A helicopter is used in a variety of situations because of its usability. Its operation, needs human skill. The authors are working on automatization of human skill. Helicopter operation is one of such fields of practicing human skill. This is why the present paper deals with helicopter (model helicopter) operation. Full operation of a helicopter needs more complicated system in both aspects of software and hardware, and also requires more training for operation. From the purpose here that helicopter operation is for checking the applicability of the authors' idea for automatization based on experience, attitude regulation in hovering is the target. In the present paper, a human operator's operation is recorded as a time series of operation actions, and the record is reorganized as the correspondence between the helicopter's attitude and the proper operation action required in that particular situation.
