Zero Speed Autorotation with 360 degree turn – Helicopter Flight Maneuvers

This is a reference video of unedited footage from inside the cockpit during Zero Speed Autorotation with 360 degree turn in an R22 helicopter.

This maneuver itself is not required for Private or Commercial ratings, but maybe considered for ‘Enhanced training in autorotation procedures’ under SFAR 73, especially for a CFI SFAR 73 checkride. Otherwise it is good training to help a student become more confident and accomplished in autorotations generally and serves a real world purpose for possible engine failure in an out of ground effect hover over an confined area.

Confined Area Off Airport – Helicopter Flight Maneuvers

This is a reference video of unedited footage from inside the cockpit during a confined area off airport in an R22 helicopter.

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.
