Download: Manual at EASA, General Publication - 16/10/2017

Foreword of manual:
One of the important ingredients for a safe and viable aviation industry is a properly resourced flying training sector.Some of these resources can be quite fundamental. For example, an important contribution to training is for flying instructors to have available to them a basic guide to elementary flying training.
In response to this need, the European Helicopter Safety Team (EHEST) contacted the Australian Government Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) which was known to have developed a flying instructors' guide based on extensive feedback from the helicopter training industry. CASA kindly made this guide freely available to the EHEST team for dissemination.

Some changes were incorporated to reflect European terminology and syllabus content. In this, the second issue of the guide, further changes have been made to bring Part 1 in line with the requirements of AMC1 FCL.920 - Instructor competencies and assessment and the Teaching and Learning (Instructional Techniques) syllabus as set out in AMC1 FCL.930 - FI Training course.

In Part 2, air exercise objectives have been included for all the flying exercises and labeled lesson checklist. Other changes have been incorporated and sections re-written as a result of suggestions received following publication of Issue 1.

Important Notice. The EHEST was formally closed on October 2016 and its activity functionally transferred to other teams in the European Safety Risk Management (SRM) system. Readers are encouraged to provide feedback to ensure that any further versions meet industry needs. You can email your feedback to us at:
