  1. Is it normal for the helicopter with CCW rotating main rotors (2 bladed), to pitch down and roll left in forward flight, when force trim is turned off and hands off the cyclic? Moreover, when we put the helicopter in right bank, would it tend to return to straight & level / left bank after a few seconds when hands off the cyclic (force trim off)? By forward flight I mean 80 to 100 kts
  2. While reading about aviation today (a pretty common occurrence since starting my WOFT packet) I came across some articles about the Future Vertical Lift (FVT) program. I was just curious to hear what current Aviators out there think about it as well as the proposed V-280 Valor and SB-1 Defiant airframes that are competing for a spot to supply the military. Any thoughts on how this would change the world of Army aviation? Pros/Cons and Likes/Dislikes? What this means for applicants just beginning to enter the WOFT pipeline?
  3. Time building opportunity for the right person. We are going to be bringing a Bell 206L from California to New York in October. Excellent chance for some turbine time with a CFI at R44 prices. Contact Adam at aventura191@gmail.com with your contact info and current Ratings held.
  4. Now that I can no longer fly for fun, it seems that if I ever want to fly again, I have to get hired to do so,...which sucks balls 'cause I really don't want a flying career anymore! I would actually love to take this job, a part-time flying gig sounds great, but $10-$15 bucks a day! Even when I had just one months experience driving a semi I was able to get a part-time job driving one just four hours a day for $100 bucks a day! I realise R44 tour operations aren't huge money makers and entry level pilots have to pay their dues and all, but we should be worth more than a burger flipper
  5. Hi all, I am currently finishing my last semester of undergrad in Louisiana. My recruiter told me one of my LOR absolutely has to come from a pilot. I have no pilot contacts. How should I got about getting this LOR. Can I show up on a base and start asking around? Can I call someone? Thank you for the help, AH
  6. http://scihi.org/rotary-plane-engelbert-zaschka/ On June 19, 1926, German engineer, designer aviation pioneer Engelbert Zaschka filed a patent on his “Hubschraubenflugzeug” (Zaschka Rotary-Wing Airplane), a predecessor of today’s helicopter. He also constructed a large human-powered aircraft and produced some interesting unorthodox designs for automobils and motorcycles. Engelbert Zaschka grew up in a family of musucians. His father taught music and was part of the Freiburg city orchestra and his mother was a singer. However, Zaschka went in a different direction. Already at the age of
  7. Good day, As part of my bachelor's degree, I will be conducting a research at a company who is looking to investing in a new helicopter or sim. I will, for example, look at the current market in the region and in which market there is a demand for which kind of operation etc. I was wondering if there was applicable literature or information which I could consult during this research. If you personally have factors or subquestions in mind that I could use during this research, suggestion are always welcome. Thanks in advance. Kind regards
  8. Hello all, I am currently a SPC in the NG as a 15p. I have a 69 SIFT and a 350 APFT, and I'm a Private Pilot working on my next fixed wing ratings. I am on the last step for NG applicants in which I undergo a final interview with the CCWO and a SAO. My 350 APFT was not taken for record, and before I took another one for the board, I sustained a foot injury in marathon training in which I have been unable to run for 5 months. Does anyone know, is an alternate event (such as the 6.2 mi bike), authorized for submitting a WOFT app? Or, any thoughts on WOFT or college first? (I am a college
  9. There aren't that many active posters on here anymore, but there are a lot of lookie-looz, so maybe a poll can get some of you more "anonymous" members to participate? So, Rotorcraft Pro says its here, Vertical Mag says its here, and now ROTOR Mag confirmed it,... THE PILOT SHORTAGE IS HERE!!! So, as a low-timer, do you feel optimistic now, or are you still stuck in that entry-level black hole crying out, HEY, YOU FORGOT ABOUT ME DOWN HERE! In ROTOR they mentioned that they want to have a "round table discussion" on how to create a sustainable workforce in this industry, and of course
  10. I'm looking for some quality books/material that goes beyond what a pilot has to know. I'm hoping for something that would answer questions such as: Why is the tail rotor the diameter it is? The whys and the hows of rotor blade fatigue. Anything remotely related to the engineering side of things would be good.
