SFAR 73 Awareness Training

SFAR 73 or Special Federal Aviation Regulation 73 deals with the special training and experience requirements for anyone operating a Robinson R22 or R44 helicopter. The Awareness Training is just part of that regulation.

The SFAR 73 Awareness Training covers energy management, low RPM leading to rotor stall and low G hazards leading to mast bumping. The training is required before anyone can manipulate the controls of an R22/R44.
