    The S3 ArmA Aviation Center of Excellence is conducting Rotary flight training in the month of June. This training is open to all troopers of the Regiment, regardless of MOS. We will be running the Ground School, Basic Rotary Wing and Advanced Rotary Wing courses. While these courses must be completed in order, they may be done over any period of time that suits the individual student - there is no time-out period. After completing each course, the student must pass each evaluation one on one with an Instructor Pilot.

    Ground School says it needs 120 minutes but here it says the class is 1 hour?

    Would it be too ambitious to schedule ground school, and then jump into basic rotary immediately following the GS. class that same day? I have limited flight time behind the stick.

    Once I complete basic rotary, how long do I have to schedule an evaluation? Is there a time-limit?

    Thank you

    Ground school and basic rotary are both classroom sessions. Completely doable and probably recommended. Evaluations have no time limit. Keep in mind though that you need to pass the basic flight evaluation in order to attend the advanced class.

    Like the Major said there is no time limit, but I purposefully got the GS and Basic back to back, so as to allow at least 2 weeks before the advanced so folks had the time to get stick time in, practice, get the basic eval complete and sign up for the advanced class. I think you'll do fine.

    Edit: If you feel like you need more time after the classes and feel like you won't be ready for a basic eval by the time the next advanced class, then that's fine too.
