Radd's School of Rotary Flight

by Bert Van Kets

This virtual flight school has been created to give novice pilots all the info they need to quickly get up to speed and not lose time and money on doing things the wrong way. It's a completely voluntarily work by many people from all over the world. Make sure to check out the contributors page and if you feel there is info missing, don't be shy to write something yourself and contribute.

What is the goal of this?

As many people struggle with the technical aspect of getting thier heli put together and getting it into the air, I thought it was not a bad idea to put my findings into electronic form and put it online. Buying an ECO after 20 years of flying planks got me into the Ikarus BBS. I got to know many very interesting and knowledgable people there and got into building this site when a member, called Radd, suggested of starting a flight school. I jumped on the occation and soon afterwards got the basics for this site started. Many regulars of the Ikarus BBS have made contributions and still do so. Every one of them is an expert in their field, which is a guarantee for the valitdity of the information. In time I'm sure this site will contain so much material there won't be any need any more to obtain online degrees or buy books on helicopters. :-)

If everybody adds his findings into this collection, the amount of info will grow, so more and more people will get help from it. If you want to help out, jut type out what you think people will like and contribute.

Thanks for sharing, people.
