Title: Fly Neighborly Training with Latest Robinson R44 Noise Abatement Guidance
Duration: 1 Hour
Who can attend? Anyone
Dial-in available? (listen only): Yes
Did you know that how you fly your R44 today can directly affect the future of helicopter flight?
Our flight habits can have a long-term impact on whether we’re allowed to fly at all. That’s what the Fly Neighborly Noise Abatement Training program is all about—reducing our noise footprints to create better relationships with our communities. When we as an industry take steps to fly neighborly by keeping the noise we create as low as possible, we help mitigate frustration on the ground that could lead to increased regulations and ordinances regarding helicopters.
Join us as Eric Jacobs, a member of the HAI Fly Neighborly / Environmental Working Group, provides helpful information on proven noise-abatement, listening, and communication tactics that help maintain positive relationships with our communities. He’ll also share specific guidance for pilots operating one of the most common and heavily flown aircraft in the world— the Robinson R44.

Eric Jacobs is a member and past chair of the HAI Fly Neighborly / Environmental Working Group. He has 25 years of experience in helicopter noise-abatement flight testing and procedure development, both as an employee of Sikorsky, a Lockheed Martin Company, and as an independent contractor to NASA and FAA/Volpe.
