The intro flight is a newcomer's first familiarization flight. Its purpose is mainly to make sure all technical things work, make the newcomer feel welcome, go through some radio stuff and have some fun. It's not that important to learn any particular skills during the flight. That can come later. This article describes the content of the sortie. A newcomer is welcome to practice any moments before, but there is no requirement nor expectation to do so. However, all newcomers are expected to have gone through the Technical Checklist carefully, before the flight. This step is important. You're more than welcome to ask for help if you have any issues following the guide, but please don't ignore any of the mandatory steps. The intro flight is designed for huey pilots, for other aircraft see Intro Flight.
