During this course, the student obtains the foundation for FARs as they relate to flight planning and navigation for various operations. The student will be able to use regulatory and operational considerations used in helicopter flight operations. Remote location operations and low level flight and navigation procedures will be studied closely. Cargo planning for internal and external operations nodes during near-ground operations will be discussed. By the end of the course, the student will have sufficient knowledge to understand the concepts necessary for effective flight planning and operation in the commercial helicopter industry.

This course provides the basic knowledge and skills to establish a firm foundation for a career as a professional helicopter pilot through the basic understanding of planning of commercial helicopter flight operations. The emphasis placed on ground and air operations will better prepare the student for progression in helicopter operations.

Upon course completion, students will be able to1. Describe FAR’s as they relate to civil helicopter operations in various types of industry segments.2. Analyze the extensiveness of operational uses of the helicopter.3. Demonstrate knowledge in utilizing manual and digital mapping for use in planning low-level flight.4. Explain the uses of low level navigation by manual or electronic means (GPS) and how it can be used in various operational scenarios.5. Summarize flight and ground communication planning considerations for various helicopter mission profiles.6. Discuss aircraft and human capabilities and limitations associated with helicopter operations.7. Analyze examples of safety issues and emergency procedures when planning helicopter operations.8. Present flight operations planning and aeronautical decision making considerations for various operational scenarios.9. Apply flight planning concepts for helicopter operations.10. Demonstrate appropriate selection and application of a research method and statistical analysis (where required), specific to the course subject matter.

Upon course completion, students will be able to

1. Describe FAR’s as they relate to commercial helicopter operations in various types of operation such as long line and agriculture.

2. Discuss the concepts of terrain flight navigation.

2. Demonstrate knowledge in utilizing small scale topographic maps for terrain flight.

4. Explain the uses of low level navigation by manual or electronic means (GPS) and how it can be used in various operational scenarios.

5. Summarize flight and ground communication planning considerations for internal and/or external load operations.

6. Explain the typical search patterns used in planning for helicopter search and rescue operations.

7. Demonstrate examples of safety issues and emergency procedures when planning for specialized flight operations.

8. Present flight operations planning and aeronautical decision making considerations for various operational scenarios.

9. Apply the flight planning principles for low level cross country navigation.

10. Explain the concepts of pre-mission planning requirements for internal and external loads.

11. Demonstrate improvement in public speaking skills.

12. Demonstrate appropriate selection and application of a research method and statistical analysis (where required), specific to the course subject matter. (Effective July 1, 2013)

Located on the Daytona Beach Campus, the Jack R. Hunt Library is the primary library for all students of the Worldwide Campus. The Chief Academic Officer strongly recommends that every faculty member, where appropriate, require all students in his or her classes to access the Hunt Library or a comparable college-level local library for research. The results of this research can be used for class projects such as research papers, group discussion, or individual presentations. Students should feel comfortable with using the resources of the library.
