  • SFAR 73 Examiner check flight at 200hr point
  • Flight Physical on site

We can also tailor courses that provide a mix of R22, Schweizer 300 CBI, R44 and Mountain Time.

Completion of this course will provide all of the required qualifications and FAA approvals to teach at most flight schools in the USA in the R22 Helicopter.

SFAR 73 dictates 200 hours flight time  in addition to an Examiner check flight in order for Certified Flight Instructors to be authorized to teach in Robinson R22's and R44's.

Additionally to teach in R44's you must have a minimum of 25 hours flight time in an R44 and in most cases most flight school insurance companies require 50 hours in R44's for their instructors to be able to instruct in them.

More and more flight schools (like Cloud 9 Helicopters) use the R44 for Instrument Flight Training and prefer new hires to have some R44 time. Please contact Geoff Painter directly to discuss your aspirations and this package including 25 hours R44 time in more detail.
