We pass on the knowledge you need to legally operate your specific aircraft and for all training we ensure that the highest quality and safety standards are maintained.
Here at Castle Air Academy there are five specific types of Type Rating training on offer:
These courses will either include a 3 or 8-hour aircraft test (plus a skills test) and we can also provide ‘differences’ training between the AW109E and AW109S helicopters, subject to the relevant Type Ratings held. Your training will start out with an in-depth helicopter construction, system and modes of operation briefing. The next stage is a flying course, tailored to the ratings you hold and previous experience, followed by a skills test which is again designed around specific requirements.
