Progress to other types of aircraft with a Helicopter Type Rating.
So you have learnt to fly, but human nature means you would like a new challenge. Type Rating Training is a way of progressing onto different, usually larger, types of aircraft. The R44 is the next step up if you learnt to fly on a smaller type; larger, faster, more powerful, better range, and capable of carrying more passengers. The R44 opens doors for longer trips and more challenging landing areas.Any questions?
Bell 206 Jet Ranger
You may have already learnt to fly the R44 during the PPL, in which case the Bell 206 Jet Ranger is the next step. This 5 seat classic can carry more weight and has a large luggage compartment. Perfect for weekends away or golfing trips. Although it flies similarly to the R44, the turbine engine will give you something extra to think about.Ready?
