Northern Helicopters is a Swedish CAA approved Flight Training Organization (FTO) allowing us to train helicopter pilots to fly various helicopter types from small piston engine helicopter to larger turbine engine helicopters.
One you have your Private Pilot License with a type rating on a flight trainer like the Cabri G2 you might want to fly a larger helicopter to be able to carry more passengers. To start flying an other helicopter type you need to take a type rating course for the helicopter type you want to fly.
We offer helicopter type ratings on the following aircraft types:
The type rating course will allow the pilot get familiar with the new helicopter type and get to know the differences in mechanics, technology, operation, performance and aerodynamics. But not least, emergency procedures.
Minimum practical flight training is 5 hrs (8 hrs for first turbine type rating). The technical course for every helicopter type is included in the course without any extra fee.
