    #293 There is no right way - Coffee With Kenny Day 293 Coffee with Kenny! Special edition CWK today. Bottom line, when it comes to helicopter training and the route that you take, it comes down to what is best for you!

Your family and your personal well being and your finances should be number one.

    #292 "any particular helicopter that’s in a higher demand for pilots?" Welcome to day 292 Coffee with Kenny! Today I have a great question! From a member currently training in an R-22 and asks if I knew of any particular helicopter that is in demand more than another. First off, Robinson Helicopters are the most popular helicopters in demand, weather you love them or hate them. You do need to research this a little bit, because there are good reasons to get flight time in different aircraft! It will help make you more marketable when the time comes!

    #291 Fixed Wing time, would you think that would help? Day 291 Coffee with Kenny! This might be the fastest Coffee with Kenny yet, but today I will be answering a question from a ground school member Logan, he is going to a Part 141 flight school funded by the GI bill. He asks, when companies are hiring, will they except fixed wing hours as well as rotor hours? I say absolutely Logan, it is all good and if you are wanting to do it, and you can afford it, go for it, it may very well help in the career that you are going for!

    #288 The Path to Professional Helicopter Pilot! Welcome to day 288 Coffee with Kenny! We have an awesome question today from a young lady in high school. She lives in Ohio and still goes to school, but wants to know what steps she needs to take in order to get her career going, and what if any college she needs. So to start answering, I will state that a lot of jobs in the helicopter field do not require any degree, however, I would say some kind of aviation degree or specific degree depending on what kind of pilot that you want to be.

    #285 Helicopter Aerobatics, unless specifically trained, DON'T! Welcome to day 285 Coffee with Kenny! Today I wanted to talk about the fact that most Helicopter Aerobatics being done is illegal and not done by trained pilots in approved aircraft. So don't be fooled by the YouTube videos you see, it is not what we are trained to do. If you are trained for this, and fly an approved aircraft, great, good for you, aerobatics are cool! But not if you're doing it to show off and are not trained. Stay safe everyone! Slow, Smooth, Methodical movements!

Answering a question from a member asking about surprise throttle chops and asks about autorotations and auto power on/power off.

  • #278 Private Pilot Ground Questions - where to start?!

    #278 Private Pilot Ground Questions - where to start?!

    28/08/2020 Duración: 09min

    #278 Private Pilot Ground Questions - where to start?! Day 278 Coffee with Kenny! Today I am home on a Saturday and just going to take the time to answer some questions that have been coming in. Many students get overwhelmed and don't really know where to start in the aviation field. I recommend starting with the Private Pilot. Hands down that is where I think you should start! Get started there and get going with some flight time, and then go from there if you want your instrument, commercial, or CFI. Everybody learns in a different way, many ask how long it will take, that's whey we try to keep our videos short, you have progress tracking, go at your own pace, pay monthly, it really just depends where you're at in life and how much time you have to devote to training.

    #277 - What should be in the Helicopter Safety Briefing? Day 277 Coffee with Kenny! This is from our presentation from Heliports, I will put that link down below the video so you can watch the whole thing. It is jam packed with great information! So today I am just going to go over a standard set of things that should be being discussed in a helicopter safety briefing. You must have this communication! You must cover these really important topics with your students and as the PIC and soak up as much as you can!

    #276 Logging Flight Time - Hobbs Time - Pencil Whipping and more...

    26/08/2020 Duración: 20min

    #276 Logging Flight Time - Hobbs Time - Pencil Whipping and more... Day 276 Coffee with Kenny! Today we are going to answer some members questions about logging flight time and Hobbs time ect. This student cares about being honest in his logging and questions the Hobbs meter. Most of us go by engine start, and I think that is acceptable. Some say when the rotors start to when the rotors stop. Something else you need to think about is how many times you're on the ground.

    #275 "adamant to get this thing airborne no matter what" - Coffee With Kenny! Day 275 Coffee with Kenny! First I'd like to start out by introducing some of our guest instructors that are up on our HOGS Wall of Fame! They have all helped in some training presentation videos! They are all a very important part of our training and most started out getting their ratings with us! On to the accident review today, I'll show you the video and point out some things that we can learn from. There are questionable things happening in this video before the rotor blades even begin! Then after the aircraft is started, you can see oil and smoke coming out of it, which at that point would have been my cue to shut it down! Then on to the ground resonance! Let's watch together and please leave your questions and comments below!

    #273 - Helicopter Landing (set downs) For Those That Struggle

    24/08/2020 Duración: 14min

    #273 - Helicopter Landing (set downs) For Those That Struggle Coffee with Kenny day 273! Helicopter set downs is the topic today! I have a cool video for you today inspired by a member who is having trouble with helicopter set downs, that last one or two feet. This is very common and people struggle with this, I know I did. So I'll go over that air cushion that is 6-8 inches above the ground. You've got to push that nice and gentle! I have a couple really good illustrations for you, a square can be a really good focal point for you.

    #272 Helicopter Pilot Struck in head by Rotor Blade

    23/08/2020 Duración: 04min

    #272 Helicopter Pilot Struck in head by Rotor Blade Continuing with our helicopter accident review today, why it is so important to follow safety procedures. The pilot in the video today was lucky to not have been killed by the rotor blades, and unfortunately there are videos out there where people do lose their lives by not following safety procedures. We can always learn by watching these kinds of videos, there are a lot bad things that can happen.

  • #271 Training at Class G vs Class D?

    #271 Training at Class G vs Class D?

    22/08/2020 Duración: 03min

    #271 Training at Class G vs Class D? Day 271 Coffee with Kenny! Great question today about Class G vs Class D from Sean who is taking our Instrument course. I think honestly that you should fly both. It's ok to get comfortabe at one airport, with one instructor and one aircraft, but I think that breaking that up and flying with different instructors, in different airspace, with different aircraft is really good. The more good quality training that you have, the better pilot you will be!

    #270 Rotors Collide Destroying Two Police Helicopters - Coffee With Kenny

    21/08/2020 Duración: 06min

    #270 Rotors Collide Destroying Two Police Helicopters - Coffee With Kenny What do you think happens when two helicopters get to close together? I'll show you a video and put the link below for the whole video. The pilot that was landing said that she was focusing on her box where she normally lands and didn't realize that the helicopter on the ground was not in his box. That is why I always preach, slow, smooth, methodical movements. It looked pretty good until she went to set it down. Thanks for reviewing these accidents with me, I love the educational purpose of it!
