A Private Pilot Certificate with a Helicopter rating. The Turbine Transition course is a 2-day course that is taught in our Bell 206 Jetranger Helicopter by one of our Bell Factory Trained Pilots. Turbine time is not something that a low time student has to have in their logbook, but it looks good on a resume. Once a Pilot reaches around 1000 hours of piston PIC time and is hired by a commercial operator, then that operator will most likely transition that Pilot into their turbine helicopters to their standards.

Courses Included the Following:

  • 5 hours of dual instruction in the Bell 206 Jetranger. $900/hr – $4,500
  • 10 hours of ground instruction. $50/hr – $500
