Normal Takeoff & Demo of Transverse Flow Effect & ELT – Helicopter Flight Maneuvers

This is a reference video of unedited footage from inside the cockpit during a normal take off in an R22 helicopter. Also some demonstrations of why we get a left yaw, roll right and nose up – Translational Lift, Translational Thrust, Transverse Flow Effect (TFE) & Effective Translational Lift (ETL).

This video was produced for a presentation to aviation students at COCC. I thought the video may be useful to others, but In time these videos will be replaced by a more comprehensive instructional videos with key points, common errors and the PTS requirements.

Thanks to Jeff & Keaton
