  I have seen many programs on American aviation, yet all seem to have very common. However, this program is very different. Featuring on the special maneuvers in flying, Alpha Aviation Olympics gives an in-depth look at how this unique team of Japanese elites brought an alternative interest of flying to an international level. The tasks (Rice Bags, Fender and Slalom) themselves seem to look really easy and childish, however, if you have tried flying on a helicopter before, you may know how hard it eventually is. In fact, this competition truly reveals how well a person can manage to control a helicopter. As seen from their ultimate passion and seriousness in aviation, I am actually very impressed by their professionalism in flying, and of course their achievements has been highly recognized internationally over the past few years. After all, flying is not all about commuting from one place to another, yet it can be challenging but a lot of fun. From this video, one thing that I do admire a lot is that, not only does Alpha Aviation operate as largest helicopter company in Japan, it shows a high attention on their pilots and students, given them with opportunities to explore different interests in flying, which can hardly be found from anywhere else in the Asian Pacific. I do enjoy watching this interesting documentary profiling their Aviation Olympics and would definitely recommend to all of you who are interested in flying a helicopter and for those who are especially interested in the special achievements that Asian has done at an international stage. They are truly the pioneers of helicopter flying.

One and a half hours later, Yuta gets an emergency call from Yujiro because his cruiser has engine trouble, so he asks Yuta to bring the part to his boat, which is drifting 20 miles off course. He is afraid of running aground due to low tide. He pushes Yuta to find the part and deliver it to the cruiser.

At the same time, Ayuko arrives at the yacht club, but she does not understand what's going on . Yuta decides to ask his instructor , Mr.Aoyama, for help.

How to be a helicopter pilot Part 2 Good luck ! 〜 Freedom of air〜 (58min)
One of our students plays the part of the hero. This program is similar to a documentary. The viewer watches him become a commercial pilot. This is the day of his final flight check for applying for the commercial check ride. His instructor orders his navigation course then he takes off from Alpha's heliport as his flight instructor tests his skill. This flight was very interesting because he recovers from several emergency situations and answers the instructor's questions during the flight. It is a very helpful TV program for private owners of R44s and student pilots.
