Used in helicopter training at East Coast Aero Club in Boston.

This is used during stage checks for helicopter ATP applicants in a Robinson R44 IFR Trainer. It is a condensed version of the helicopter ATP FAA standards effective August 1, 1998. Where the PTS does not specify an airspeed, the number is from the Robinson POH or FAA Rotorcraft Flying Handbook (RFH). Each task requires "demonstrating sound judgment and CRM". Use a red pen to mark an applicant's performance next to the FAA standard.
