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,

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 Razz

ps. either that or you cut out the vouchers from underneath R22's and R44's and send off for it in the post Razz

HAHAAA Very Happy

How long would the conversion take from R-22 to 66?

Im assuming, because its a turbine.... it would take more than the 5 hours (minimum) required for the 44?

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.

5 hours for 206b and H500 etc.

Why would the R66 be any different ?

I don't think there will be many "busy instructors", there aren't going to be that many of the machines over here for a while yet......

I think it's 8 hours required to transition to a turbine from a piston.

With it not being multi engine, 5 hours it is then !

But if you've only got 5 hours turbine time, you can forget any solo sfh ! (Unless you own the machine, and even then there may be insurance minimums)
