Callum has passed his R44 type rating skills test

Another great milestone for Callum as he passes his R44 type rating skills test.

After completing the R44 Type Rating course, Callum was tested by CAA-authorised examiner and Helicentre Aviation Head of Training, Captain Sarah Bowen.

Captain Bowen said: “Callum is an exceptionally skilled pilot and having this Type Rating means he can now fly charter and training operations in the Robinson R44 when he gets to Florida. I wish him all the best for his new chapter as Base Manager at our operation in Winter Haven and can’t wait to see how he takes operations Stateside to the next level.”

Callum added: “I’m excited to use this Type Rating and to begin instructing on the R44 in America, particularly to help hour building students begin using this aircraft, as they will be able to fly further to explore more of what Florida has to offer.”

There is not currently an R44 at the Florida base, however, there are plans to incorporate this as an option for pilots who would like to build time on this aircraft. Callum will be able to now assist with introducing pilots to the aircraft.
