The soundtrack was also processed with volume normalization, noise reduction, clipping reduction, and equalization.

The Sikorsky H-19 Chickasaw, (also known by its Sikorsky model number, S-55) was a multi-purpose helicopter used by the United States Army and United States Air Force. It was also license-built by Westland Aircraft as the Westland Whirlwind in the United Kingdom. United States Navy and United States Coast Guard models were designated HO4S, while those of the U.S. Marine Corps were designated HRS. In 1962, the U.S. Navy, U.S. Coast Guard and U.S. Marine Corps versions were all redesignated as H-19s like their U.S. Army and U.S. Air Force counterparts…

The H-19's first flight was on November 10, 1949 and it entered operations in 1950. Over 1,000 of the helicopters were manufactured by Sikorsky for the United States. An additional 550 were manufactured by licensees of the helicopter including Westland Aircraft, the Société nationale des constructions aéronautiques du sud-est (SNCASE) in France and Mitsubishi in Japan.

The helicopter was widely exported, used by many other nations, including Portugal, Greece, Israel, Chile, South Africa, Denmark and Turkey.

In 1954 the Marines tested an idea to assist the rotors lift better in hot or high climates and if the helicopter was overloaded, by installing a rocket nozzle at the tip of each rotor blade with the fuel tank located in the center above the rotor blade hub. Enough fuel was provided for seven minutes of operation.

Operational history

The H-19 Chickasaw holds the distinction of being the US Army's first true transport helicopter and, as such, played an important role in the initial formulation of Army doctrine regarding air mobility and the battlefield employment of troop-carrying helicopters. The H-19 underwent live service tests in the hands of the 6th Transportation Company, during the Korean War beginning in 1951 as an unarmed transport helicopter. Undergoing tests such as medical evacuation, tactical control and front-line cargo support, the helicopter succeeded admirably in surpassing the capabilities of the H-5 Dragonfly which had been used throughout the war by the Army.

The U.S. Air Force ordered 50 H-19A's for rescue duties in 1951. These aircraft were the primary rescue and medical evacuation helicopters for the USAF during the Korean War. The Air Force continued to use the H-19 through the 1960s, ultimately acquiring 270 of the H-19B model.

France made aggressive use of helicopters in Algeria, both as troop transports and gunships, Piasecki/Vertol H-21 and Sud-built Sikorski H-34 helicopters rapidly displaced fixed-wing aircraft for the transport of paras and quick-reaction commando teams. In Indochina, a small number of Hiller H-23s and Sikorsky H-19s were available for casualty evacuation. In 1956, the French Air Force experimented with arming the H-19, then being superseded in service by the more capable Piasecki H-21 and Sikorsky H-34 helicopters. The H-19 was originally fitted with a 20-mm cannon, two rocket launchers, plus a 20-mm cannon, two 12.7-mm machine guns, and a 7.5-mm light machine gun firing from the cabin windows, but this load proved far too heavy, and even lightly armed H-19 gunships fitted with flexible machine guns for self-defense proved underpowered.

The H-19 was also used in the early days of the Vietnam War before being supplanted by the Sikorsky H-34 Choctaw, which was based on the H-19…

After my GF got me started on Helicopter training a year ago I finally got my Private Pilot Certificate 06/09/12. She promised she would be my first passenger so on 06/14/12 I completed the helicopter training circle by taking her for her first ever ride in a helicopter. The bird is a Hughes Schweizer Sikorsky 300C owned and operated by Canyon State Aero based out of Falcon Field (KFFZ) Mesa, Arizona.

Private Pilot Helicopter: What are the requirements?

