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

This is intended to be used during a stage check for an CFII-H applicant in a Robinson R22 or R44. We assume that the applicant already has a CFI-H. It is a condensed version of the CFII-H FAA standards effective November 1, 2006. Specific numbers for manuevers are taken from the Instrument Pilot PTS standards effective January 1, 2009. Where the PTS does not specify an airspeed, the number is from the Robinson POH or FAA Rotorcraft Flying Handbook (RFH). Use a red pen to mark an applicant's performance next to the FAA standard.

For each task: instructional knowledge, common errors (identify, analyze and correct simulated), demonstrate and explain.
