I am currently working on my PPL Helicopter and I wanted to share a video of my 12th hour of instruction. This is toward the end of the flight where I was practicing some power recovery autos. I am still nervous doing them, but I am getting more comfortable each time.

Enjoy.

I always figured
the instructors would tell you how to auto and then say

"You on your own, best of luck.

Your not risking my life in case you screw up."

I was just thinking the same exact thing when I watched it.

lol,
If that's how it was done I suspect they would be buying a new heli every few weeks.

This is truly the most challenging thing that I have ever done. It is also very rewarding. I remember my first hour saying " Damn this is a twitchy M-@#!$$!" and saying "I will never get it" and now I am hovering like a boss, taking off, patterns and normal landings.

I am just glad that I have a good instructor.

Keep practicing, it gets easier, if you can auto a Robbie you'll be able to auto about anything.

I started in R-22's back in 1998...flying EMS in a EC-135 now. The 135 flies itself, I miss the Robinson and simplicity and pure fun of it...but having two engines now is pretty sweet

When in doubt...auto out

Wow! Nice... now that is a real helicopter. You are living the dream brother. I would love to get my hands on that. Thanks 500driver. I took some vacation time from work this week to get in some consecutive flights and it seems to be helping. I should be ready for solo endorsement soon.

...keep flying it 'till the last part stops moving
