What Flight School Did You Get Your Licence At?

Recommended Posts

Gateway Helicopters at Canadore College... graduated in March 2007. I did 50 hours on the 300 and 50 hours on the JetRanger.

 

Instructors: Lavern Ross CFI, Andy Brunet, and Marianne Cyr.

 

Good times but we had 13 students. Way too many.

 

Marianne Cyr was my instructor too!

basically once your engine fails...you have about 3 seconds to put the machine into auto rotation before the inertia runs out. Your aircrafts rotor then loses its flight and lift characteristics and becomes practically unrecoverable.

I couldnt say if this is true or not but thats what ive heard.

actually, I believe the number is closer to 1.25 seconds to get the collective down!!!

Experience, experience, and more experience. Some (working here) would debate, if its the ultimate job.....but again, its what you make of it :rolleyes:

 

Seriously though, you will defenitely need twin experience along with lots of vertical reference time.....the lowest time pilot we hired on this side of the border had/has over 7,600 hrs with 5,000 of that logging on mediums prior......he was/is an exceptional lower time pilot. Most of the guys here are in the 15,000 to 20,000 hr range.

Cheers, H56
