Pilots finishing this training plan will be ready to enter the industry as safe and efficient helicopter pilots. Most pilots will complete the program with 200 hours in their logbook which is crucial for those who wish to instruct in the R22 and have to meet the FAA-required minimum of 200 flight hours. However we cannot guarantee a specific minimum for completion—everyone learns at their own rate.
