kevin Posted December 11, 2006 Report Share Posted December 11, 2006 I am Premier Helicopter Trainings first student from zero hours to flight test completion. I started training at Premier last January, broke my leg in May and was unable to fly for 4 months. In september I started flying again and yesterday I did my flight test at 79 Hrs. In the next 20 hours Rob is going to put me through additional operational training incorperating long lining and a Bell 206 indorsement. The Bell 47 G4 that Premeirs uses for flight traing is without question the best trainer. With full fuel and two 200lbs people the G4 will hover out of ground effect at 6000ft. The BH 47 teaches excellent power management with the requirement for the pliot to assist the correlator to maintain RPM with the throttle. Premiers on board video recording is such a powerful teaching tool. The student leaves each flight with a DVD of the flight. A student can carefully breakdown each flight. Premeirs greatest asset is Mr. Rob Wood. Rob has spent so much time with us on the ground. He covers such wide array of material. We have covered all the basic Nav, Met, CARs, theory of flight but additioally; flight mamuals (including the BH 47, BH 206, EC 120 and AS 350), Aerodynaimics (including Power Point Presentations), MCM, MPM, Journey Logs, Tech Logs, AD's, MSB, SB, go into great detail of the weather and the list continues to grow........ Rob takes us out and sets up a stagging area with additional fuel and each student gets a chance to do each ground crew job and than has the oppertunity to sling or longline loads from the stagging area and shoot approaches back in. If a student shows interest in learning at Premier, there is no limit to the amount they are going to learn. I can't thank Rob enough for the time he has spent with us, ensuring we are well rounded safe individuals to enter the industry. I highly recommend training at Premier Helicopter Training.
