I know that most of the kit built helicopters come with a test flight manual that contains the steps and requirements to move thru the test flights to be safe to move from ground run, hover, and then flight and autorotations.

If any of you guys have one, would you please contact me on private message so that I may obtain a copy. I would gladly pay for such a copy too.

thanks
David

I am currently training in a R22Beta, did 4 hours last week, have 3 more scheduled for next week. Fun and very responsive.

The FAA has a very good Flight Testing Advisory Circular ### For Phase I of any Experimental Amateur Built aircraft.
https://www.faa.gov/documentLibrary/media/Advisory_Circular/AC_90-89B.pdf

The second hyperlink is for the BEST all inclusive guidance for EAB Helicopter flight testing. https://trace.tennessee.edu/cgi/viewcontent.cgi?referer=https://www.google.com/&httpsredir=1&article=2726&context=utk_gradthes The author is a retired US Army W-3 who flew Chinooks. I'm pretty sure he flew for the 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment which are undisputably the best helicopter pilots in the world.

I found those in a Google search. Yes the second is really good. I was proud to be a Night Stalker but did not care much for Ft Campell in the late summers. Then again after 3 years at the detachment at Hunter Army Airfield, I learned to like Savannah. I learned to skydive just north of Savannah as a old bomber training base in Walterboro SC
