Today during the morning routine the question came up about obtaining a fixes Wong license to aid in gettin experience with both instrument flying, cross country, and night. Of course this would all be on a PPL(A), but the requirements for most helicopter equivilent allow for alot of tome to be had on fixed wing. For instance the Canadian IR allows for only a handful of hours to be in a helicopter. I'm thinking since the cost is so much less for training in fixed qwing, why don't more people follow that route?

Talked to a local flight school today, the credit towards the PPL(A) is half the ground school and 30 hours of flight time. It's not a cheap alternative to build night, cross country and instrument time, but a heck of a lot cheaper than the helicopter route.

Has anyone used fixed wing for building instrument time or night? Then using the experience towards a the helicopter equivalent rating?

It may have changed but I believe in the US at one time you didn't need the (A) licence to log IR time in an airplane....

actually here you don't either, you can log 15 of the 20 hours actual or simulated instrument time in a plane. Problem is I'm fairly certain you need to be enrolled in a course to use the time.

Actually worth looking up. MVH (the school I went to) offers a IR with the fixed wing time building, I'm curious if one can keep going for instrument flights for the time aspect, then when you want the actual license, complete the helicopter side of things.
