Art is a very experienced fixed wing ATP and added private helicopter onto his certificate, using the Enstrom. He had accumulated quite a bit of R44 dual instruction and was a partner in the ownership of one. His partner would take the aircraft away for months at a time, inturrupting Art's progress. We convinced him it was time to buckle down and finish in the Enstrom.
There are some differences in the two helicopters, the big one being the throttle control inputs that the pilot must make in the Enstrom. Chief Pilot Gary Cleveland worked with him one full week, doing a combination of flying and ground instruction each day. At the end of a week of hard work, Art was able to pass his check ride and was issued a temporary certificate with his added rating.

Helicopter Online Ground School was founded by Kenny Keller in 2012. He is the author of "Helicopter Check-Ride", which made Amazon #1 best seller upon release. His online video courses include Private Pilot, Commercial Pilot, Certified Flight Instructor, and Instrument Pilot. Kenny recognized a lack of quality ground training within the industry and has created a video learning platform to compliment any part 61 or 141 flight school program.
All four of these courses are FAA approved for WINGS and appear on the FAA safety website as approved online courses.
The Certified Flight Instructor membership includes access to all of the Private Pilot and Commercial Pilot videos as well, giving the Certified Flight Instructor membership over 40 hours of video to watch. The courses include information on all subject areas, to include the fundamentals of instructing.
Each course includes both practice written test questions and oral check ride questions.
Members have access to a closed Facebook group to network.
