This is the sixteenth training flight in a series following a student through his flight training from day 1 to checkride in an R22.
Due to flying with one door off, the airflow creates some extra noise, which means some interference in the audio in some parts of the video.
This is it – the big day, the first time a student flies without an instructor onboard (helicopter solo). This version of that flight is just the solo portion but has the external photos and video added.
NOTE radio calls are hard to hear when student is flying solo due to the microphone being in the instructor’s headset.
Also watch the original lesson (with no external video and photos) which included a demo of steep approach.
