focuses on the operational planning for different helicopter missions including long line, ENG, EMS, law enforcement, and tour operations. The students then have to develop and pres- ent a plan(s) on what is necessary to run each type of operation from a practical standpoint; what resources are required, how do you staff, risk management considerations, etc. As part of an Embry-Riddle/Papillion “bridge” program,


students are exposed to Operations Specifications from a real world Part 135 operation.

the industry. It is broken up into four separate courses. State of the art classrooms enhance this learning experience. The first course in the series is “Environmental Helicopter


Operations”. In this course students obtain the foundation for helicopter operations in varying environmental conditions. The students are introduced to aspects particular to helicopter flight as it pertains to adverse weather including day, night, and Night Vision Goggle (NVG) operations. Emphasis is placed on understanding aeromedical principles as they per- tain to helicopter operations, personal and professional stress and fatigue issues, and flight considerations when operating in and around mountains, artic, jungle , desert, and overwater environments. The students also receive ground instruction on NVG operations in accordance with the ground training requirements outlined in FAR Part 61.31(k). Supporting Embry-Riddle on the NVG course is Night Flight Concept’s NVIO™ NVG Computer Based Training program. The second course in the series is “helicopter flight plan-


ning.” Flight planning using an E6B or handheld computer is not what this course is about; instead the student obtains the foundation for the FARs as they relate to aircraft certification, long line operations and aerial application. Additionally it


addition to supporting Embry-Riddle’s academic courses, the Embry-Riddle/Papillion “bridge” program provides student internships that can lead to a Professional Pilot position once prerequisite flight minimums are met.


Specifications Manual allows students to gain valuable knowl- edge which is very useful as they enter the job market.

The course also


addresses cargo planning for internal and/or external loads and communications procedures for internal and external operations. The third course in the series is “Advanced Helicopter


Systems and Functions”. The foundation for the first part of this course is Shawn Coyle’s book, “Cyclic & Collective”. During this course, students study the principles and func- tions of advanced helicopter systems with an emphasis on automatic flight control systems and associated pilot interface mechanisms, power and rotor systems, avionics, environmen- tal systems, and structures. Upon completing a general study of advanced systems theory, students then apply the general knowledge learned into an actual real world application using the MD 902 as the model. MD Helicopters supports this pro- gram by allowing students’ access to all MD technical and flight manuals. With a foundation set by using Coyle’s book, practical application using the MD 902 model offers students a unique understanding. MD further supports this course by hosting class field trips to the factory which allows their stud- ies to take on form and substance. Lastly the “Advanced Helicopter Systems and Functions” course is completed with the help of another EMBRY-RIDDLE
