I completely agree to that!

However, currently I cannot envision how to practice autorotations in a Mosquito since you cannot take a CFI with you. 

I just have a few autos in a Schweizer 300CBI and that thing drops like a stone during the auto and currently I just cant imagine that I ever could do this wihout the CFI. 
Does training in other helicopters help? Do you need to practice in the Mosquito or would it be sufficient to practice with a CFI in an Schweizer or Robinson?

How you all do this? 

How often do you practice autos? 

I do understand that one has to learn how to fly this helicopter step by step since there cannot be in flight instruction, so you go from simple hover to taxi to flight to quickstops and so on but autorotation I just cant envision, at least right now.

Thanks
Christoph

Hi Christoph,

The best thing to do is to learn it with your CFI in a R22 which is closer to the Mosquito in term of auto feeling but still more difficult to do than with a Mosquito. Do it regulary and as soon as you feel 100% confortable to auto the R22, let's try it with your Mosquito.

But you have to go step by step ! First do a lot of quick stops and other basics training as hover auto's,...etc.. and when you are ok to test an auto with your mosquito, do it on a power recovery mode at around 4-6 feet above the ground.

But don't forget... step by step is an important key ! As soon as you will feel confident in R22, you will be on your mosquito... Of course, the first one is always the more stressfull one ;-) then, when the unknow has becomes know, it will be easyer.

Hope it's help.
Fred
