Helicopter Flow Check

Site Home : Flying : Videos : One Item

Completion of the manufacturer's checklist usually ensures safe operation of an aircraft. However, an additional level of safety and smoothness of operation can be obtained by conducting a top-to-bottom flow check of every instrument, avionics box, and switch in the aircraft prior to departure.

This video demonstrates this technique in a Robinson R44 helicopter.
