 The Aerofly FS 2 R22 helicopter comes standard with two modes. You can fly with no assistance by clicking in the '​Expert'​ checkbox located at the bottom of the selection screen, or if you are new to flying helicopters you can leave the box unchecked. By doing so you will receive enough assistance to provide you with more stable flight control. The Aerofly FS 2 R22 helicopter comes standard with two modes.

 **Checked box** - Suitable more for advanced pilots that want a more realistic flight experience. The use of rudder pedals or a rudder control is highly recommended to use this mode. **Checked box** - Suitable more for advanced pilots that want a more realistic flight experience.

    * Slowly pull your collective up towards you. Make sure that you apply some right rudder to stop the lift-off turning tendency. The more collective you add the higher you will go, so lets get to around 500 feet and lower the collective slowly until you stop gaining altitude. Look at your vertical speed gauge, when the needle is centered at 0 you are hovering    * Slowly pull your collective up towards you.

 +**Note** - As many helicopter pilots become more comfortable with control, they also tend to use visual guides that are available to them. One of the guides is to look at the horizon and compare your attitude with it, and another unique visual guide is to look at the **Yaw String** in front of you.
  
 +   * You will know that you are hovering if the yaw string shows no movement and is pointing downward. ​

 +Lets now fly forward from your hover.
 +
 +   * To fly forward simply push forward on the cyclic, your nose will lower. Whenever you make changes to the cyclic you should also make slight adjustments to the collective to maintain level flight. So flying forward will bleed some airspeed causing you to lost altitude to you need to compensate with more collective.
