Type Ratings

On completion of your PPL(H) your licence will be endorsed to allow you to fly the type of helicopter you have trained on. If, however, you would like to extend this to other helicopter types you must complete a ‘type rating’ course on that aircraft.

 

This course usually consists of a minimum of 5 hours flying, relevant ground school theory and a skills test with a CAA approved examiner.

 

Remember, you must fly a minimum of 2 hours on each type of helicopter per year and complete a proficiency check with an examiner to keep your ratings current. At Arcus, we have in-house examiners to ensure your types are renewed simply and easily.     

 

Arcus offer type ratings on all of the helicopters in our fleet- please contact us for a quote or more information.
