I’m intrigued by how you get a type rating for a completely new helicopter in the UK.
The R66 is not an evolution of a previous type…does that mean a number of examiners have to go to the USA to get certified, or does someone come here:?: _________________ heliaviator(Ian) PPL(H) R44
As far as I can make out, you will probably find an instructor or two from most major Robinson dealers or training organisations going to the USA to get type rated, and cleared to give type rating courses.
There's going to be afew busy instructors
ps. either that or you cut out the vouchers from underneath R22's and R44's and send off for it in the post
That would be good if BLME could get a definitive answer on here, otherwise we will have to press "the pilot with the sharpest sideburns of any aviator, and possibly the driest sense of humour" for an answer.
