TS 61.34.1 Requirements for helicopter game or livestock rating
TS 61.34.1(d) Training
1     Aim of training course
1.1     The aim of the training course is to train a candidate to the level of
        proficiency required for the issue of an helicopter Game or Livestock Cull
        Rating, and to provide the training necessary to act as pilot-in-command of
        a helicopter engaged in game or livestock cull operations.
2     Contents and requirements of training course
    2.1 The candidate must have completed not less than 250 hours of flight time
        as pilot-in-command of a helicopter. The course must be conducted by
        the holder of an aviation training organisation approval, issued by the
        Commissioner in terms of Part 141.
    2.2 The course comprises -
          (a)   theoretical knowledge course; and
          (b)   practical training course.
3     Theoretical knowledge course
    3.1 The theoretical knowledge course must comprise instruction on the
        following:
          (a)   The significance of operations within and outside ground effect, and
                  the correct use of the relevant performance charts;
          (b)   the pre-flight checking and correct operation of the helicopter for
                  low-level flying, including the emergency procedures;
          (c)   the importance of a full and correct briefing for all flight and ground
                  crew members participating in the operation as regards to area of
                  operations;
          (d)   responsibilities and duties of other crew members;
          (e)   correct radio procedures and terminology for intercom
                  communications between the pilot and other crew;
          (f)   operational procedures;
          (g)   emergency procedures, including engine failure in the hover,
          (h)   the pre-flight briefing which is given just before each flight, and
                  which consists of a brief summary of the operation to be carried
                  out taking into account any particular points of airmanship, air
                  traffic control, obstructions and meteorology pertaining to the
                  flight; and
          (i)   the relevant air law aspects.

 4.1 In-flight instruction
A full briefing must be given during flight, covering the following:
          (a) Airmanship -
              (i) The suitability of the operational areas in respect of size,
                   shape, surface, slope, approach and take-off paths and
                   obstructions;
             (ii) Helicopter operation with due regard to such matters as
                   power in the hover, power limitations, hovering into the wind,
                   position of ground crew, and obstructions;
             (iii) The limits for the relevant conditions;
             (iv) Good lookout at all times;
             (v) Operation in conservation areas at low level,
             (vi) Other crew members, if used, must be safely secured to the
                   helicopter at all times by means of a safety harness or seat
                   belt.
        (b)          Demonstrate the helicopter flight attitudes and the transition to
                       forward flight when at a safe height;
       (i)        appropriate speeds should take into account the for the flight
                 characteristics, the environment, level of turbulence and
                 engine power available;
             (ii) Approach to Game or Livestock target –
        (c)  The approach should be cautious and fairly shallow, taking into
                account the distance above the surface;
            b)      The transition to the hover, where required, should be high
            enough to ensure adequate clearance between the aircraft and the
            surface or ground obstacles;
        (d) Common faults -
              (i)    Lack of appreciation for ground clearance;
             (ii)    Vertical drift when hovering over the target;
             (iii)   Horizontal drift when hovering over the target;
             (iv)    Pilot-induced oscillations due to over-controlling on the cyclic;
             (v)     Trying to counter oscillations in flight using cyclic instead of
                     power and speed.
 4.2 Exercise: Target approach procedures
        (a)          Terminate the approach in a high hover over the target area well
                       clear of the surface or ground obstacles.
        (b)          Maintain a steady inside ground effect hover or outside ground
                       effect hover while monitoring the power required to hover;
        (c)          Post-flight discussion is to review the exercise and can be used to
                       amplify or clarify any particular point or difficulty, thus
                       consolidating the exercise as a whole.
