206 endo Queensland

Postby andronicus » Fri Jun 12 2015, 01:56

Looking into doing an initial turbine rating on a 206 in the Queensland area, whats involved in the initial rating over there?. Any info on schools or instructors to hunt out would be much appreciated... I have the exam credit from a few years back in NZ so have to weigh up weather I get it done before I come over or when I arrive.
Cheers

Airways Aviation have two jetty's, one at each base. PHS on the Gold Coast has an experienced 206 pilot but as far as I know no 206 at their GC base. I know you're looking at Qld, but I'd highly recommend doing the endo with Roland Pagels, he's in Lismore with a 206. He did most of my licence, including my 206 endo. As long as you're not under time pressure, he's an excellent instructor.

Being 1,852,642 km² Queensland is a rather large area.
You generally don't have to worry about weather too much as its generally pretty good

If your nz exam credit is more than 3 yrs old it'll have expired. Might be easier to get it done here in nz. Ardmore helicopters is a good school.

On the other hand if you have a job in the bag doing your turbine rating in the area you will fly would knock off two birds with one stone. Get familiar with your ops area and get your rating

Aeropower is a very good school, and you will get a good type end. IMO you're better off going somewhere that works the type you want to fly. Air Work in Caboolture do and Woodh there is a wealth of knowledge and certainly knows how to fly a jet ranger. It's also probably cheaper as they use Kiowas which can also help your endorsement as they have less power than the average Jet Banger.

Good luck

Cheers guys.

Hello pilots...once again your post is both informative and hilarious. I'm not sure if it's 100% accurate because I couldn't give a single fu$k to check.

P.S. You forgot to put a full stop at the end.

I don't think you can do rating in a Kiowa because under Part 61 the entry rating must be B206. Once rated on B206 you are then covered on Kiowa once competent on any differences.

Oh lighten up, everyone loves grammar Nazis. Don't they? And being part of the elite Slapper realm behoves us somewhat to at least appear smart, therefore good to make the effort at correct spelling... Or spelling correctly... Must say that modern day standards are slipping... :wink:
