412driver Posted October 16, 2006 Report Share Posted October 16, 2006 i sure hope so and make sure you do. REMEMBER, you are the customer and can demand it. i remember talking to a student that was on R22's, he was half way through his course, had gone solo numerous times and had NEVER done a full on :shock: he said it had been "shown" to him i asked him who would "show" him if the engine quit on a solo???? i know for a fact that our students as well as students at the schools that run 47's all do ALOT of full ons BEFORE you solo. there is a reason for that because when you are solo, we aren't beside you if the engine quits i do not let my students out alone until i am assured that if the machine goes "poopy" they will drop the collective at the top and pull it up at the right time at the bottom. this should go without saying........ i'm reading that you are at around 10-15 hours??? i soloed at (lucky) 13 hours so you must be pretty darn close......... sorry i am so vocal about this but i am sure the other instructors on this site would back me up............
