- A CRITICAL ASSET WHEN APPLYING FOR PILOT EMPLOYMENT
- A BEST WAY TO LEARN ABOUT A HELICOPTER PILOT'S LIFE
THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS COURSE IS TO PROVIDE PRE-PILOTS, STUDENT PILOTS, ACTIVE PILOTS
AT ANY LEVEL OF EXPERIENCE WITH A DIVERSITY OF OPERATIONS INFORMATION. NOTHING IN THIS COURSE SHOULD BE REGARDED AS ELEMENTARY. HIGH-TIME PILOTS ALWAYS PROFIT FROM REVIEW, REMINDERS AND NEW IDEAS.
THE COURSE IS MEANT TO:
1. - PROVIDE PILOT FLIGHT OPERATIONS KNOWLEDGE "WITHOUT RISK" ESPECIALLY IN AREAS NOT NORMALLY WELL COVERED IN FLIGHT SCHOOL, OR DURING EMPLOYER PILOT PROFICIENCY TRAINING.
2 - ASSIST EMPLOYERS IN MAINTAINING PILOT PERFORMANCE STANDARDS.
3 - PREPARE PILOTS TO BE MORE ATTRACTIVE FOR EMPLOYMENT.
THE COURSE IS DESIGNED to encourage pilots to REGULARLY ANALYSE their work procedures, attitude, depth of knowledge, self-discipline, flight control standards and personal relationships in light of the enormous responsibility entrusted to them,and the unique privileges granted by their pilot licence.
PILOT EXPERIENCE determines the outcome of pilot decisions. Efficient transition to better operations decision-making necessarily includes benefiting from the vast store of knowledge available from other pilots - the type of knowledge and exposure promoted in this Manual and Course. Obviously and necessarily, pilot operations proficiency skill includes self-control skill, organizational skill, safety awareness skill, piloting skill, public relations skill, business-like work-management skill. Most of these vital subjects are not addressed to any great extent in flight school training or in an employer's pilot proficiency training. See Menu item "EXPERIENCE WITHOUT RISK" for most subjects.

The major portion of this Course consists of information chief pilots can mistakenly assume is common knowledge to all staff pilots - it ain't necessarily so. Experience reveals: Pilots often need reminders of what they already know, should know, have forgotten, or have insufficiently appreciated. The material in this Course is also meant to assist chief pilots
with their heavy duty responsibility with pilot standards. (The aviation insurance community has expressed interest in
the potential value of this Course). And then consider that confronting pilots with shortcomings can be rather delicate.
