The RH-44 is a single-engine four-seat light helicopter with a semi-rigid two-bladed main rotor, a two-bladed tail rotor, and a skid landing gear.
WHY WE CHOSE THIS HELICOPTER
We use an RH-44 helicopter as one of our training helicopters because it is a reliable and safe aircraft, perfect for training. This aircraft is less expensive to operate than the Bell 206, but you get the same training skills and benefits. Being a 4 seater aircraft, you get the benefit of riding in the back seat at no extra cost with other students which is a great learning tool! Riding as a passenger during navigations, confines, Mountain Courses, and many more exercises allow the student to increase their flight knowledge. Students can take in a lot more when not in the hot seat. Also, you can get much longer cross country trips due to the aircraft speed, promoting more in-depth navigations.
This aircraft is most likely going to be the one of the first aircraft you will fly in today's job market. Start your career off right and get some flight experience on our RH-44 helicopter today!
