  • An interest in helicopters


In this course I introduce some basic features of the Bell 412 and also some normal and abnormal procedures, according to the real flight manual. I am using the flight simulator X-Plane to show you all the content, giving you the opportunity to try it at home without spending thousands of dollars on real helicopter flighttime. This course can be a follow-up to my course about basic helicopter flying, giving you some first experience on a complex helicopter.
Disclaimer: all the course material is shown in a flight simulator. This is no real flight instruction.

I have been an airline pilot for 15 years and a flight instructor on fixed-wing aircraft for nearly 10 years. Recently I also became a helicopter pilot. My second professional interest besides aviation is programming. I do have a university degree in computer science and also work as a self-employed software developer.
