Joe embarks on his R44 type rating course

As part of his hour building, Joe is doing his type rating on the Robinson R44, a larger, 4 seat helicopter, which flys faster and provides more power through it’s larger engine and rotor blades.

Joe is very excited to complete this type rating and begin flying part of his hour building on this type in order to build up his experience on the aircraft. He is being taught by experienced instructor and 2013 FI(H) scholarship winner, Morgan Whiting, who also instructed Joe throughout his PPL(H).

With a type rating on the R44, Joe is looking to fly further with a view to experiencing more areas, airspace, and challenges along the way which will help develop his skills as he moves into the CPL(H) course.

We look forward to writing more stories about Joe’s exciting times during his hour building!
