Advanced Helicopter Systems and Functions
3
During this course, the student will study the principles and functions of advanced helicopter systems with an emphasis on automatic flight control systems and associated pilot interface mechanisms, power and rotor systems, avionics, environmental systems and structures.

The course is designed to introduce the student to automatic and electronic flight control systems, and their useful application in support of VRF and IFR Flight Planning to include departures, en route navigation, and arrivals.

Upon course completion, students will be able to:1. Explain the basic flight control components and systems required for helicopter flight operation.2. Compare advancements in helicopter main rotor and anti-torque systems.3. Critique and evaluate advancements in helicopter power plants4. Interpret the functions of helicopter pilot interface systems.5. Understand advancements in helicopter avionics and navigation systems.6. Understand the principles of Automatic Flight Control Systems and components and correlate their functions with the Flight Management Systems and coupled flight.7. Compare and contrast new airframe technologies, materials, and manufacturing techniques.8. Explain future concepts of helicopter systems such as autonomous or remotely piloted helicopters.9. Collaborate effectively as a group to determine the appropriate advanced systems and functions for new helicopter development.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:

12. Demonstrate operations and pre-flight planning and applications specific to areas discussed.

13. 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.
