OEM TRAINING SNAPSHOT-Bell Training Academy 2.0

Posted by Admin

The fuselage was made partly of plywood beams. The tail cone was made of riveted magnesium. The rotor blades were a composite of fir and balsa wood, with a steel reinforcement bar down the leading edge. Powered by a vertically mounted 165-hp Franklin engine, Bell’s first helicopter, the Model 30, first flew in 1942. Advancing technology is the double-edged sword in aviation. On one hand, technology improvements make us more efficient and situationally aware. On the other hand, just when you thought you were proficient using one technology, it changes. This tension is a boon for training providers, as they are always in demand to provide initial and recurrent training programs. [Read More...]

How GI Bill Benefits Help Veterans Take the Next Step in Their Careers

Posted by Admin

Transitioning from the military to college can be challenging, at least it was for me. After completing my military service, I struggled with getting started on the next step toward fulfilling my education goals. I first enrolled in an online program, but the courses did not really interest me. I soon discovered that without excitement about the subject matter there was no motivation to continue. The only thing I was certain about is that I didn’t want to become one of those statistics about military veterans who don’t use their GI Bill benefits. [Read More...]

Helicopter Pilot Kidnapped - Twice!

Posted by Admin

Three huge Nigerians rushed forward and mobbed Dave. A sack was pulled over his head and he was bundled quickly away from the bar and into a waiting minivan. One of the Nigerians began wildly firing his AK above the heads of the others as a warning to stay back and Dave found out later that the guard outside the bar had been held at gunpoint while they made their abduction. The whole thing was over in less than a minute and Dave was now being driven at speed away from the township, and was getting a few punches and kicks from his captors as they showed they meant business.

Meet a Rotorcraft Pro – Matt Zuccaro

Posted by Admin

My very first flight was in a fixed-wing, a J-3 Cub, as a 13-year old Civil Air Patrol cadet. My first helicopter flight was in a Hiller OH-23 Ravenas a 19-year old Army Warrant Officer Candidate at Fort Wolters, Texas. Although both flights were unbelievably exciting, the more memorablewas the Hiller OH-23, mostly due to my inability to maintain any level of control over the aircraft. [Read More...]
