀 Swipe for a video of me coming back to the hanger after doing some pretty good landings! ⚡️
Anyone want to shoot Tactical rifles out of helicopters? This is by far the best and coolest shooting experience I’ve EVER had. Thank you @californiatacticalacademy for working hard and making this possible .
