I am starting my add on training soon in a Robinson and had a question I hope someone could answer for me...
SFAR 73 states, in part, :
For Students without Helicopter Rating
- Before first flight: Awareness training and logbook endorsement.
- Before logging PIC time: 10 hours of dual instruction and a logbook endorsement (R-44 students can credit 5 hours of R-22 time).
- Before your solo: 20 hours of dual instruction in that particular model and a logbook endorsement, good for 90 days, showing you’ve received training in enhanced autorotations, RPM control without the governor, low RPM and recovery, and effects of low g & recovery.
So my question is, what does "in that particular model" mean? Does 'model' mean 'Robinson' overall, or does that mean a 22 or 44 specifically?
For cost reasons, i was wanting to start and get @10 hours in a 22 before switching to a 44 but don't want to need an additional 20 hours dual to be able to solo in the 44 after I have already received 10 in the 22.
Hope that makes sense!
