Balearic Helicopters uses a CAA approved ATO (Flight Training Organisation) allowed to conduct Type Rating Conversions for the R22 and R44.Request a quote
To convert to the Robinson R44 is only a five hour structured course and skills test. There is also 10 hours Ground School and a R44 Technical Paper which must be passed (75% pass mark). Afterwards you will be eligible to fly any R44, carrying up to 3 passengers.
This is a natural progression for most Private Pilots Licence holders and essential for people wanting to become a commercial pilot. With our location, weather and machine availability means that you can come here and complete the course in as little as three days!
The Robinson R44's we operate are the Raven I and Clipper II's type (with hydraulics), one of the most modern fleets in Europe.
