Bell 206 Type Course

Recommended Posts

West Point Helicopter Industry Services now has an approved Bell 206 and B206L diferences course available.

Transport Canada requires a seperate "L" endorsement for the basic 206 type course.

They have a course starting October 12th, 2009.

If you need any more info contact www.westpointheli.com

Is that a new requirement? I had previously thought that since the 206 type course was under the same type certificate # as the L (H-92) that no differences course was actually required. Can you clarify?

 

Cheers

I do believe it's a marketing tactic! Saw another thread on another forum saying the same thing and telling people to contact Westpoint! I have been signing out "L" models on my 206 endorsement for years now with no problems!

Ok guys (and gals); you need to re-read CARs 571.11 and AN C012, and re-read it again to minimize confusion. Basically, as we all understand, the TC approved type course for the airframe and engine is the minimum. As the type certificate for the airframe (206A/B/L...) is H-92 and engine (250-C20) is E4CE and (250-C30) is E1GL, to hold ACA and certify the Bell 206 "Series"; my understanding would be that one would require a TC approved Bell 206 airframe course, TC approved Rolls Royce 250-C20 course, and TC approved Rolls Royce 250-C30 course, with "differences training" covering the 206L. There is nothing that I can find saying the differences training must be TC approved, however as with all training, the corriculum must be defined, and documented.

 

The only shortcut, and it's not a shortcut anymore, is if you held an AME license on type (series) pre August 1999, you could be grandfathered :)

 

I hope this helps clear the smog a bit.

 

:rolleyes:

So do you need training on the c28 and c20r in addition, since all of them are still 250 series...

 

If this is true it would've been nice for TC to let us know, eh?!? Maybe Grumpy can give us a reference link...?
