New FAA Helicopter Flying Handbook


Recommended Posts

Here is the latest eddition of the FAA Helicopter Flying Handbook. Just came out on the 6th. I have not been able to read it yet so I am unsure of what changes have been made to it.

Cool, I had been waiting for this for a while. Hopefully there are fewer typos in this one. So does this mean gyroplanes will have their own handbook now?

Just so everyone knows... The test questions for exams taken before Nov 1st still come from the old Rotorcraft Flying Handbook.

 

We are scrambling to get the Audiobook for the new version done before November so those of you studying for exams and check rides after Nov 1st can use the audiobook to help you study! You can follow our progress on our blog at aviationaudiobooks.com

 

I haven't seen a print version for sale yet. My print version was done on a laser printer. Punch holes, put it in a binder... Instant gratification :)

 

Gyroplanes are now in the Gyroplane Flying Handbook FAA-8083-16

Can you believe it... there is already an ERATA listing for the new book, two corrections so far.

 

One of the corrections pertains to what I just told you all a minute ago. They accidentally printed the wrong number for the Gyroplane Flying Handbook in the Preface... it is actually FAA-8083-35

 

Here is the other error so far reported by the FAA:

 

 

Page G-4, 3rd entry, “Lead and flag” should be “Lead and lag.”

To All,

 

Finally an updated ADM Chapter. All of the airplane PTSs now include SRM evaluations of the certificate applicants. Rotorcraft IFR & CFII PTSs currently have the SRM areas and the Private, Commercial and CFI Rotorcraft Helicopter PTSs will include SRM areas at next revision (coming soon).

 

Flight schools & CFIs should be preparing pilots in training for the changes as the FAA has an evaluation of DPEs going on currently to evaluate how they are performing check rides in these areas and how they are using the judgment matrix. (View in IFR PTS)

 

Many current 141 programs offer a one hour ADM ground lesson at Stage 4 in prep for the check ride. Clearly this is not sufficient. ADM/SRM needs to be taught early on in training programs and built as a head work skill to produce pilots that assess Risks continually.

Alright, I just got off the phone with the local Aviator's Store. They called ASA and this is what ASA told them:

 

The new FAA Helicopter Flying Handbook will NOT be in print (at least by ASA) anytime soon. They are thinking Fall at the earliest. This is because the version linked above and released on 6 May is not the final version and there will be an update to it "very soon." Then, and only then, will ASA begin working on printing and distributing the new FAA HFH.

 

Might be time for a trip to Kinko's.

Love it. Why bother to proof it, just put it on the internet and let the monkeys do it.
