Becker Helicopters Principles and Methods of Instruction

This book presents the Principles and Methods of Instruction (PMI) for Helicopter Pilots based on the latest CASA CASR Part 61 requirements for Flight Instructors.

Written by Captain Mike Becker - one of Australia’s most experienced helicopter instructors with eighteen years experience and over 10,000 flight instructor hours. He has over 15,000 total flight hours, and is a recipient of the “Captain John Ashton Award for Flight Standards and Aviation Safety” by the Guild of Air Pilots and Air Navigators of London. Mike Becker started flying in 1984. His career has been as diverse as the number of helicopter types he has flown – the smaller R22 to the larger B212 and Sikorski S62, and most types in between. He has been operating a helicopter flight school since 1995. As Chief Pilot and Chief Flight Instructor, Mike operates a fleet of over 20 helicopters and employs more than 30 instructors delivering over 10,000 training hours per year.

This book converts all this experience into a full colour, practical, easy to great guide of over 100 pages.

With this book you will also receive a 35 page workbook of with assessment questions for each chapter, as well as 3 Assignments.

This is an essential resource for anyone seeking to complete a PMI course to become a Flight Instructor under the CASR Part 61 requirements.
