Hover Taxi

floating taxi

heliporting Rolling applies to work on or near the surfaces of taxiway ways or other specifiedways. Suspended taxi is used when it is operated below 25 ft above the floor (AGL). 9-4 ] Since the hover taxi is exactly like a forward, sideways or backward floating ride, the method to accomplish it is not introduced here.

Floating taxi. Airtaxis is preferable when movement requires greater distance within an airfield or helicport. In this case, you are flying to the new site; however, the chopper is required to maintain a reasonable speed below 100 ft AGL and prevent other planes, cars and persons from flying over.

Lufttaxi. Prior to take-off, identify the appropriate flight speed/altitude combinations to stay outside the shadowed or shadowed areas of the Altitude-Speed-Graph. Select two reference models directly in front of the chopper for the required floorway. Start the manoeuvre from a standard floating elevation by exerting forward force on the cycle.

Once the motion begins, you reach the required flight speed with the beat. Adjust the height with the spectrum and the speed with the accelerator pedal. Keep a desirable driving speed and lane with the beat throughout the manoeuvre, a steady course with antitoric foot controls, the desirable height with the crew and the correct engine speed with the accelerator pedal.

In order to stop the forward flow, use the rear cyclical force to decrease the forward velocity. At the same time lower the total to start a descend to the hovering height. When the forward move is stopped, bring the cycle back to the idle mode to avoid backward move. If you are getting close to the correct air level, raise the level of the group if necessary to stop the descend at the air level (similar to a rapid stop manoeuvre).

Irregular motion of the cycle, resulting in incorrect speed regulation and irregular motion across the topface. Lack of use of the correct anti-torque foot switch, leading to an exaggerated course-shift. The required height is not maintained. Non-compliance with the correct speed. The orientation to the driving lane is not maintained. An overland taxi is used to minimise the impact of waste water from the rotors.

Illustration 9-6] Prevent excess cyclical rolling on land or floor that may cause major blade contact with the chopper or tower. Land taxi. Helicopters should be in a fixed attitude on the wingtip, with the crew fully extended and the speed of rotation the same as a hovering flight.

Then slightly move the cycle forward and gradually exert upwards force on the team to move the chopper forward along the area. You can use the antitoric foot control to keep the course and the cycle control to keep the floor tracking. Together, they control start, stop and cruise while rolling. While the higher the slope, the quicker the taxi ride, do not roll quicker than a quick stroll.

Check that the brake is applied to the chopper when it is fitted with a brake. Don't use the cycle to steer the ground speed. Keep the clock so far into the air during a side blast taxi that no drift movements occur. Incorrect use of cyclical. It is not possible to use antitoric foot controls for course regulation.

Non-compliance with the correct speed. Described in a conversation setting, the novel de-mystifies the arts and sciences of chopperflight.