No Comments

Helicopter Online Ground School:

Helicopter private pilot? What is required and what do I need to get started, what do I need to do to get started? I'm Kenny Keller, creator of Helicopter Online Ground School. This is one of our most frequently asked questions people ask all the time. Well, what do I have to do to get the rating, how do I go about it? What I tell them is, the first thing you want to do is schedule an introductory flight. Most people don't realize that all you have to do is call up your local flight school and get an introductory flight schedule. You don't have to go through any specific training, you don't have to do a bunch of study. Schedule an introductory flight and go out and give it a try. Call them up, tell them you've never been up, you're interested in learning to fly helicopters, and that you want to go up for an introductory flight. That's how you get started.
Once you get that introductory flight in, if you decide, "Hey, this is something I really want to do. I want to keep going. I want to chase after this dream." Research the flight schools in your area. Depending on where you live you might have several choices or you might have to travel quite a distance to get to a helicopter flight school where you can take lessons. I'd get the introductory flight in first, go check it out see what you think of it. Make sure it's something that you think is going to be as cool as what you think it is because it is. Once you get there and you do it you'll love it, but that will be the next step.
Then, if you decide that you're going to continue on, I wouldn't spend a bunch of money right after that, I would get the Rotorcraft Flying Handbook to start with. It's a $15 or $20 book, you can order online at many different places. You just search Rotorcraft Flying Handbook. You can also download a free PDF copy from faa.gov. They will give you a free copy so you could start kind of learning there. You could also use our Helicopter Online Ground School. I started this March 1, 2012. We have had huge member success. We have people all over the world using our training and it's been pretty awesome. We have people that have used our training prior to going to the flight training, so that you use the ground training to get the knowledge before you go start flying. That's another option for you is you can use our ground school to help learn the information. Then, once you get a few lessons going you want to get a medical certificate fairly early on, which is basically a flight physical. You have to go do an FAA designated flight examiner to have this physical. The only reason I say do it fairly early is if you find out you have a problem with vision or some other problem then you have some time to correct that prior to soloing and trying to get the license. Also, in the event you did have some kind of medical problem, it's better to find out before you spend a bunch of money and then be frustrated and upset later because a medical condition is holding you back. It's a good idea to get that medical certificate done pretty early in the training. Next, the FAA requires a minimum of 40 hours of flight training. This is the minimum. Most people take more like 60-70 hours. Keep in mind that if you get done in 40 great, but in 15 years of doing this I haven't seen very many people get done in 40. I've seen 41, 42 a couple of times but it doesn't happen very often. Don't feel bad because, again, the average person takes 60-70. Just because of time, commitment, school, family, other activities you have going on, it's hard for a person to always get done in 40 hours.
Next, you have to have a minimum of hours. A minimum of that 40 you have to have 20 hours of dual instruction and then you also have to have 10 hours of solo time. Now, if you're an airplane pilot doing an add on you have to have the 20 hours of dual, the 10 hours of solo. If you're coming off the street, you have to have the minimum of the 20 dual, 10 of solo, and that other 10 or more is going to be with your instructor prepping for the check ride. You can always solo more than 10 hours if you like. If time and money permits you could always go more than 10, but that's the minimum. To get to the private, minimum 20 dual, 10 solo, and the other 10 can be determined as you're going along.
Then, next you're going to have to have a pre-solo written test issued by your instructor. You start flying, he's going to get you proficient to take the aircraft out alone and fly those 10 hours. Before he can do that he has to go through the FARA Manual, which is our regulations. He has to go through and cover a certain amount of things with you, ground and flying-wise, before he can let you go. Once you've completed those items in the FAR/AIM Manual and feels that you're competent and he feels good about your abilities, he can let you go solo.

Every single Check Ride the examiner is going to ask you these things about your Aircraft.You need to make sure they are current, and filled out. The story I want to tell here is I failed My First Private Pilot Check Ride! The one Big Mistake we made, every time we talked about Aircraft Logbooks, they were always locked up in the Mechanics Office! So we went through all the Helicopter Training and The PTS, The Practical Test Standards, but failed to ever get our hands on the logbooks, that's where we messed up. I was a nervous wreck anyway, one of the first things the FAA Examiner wanted to do was look at Schweitzer Aircraft Logbooks. So we get them, then he says show me the last 100 hour inspection! It was not a New Helicopter, so there were lots of entries. As I am going through page by page, the examiner is huffing and puffing, tapping on the desk, writing things down, as of course I become more and more nervous. Well you can guess how this Check Ride ended! Helicopter Check Ride Fail! Helicopter Lessons and Helicopter Training Online! Helicopter Check Ride Failure.
