Single to Multi-Engine IR Conversion
This course is for holders of an IR(H) valid for single engine helicopters wishing to extend for the first time the IR(H) to a multi-engine Helicopter.
This course comprises of extensive ground school, which is followed by at least 5 hours dual instruction time, of which 3 hours may be in one of our simulators and 2 hours in a multi-engine helicopter.
This is then followed by an Instrument Skills Test in a multi-engine helicopter.
Students will require the relevant helicopter type rating before commencement of this instrument course.
This course is relatively short and students are encouraged to take advantage of “ free simulator practice”, as this will probably be the first multi-engine helicopter that they have flown.
Two weeks plus the relevant type rating

“After searching round many flying schools with the aim of pursuing a career in the Civilian helicopter industry I was recommended this academy. Not only was the location perfect but on first impressions the staff were very helpful in providing me with all the details I needed to make my informed decision.
I was an experienced military pilot but had never flown procedural before but thanks to the very professional and knowledgeable instructors I passed the IR test first time. Overall the friendly team of both management and instructors made the IR course a great and pleasurable experience and therefore I would not hesitate in endorsing this academy.“
