The student will demonstrate the ability to perform a high and low reconnaissance to evaluate wind, terrain, and obstructions, select a proper approach path, touchdown point, and departure path.. He/she shall track the selected approach path toward the touchdown point at an acceptable approach angle, verify findings of the high reconnaissance, and terminate the approach either to a hover or to the surface as appropriate at the selected touchdown point. The student will perform a ground reconnaissance to evaluate wind and obstructions, select a proper takeoff point, and plan a safe hover taxi. He/she shall perform a proper takeoff, safely clearing obstructions, tracking the pre-selected departure path and maintaining engine power within normal operating limits throughout the maneuver.
