Robinson Safety Course -2021 (Aus or NZ)

Postby Big Wave » Wed Jan 13 2021, 02:12

Gday all,

I’m keen to complete the RSC this year, preferably in Aus, but can travel to NZ. Heliflite Bankstown aren’t planning on facilitating one this year due COVID.

Any leads would be appreciated.

Cheers

Be careful re your reasoning. FAA don’t care about it unless you completed it in Torrance, CA.

Australian Robinson Helicopter Numbers in January 2021

According to Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) data, current to 24 Jan 2021, the Australian helicopter fleet numbers 2,338. This makes Australia the fourth largest helicopter operator in the world. The Robinson Helicopter Company dominates the Australian register with 1,239 machines, or 52% of all helicopter registrations.

Looking back to 30 Jun 2020, the CASA Annual Report stated the Australian helicopter register had 2,335 listed. The fleet then consisted of 1,338 single engine piston and 628 single engine turbine helicopters. Multiengine machines below 5,700 kg totalled 185 and the heavier twin engine rotorcraft above 5,700 kg were 81. Amateur built were shown as 103.

It appears the Australian register has only increased by three helicopters over seven months, effectively a continuation of an almost zero growth over the past eighteen months. By comparison, the general aviation aeroplane listings are still in a negative growth situation.

Due to increasing demand for cattle as shown by current firm prices, strong export orders and the widespread heavy rain in most drought areas indicates a busy year for the mustering industry. But the COVID-19 concessions for check and training are now about to expire. Both industry and the regulator have warned of a possible pilot shortage (and technical staff) as we enter the 2021 mustering season. These shortages will be caused, in part, by the training industry being not able to requalify the workforce in sufficient time to cope with the rural industry and the expansion of our tourist activities in remote areas.

Robinson Helicopter Fleet – Update January 2021. Robinson R22 and R44 piston engine numbers make up 85% of the Australian piston fleet. A very large percentage of the Robinson fleet are used for cattle mustering in northern regions of Australia. Federal statistics state the mustering fleet probably logs more hours than all other operations combined. Mustering operations create jobs for many of the 4,400 licensed helicopter pilots in Australia.

Data current to 24 Jan 2021 shows Robinson registrations make up 1,238 of the 2,388 helicopters (52%).

Robinson R22 models. R22 – 11, R22A – 4, R22B – 615 and R22M – 9. A total of 639.

Robinson R44 models. R44 – 332 and R44 II – 236. A total R44 = 568.

Robinson R66 models. There are 32 on the register.

Registrations by state and territories

Robinson R22 (639). ACT – Nil, NSW – 86, NT – 107, QLD – 299, SA – 7, TAS – Nil, VIC – 14 and WA – 126.

Robinson R44 (568). ACT – 4, NSW – 131, NT – 62, QLD – 193, SA – 17, TAS – 9, VIC – 85 and
WA – 67.

This data has been shared by Rotorcraft Asia-Pacific e-News. They are currently assisting others with the provision of Robinson Safety Courses to areas needing of refresher and currency training. The new courses have been upgraded to cover single pilot CRM (Human Factors) applicable to wire avoidance in low level operations. More info: Editor +61 (0) 0415 641 774. Brisbane time UTC+10

Start of Australian Robinson Helicopter Safety Courses for 2021

V2 Helicopters is providing the first of their 2021 pre-muster and tourism focussed Robinson Helicopter Safety courses at Archerfield, Qld on Sat 20 to Sun 21 February. The courses are being conducted by Rotorcraft Asia-Pacific (Facilitator - Rob Rich). V2 Helicopters are the course hosts. Post course Helicopter Flight Reviews, endorsements other mandatory check rides can be provided by V2 Helicopters. (Coordinator - Lenny Parratt).

The insurance industry has advised the general aviation industry that global insurance rates have been steadily increasing. Insurance providers claim this is due to the increasing accident rates and the resulting cost of claims becoming inflated by extra legal costs and tougher compensation settlements.

The new Robinson Helicopter Safety Courses will now include modules on low level wire avoidance and associated single pilot CRM human factors. This is becoming a requirement for some insurance companies. Many cattle mustering clients have made this upgraded training compulsory for pilots operating helicopters on their mustering contracts. (Certificate provided). The RSC will include accident-avoidance techniques, technical updates and tips from experienced tourist pilots and instructors. This is to ensure attendees heading out to their helicopter scenic and mustering jobs are fully refreshed, current and aviation business wise.

The two-day classroom training is $390 incl GST. A course manual and other documents will be provided. Fee includes morning and afternoon teas, and healthy light lunches.
Bookings are essential. Due to limited room size, we suggest you book as soon as possible.
