PPL(H) Flight Exercises

This table lists all the exercises required by JAR FCL-2 for the PPL(H).
The exercises are not necessarily covered in order during your flying training.
Often the weather will necessitate remaining on the airfield and this is were we see the advantage over fixed wing training, in that during periods of adverse weather some of the exercises can be carried out quite safely without leaving the airfield.
