Type Ratings

Helicopter type ratings are offered for current commercial or private pilots looking to enhance their flight experience with the ability to fly different helicopter types.

The type rating is achieved through the successful completion of:

  • 16 hours of classroom instruction covering aircraft systems, elementary maintenance, normal and emergency procedures, aircraft limitations and performance data.
  • A written aircraft type exam covering the subjects listed above.
  • Multiple training flights and a qualifying flight check with our certified instructor pilots covering all aircraft normal and emergency procedures.
  • Although the minimum flight-time requirements vary with pilot experience and aircraft type, most type ratings can be accomplished with 5-10 hours flight time. Courses can also be customized to include flight operations such as external load and mountain flying.
