AUS CPLH to USA & CANADIAN CPLH

Postby Red Eagle » Wed Feb 20 2019, 02:20

Hi all you heli lovers,

I am about to go over and do my USA and Canadian CPLH. I have most things sorted but just un sure if there is any advantages of doing the FAA first or the Canadian?

Also does anyone knows the min training I have to do? From the flight schools that I have been talking to it is:

Canada- 10 hours instrument with 5 hours of that being ok to do in the sim.

FAA- 5 hours night and 5 hours instrument.

With the FAA I did read somewhere that it was only 2 hours night with a NAV over 50nm? and that the instrument time can be done in the sim? I am hoping some one can shine some light on those 2 things of me.

Thanks for your help in advance.

I believe for CPLH in the USA you also need more than the 105/115hrs that we do here in Australia.

But you may be well past that. Just something I have heard. I believe it is 150hrs for CPLH under FAA

What companies have you been talking to?
I spoke with Hillsborough in Portland, they where pretty helpful.

Read the FAA CFRs, https://www.ecfr.gov/cgi-bin/retrieveECFR?gp=&r=PART&n=14y2.0.1.1.2 for a detailed review of what you need.
