Another great two-program DVD from Sporty's® takes your helicopter flying to the next level.

In Advanced Helicopter Flying, Hall of Fame helicopter instructor Don Fairbanks takes you into the world of commercial helicopter operations and demonstrates helicopter flight in hostile terrain such as snow, ice, high grass, water, etc. Our cameras put you at the controls of the popular R22 as well as many of the larger helicopters such as the Bell 222—which demonstrates flight in instrument conditions. See flight performance profiles of military helicopters as well as those flown by many Fortune 500 companies, including Sikorsky, Agusta and McDonnell Douglas. Explore the latest technologies and operational considerations of turbine engines, stability augmentations systems, GPS, tilt rotor and tilt wing equipment, sling loads and more. Also includes regulations for the commercial helicopter certificate.

Advanced Helicopter Cross-Country puts this knowledge to use. You'll be in the Agusta A109C to visit downtown heliports in New York and Philadelphia as well as the Westchester County Airport (HPN) in White Plains, NY—one of the busiest general aviation airports in the world. You'll also ride along on a ferry flight in the A109C to Phoenix, AZ. Covers the unique operational considerations of both urban and rural helicopter flying as you cross over the Continental Divide and the desert Southwest. (3 hrs. 10 min.)

Outside the United States? - Sporty's DVDs have all DVD regions enabled and play on almost all DVD players (NTSC or PAL); consult your owner's manual for more information.

Pros: This DVD gives good insight into cross country helicopter flying. Cons: More examples of cross country flying would have made this DVD better. This DVD was a good purchase and addition to my aviation library.

Pros: While the Advanced section was dtaed (Rob looks to be 24 years old;-)! The info contained is still the same as far as the aerodymanic principals go. All in all it was well done andn has nice graphics. Cons: The coss country was not what I expected. I have sever al Sportys videos on fixed wing training andn their XCountry was technically based. This video was more of a joy ride between east coast (NYC) Heliports and airport as well as a nice flying piece out west. Since this is a "Training" video I was looking more for the use of Helicopter specific charts and route planning for a XC at lease the differences between Helicopter and fixed wing considerations for planning. While I'm giving this a recommendation I strongly suggest if its available purchasing teh Advanced video sepetately. As stated above the XC has no training value.
