This training will ONLY talk about the basics of transport helicopter usage.
Topics covered in this training will include:
- Basic maneuvers
- Basic Take-offs and landings
- Flight speed and altitude management
- Basic communication and command hierarchy
- Basic sling loading
- Emergency procedures theory (if time allows)
It's planned to last less than 2 hours (120 minutes). If stuff is getting in the way (or the attendees want to train a specific part more in depth) it will last longer.
Please make sure you are at least somewhat familiar with the mouse / keyboard (or joystick) layout of flying a helicopter. (What makes you go up what makes you go down etc...) The following video is a good starting point for somebody who has no idea where to start and how to bind their keybinds. This is obviously just a suggestion! Find a setup that is comfortable for you!
Taking part in this training DOES NOT give you any priority during slotting.
RSVP Regulars have priority, FNG's may be able to join if there are not enough Regs+. If you are a FNG do not RSVP. Just write a comment that you would like to take part.
We are limiting the RSVP to 8 people but most of the time not everybody who RSVP'ed shows up. Feel free to just be there at the time and you probably will be able to get in. (This includes FNGs ... just be there on time and more often than not we will include you into the training.)
Be sensible, an amount of extreme fuckery (completely unnecessary or unrelated crashes, stupid delays due to not paying attention .etc.) will get you kicked out of the training, possibly even with a ban, and maybe even a ban from further trainings.