  11. Ive always dreamed of being a pilot I just turned 18 and graduated high school 4 months early moved out of my small hopeless town in with my aunt just got my first job which pays 27k a year not including $0.50 raises every 6 months an no overtime which is in high demand at work. Even today at 18 years old I still run outside at the sound of something flying over but mainly helicopters as I like their versatility over fixed wing planes. I could use some guidance on starting my flight career. I see two options hopefully you guys can open up some more options or elaborate or give insight on my o
  12. First post. I am still in high school and I found the woft program. It seems to fit my needs perfectly. Except the slight problems like sight.. but that will be handled with Lasik when the time comes. Pt, I'm working on it. But my question is about hearing. The last hearing test I had with local physicians turned out to be just a hair under average, and said to be careful not to damage my hearing anymore for the army and stuff. The question is, are the hearing restrictions strict? What are they anyway? How is hearing tested in the army and in flight physicals? If you score too low is it possib
  13. #1 A small rotor is operating at high rpm and or pitch with a high downwash velocity, #2 or a larger rotor is operating at lower rpm with lower downwash velocity. So the answer from my book is the rotor with greater induced velocity will require the most horsepower. since the larger rotor blade creates less downwash velocity does that mean it creates less induced velocity? So in practical terms what's more efficient a UH 1 high aspect ratio or small narrow rotors with greater numbers like an MD500. Note that this is not stuff required for the FAA exam, just additional knowledge. The FAA stuff
  14. Just found out about this interesting Chinese variant of the MQ-8 Fire scout UAV helicopter, one thing I notice is the strange rotorhub. Anybody have any details on this interesting helo? Look closely at the MQ-8 Fire scout compared to the Chinese SVU-200 Rotor hub design, if you look closely it has no pitch links, I think they're hidden inside the shaft, like the swiss marenco helicopter. Very interesting
  15. Hi, I am doing some research for a training video on airfoils used on training helicopters (main and tail rotors). The emphasis is on Robinson helicopters, but I'd appreciate help from people with Enstrom & Schweizer experience. Robinson R22/R44 Main = Symmetrical, Tail = Asymmetrical Hughes/Schweizer Main = ???, Tail = ??? Enstrom Flacon/Shark Main = ???, Tail = ??? Any other small training helicopter? Many thanks for your time, Regards, J
  16. Hello everyone, I'm a new member on this group. Looks like a great forum. I need some help. I wish to become a helicopter pilot and would really appreciate your guidance. (background:I'm in my second last year of engineering from India) I had the following few questions in this regard: Your help is much appreciated.  Which country has the best institutes for helicopter training?  Among the institutes in the recommended country which are ranked on the top?  Which helicopter should one train on?  Which is the best terrain for helicopter training?  Are there any special requirements for
  17. Is anyone taking their Class 1A flight physical anytime soon? If so, will you ask the doctor if they accept retained orthopedic hardware in the foot? I heard from what I believe is a credible source that they will not accept anyone with retained hardware. From where I am in the process, it will be a few months before I can get a flight physical. I am considering just going ahead and having my hardware removed. From a time perspective, it makes sense to me to go ahead and have it removed now, rather than wait a few months to be told I have to have it removed. There is a 6 month waiting period
  18. Looking to lease an R44 helicopter as soon as possible and can offer 300 plus flight hours in 3 months. Looking for a dry lease. If you know anyone interested please let me know. Or if you have any suggestions they will be greatly appreciated!
  19. Today marks the 8-year anniversary of when I got my commercial rating and with 400 hours began looking for work as a pilot (after several attempts I came to the conclusion that I being a teacher wasn’t going to work out, and thus am not a CFI). Just a month later I got my first interview. It was showing clients real estate that was for sale in Myrtle Beach from an R-44. Just 2 days a week, $400 bucks a month, but I lost out to a CFI. Anyway, 6 years later (2 years ago) having gotten no other interviews (I used to come here a lot and bitch about that, among other things, but now I just
  20. Hello there! long time reader but first time poster. I am in the middle of putting together my civilian packet for WOFT/WOCS and am having a hard time finding a CWO3+ to request an interview (I've heard this is a fairly common practice) for a LOR since I don't have much in terms of a military network. I figure, I could throw the feelers out there to see if anyone in the CONUS would be willing to have me come travel (anywhere but alaska, too expensive) to you for a face to face, heart to heart discussion. :-) I'll buy you a beer or a coffee and see if you find me to be one of the many dreamer
  21. Dear colleagues, I write this post to ask you your opinion about a couple of questions related with an helicopter crash happened in 1989, in the sea, a few miles of the coastline of Roquetas de Mar town, province of Almeria (Spain).
