Dan Falconer completes R44 type rating September 2013

Congratulations to Dan for completing the R44 type rating course. Dan can now hire the R44 for his own leisure, taking advantage of the larger and faster aircraft to take friends and family up with him to visit private sites, hotels or just up and around for fun.

Dan progressed through the private pilot’s licence with Phoenix, flying our fleet of Robinson R22’s during his training. After completing the PPL course Dan continued to fly our fleet of R22’s on our self-fly hire scheme, building valuable experience as pilot in command and taking friends and family up with him. Dan has now taken his flying to the next level by completing the R44 type rating course. The R44 is the bigger faster brother of the R22; this means it can take 3 passengers as well as the pilot and cruise at 110knots. This extra speed and space makes the R44 a great machine for private pilots to take their friends up with them and visit new places or just too simply fly around in the local area.
