important skills for all helicopter pilots
The most important feature of a helicopters is the ability to land virtually everywhere, as long as the landing zone is big enough to fit the machine. however, to perform landings in small landing spots, so called confined areas, requires great pilot handling skills and the ability to asses all the risks during the approach as it is potentially very dangerous. This is one of the main reasons that pilots on air ambulance and mountain rescue helicopters are required to be highly skilled and experienced. In many European countries, for example the Netherlands, Germany, France and Denmark, it is very difficult to adequately exercise these skills. Aviation laws prohibit confined landings for training purposes, leaving only airports with lots of space as landing training areas. For all those pilots who want to perform safe confined landings and be in control and comfortable while doing so, we offer our confined area landing courses in Belgium and Switzerland. Both countries offer excellent training possibilities. These courses are very suitable for people in need of flight hours, you will learn lots and get a very good addition to your pilot CV!
