Confined areas are the culmination of all your flying. Helicopters are made to land in confined areas. However, confined area take-offs and landings require proper planning and strict adherence to procedures.
When is the last time you did a power check before approaching a confined area? Do you know how to do a power check for your type of helicopter? When is the last time you looked at the performance section of the helicopter flight manual?
Experience flying into proper confined areas. Learn the procedures to use, how to assess the wind speed and direction, how to do a power check and how to pre-plan your flight. Learn how to assess the site and do a safe approach and departure out of a confined area.
This course will give you numerous examples of confined areas each with different hazards.
