Oldie but a goodie!

  • By Fred from Sutton MA USA on Tuesday, April 24, 2012
  • Pros: Very good information and lots of it! Well presented too!
  • Cons: Wish it was updates with new tech graphics..etc
  • Review: I have the original version of this when Matt Dragon was young ;-)! I decided to buy what I thought was the "updated" version you know the one with helicopters w/o peddles. Anyways while its really not an updated version (except Matt Dragon is now old) I still very much enjoy the DVD.
    While there are not many Heli training videos out there actually I think its this one and Sporty's. Which is now at least 3 videos as their update cut up a DVD into 3 DVDs and and they are all priced individually now... not good! Come'on Sporty's flying cost enough but your SH*T has got to stop!
    Anyways I highly recommend this DVD its a great learning tool not only for your written test but it also provides great insight to actual maneuvers!

    I make a point of watching this once a month just to keep my brain up to date on Helicopter aerodynamics.

Very informative, easy to understand

  • By Jonathan from Greenville SC USA on Monday, September 19, 2011
  • Pros: Great overview
  • Cons: Could use more detail pertaining to certain helicopter operations
  • Review: The graphics and actual flying demonstrations made the different principals and characteristics of helicopter flying easy to understand and comprehend. Would have liked to have seen more startup procedures, and more description and explanation of autorotations, rotor speed control etc.

Would recommend

  • By Edwin from Chehalis WA USA on Monday, March 18, 2013
  • Review: I am encouraging a young friend of mine to consider rotors.
    I went through Army pilot training in 1964 and found the dvd very good basics. Hopefully they will at least get a Private rating before entering the military.
