ADVANCED HELICOPTER FLIGHT TRAINING
TURBINE TRANSITION TRAINING
While flight training in an R44 is a great start, most helicopter operators operate with turbine aircraft. You will become a more marketable pilot in the workforce once you receive turbine transition training. We have developed an in-depth syllabus to provide students with the necessary training to complete this course in our MD 500D. Our instructors are all high time MD 500 series pilots, with various real-world applications in the MD. This course consists of approximately 16 hours of ground instruction, and up to 5 hours of flight instruction.
In the real world, some operators land their aircraft on a landing platform. In the EMS sector, helicopters have to practice landing on helipads, some of which are tight squeezes in a busy downtown atmosphere. This course will aid your confidence to land on a small platform, and will take approximately 2 hours to achieve.
