Over here in the UK we have to do a type rating for each helicopter type, but I'm sure I've heard that in the USA you they don't have actual ratings until you get over a certain aircraft weight - I could be wrong though. It would be interesting to hear from some of our international members to clarify this!

What are the rules in Norway HeliStian? I presume all JAA countries follow the same regulations when it comes to type rating training?

Hi WG.

I'm not quiet sure what the rules are in Norway. That's what I try too figure out. I'm in Australia doing my CPL-H. And have got a few ratings. So was wondering if I got them with me back too Europe. But I should think it's the same for all the JAA countries.

I'll be back in Norway in a month too do my ATPL. Guess I get my answer from the airlaw then Wink

But I hope some other guys have an answer.

I may get this slightly wrong, but from memory the requirements are within JAA land:

R22 & R44 - 5 hour type rating course each.
Other than that, single engine piston, I think the first type is 5 hours, then from SEP - SEP - 3 hour type rating course.
Single engine turbine, first type 5 hour course, then SET - SET 3 hours.
There is a concept of class within JAR and within the SEP class there is the Brantly, Sweitzer (SP), Bell 47 and one or two more but not the robbos which are treated separately. You can do an LPC in one type in the class, and as long as you have sufficient hours in the other types, this covers you. You must do your successive LPCs on the next type and the next type etc.
Similar type concepts apply to SETs.

This is as per JAR FCL Amendment 3. I believe in amendment 4 the SET - SET and SEP - SEP course will come down to two hours. The initials will remain at 5. So it depend which amendment of JAR FCL your home country is corrently working to.

This is all covered in LASORs, section H possibly. Available on the web on teh CAA website.
