Daz Posted December 15, 2007 Report Share Posted December 15, 2007 Ok, so I'm a short-arse. Like 5'3" in my socks... It's my understanding that the Robinson R22 (seems to be the trainer of choice at the schools I'm looking at) doesn't have adjustable pedals or seat. Will I need blocks on the pedals? Kidding aside, I've heard of shorter pilots using a back cushion to give 'em a little extra reach. Is this feasible? FWIW, I've operated a lot of vehicles and equipment - not all of which were very accomodating for someone of my (lack of) height, and I've always found a way to do it comfortably and safely. However, I can understand that proper fit - in terms of being able to operate the pedals through their full range - is more crucial in a helicopter than in, say, a snowcat. In short (heh!), I'm adaptable. But I'd like to hear your thoughts! Cheers, Darren Burt Invermere, BC Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
