It’s not something to be taken lightly… the final big test before pilots get their PPL(H) licence. Not that this thought seemed to stress Ollie and Chris ahead of the all-important helicopter PPL(H) Skills Test!
It’s the moment that months of hard work leads up to. The chance to be put through your paces during a two-hour flight examination, which covers fundamental areas which are so crucial to flying a helicopter. From the navigation section, which includes navigating using a variety of methods, such as an OS map and the 1:250,000 aviation chart, to instrument flying, to general handling, which includes autorotations and emergency procedures.
We are delighted to say that Ollie and Chris came through this tough challenge. And, to mark the occasion, the traditional pilots jacket was soon off its hangar and presented to our high-flying students. A big ‘well done’ from everyone at Central Helicopters.
There’s no better place to train for your PPL(H) licence than with Central Helicopters. Find out more and talk to our team on 01664 823 846.
