Type rating R66

Type rating on Robinson R66 is a training course for pilots who want to obtain qualifications for piloting a more advanced helicopter, the Robinson R66. This model is a six-seater tourist helicopter equipped with a turbine engine, which sets it apart from the R44, which has a piston engine. During the training, pilots learn to operate the turbine engine, avionics, and specific flight procedures and helicopter R66 systems management. Upon completing the course and passing the exam, the pilot receives qualifications for piloting the Robinson R66 helicopter.

It's worth noting that type ratings are often required by aviation regulations to fly more advanced or specialized aircraft.
