You enable us to give relevant training to helicopter pilots
With help from people like you, JAARS will soon welcome a new R66 helicopter to its training fleet here in Waxhaw, North Carolina. Because all JAARS partners with helicopter programs now use turbine-powered aircraft, JAARS decided to add the turbine-powered R66 to enhance our training programs.
It had been a while since Jeff, the helicopter operations supervisor at JAARS, had flown an R66. Since he will be training pilot-mechanics here at JAARS with our new R66, he knew it was time to refresh his skills.
He and two other JAARS-trained helicopter pilots recently attended a two-week R66 training provided by Ethnos360. They learned (or re-learned) that an R66 has more power than an R44. At one point, they were taking off from an elevation of 6,000 feet, while carrying more weight than an R44 could handle.
Soon Jeff will be sharing this knowledge with pilots heading overseas.
A helicopter pilot who plans to fly an R66 overseas will, God willing, attend the JAARS Pre-Field Orientation course in March 2022. Thanks to people like you giving to JAARS Training Solutions, Jeff is now well equipped to teach mission pilots who will fly turbine aircraft overseas to operate them safely and effectively, while sharing the gospel with those who’ve never heard it.
