My name is Thomas and I am new to this forum.
Got my PPL-H just shortly on the R44 but have the chance to fly a Bell47 here in Germany.
I need to get an EASA Type rating for Bell47 and would like to know if anybody knows about an organisation which offers this in the USA or Canada.

Thank you in advance and happy new year.

USA doesnt have type ratings unless the helicopter is over 12500lbs. In Canada type ratings are issued and You can obtain a Bell 47 type rating in around 5hours of air time plus some ground instruction. However you will need to convert your EASA to TC first. Contact Chinook Helicopters in Abbotsford BC one hour east of Vancouver. They still operate the 47 as a primary instructor.

When life's path is steep keep your mind even.

Thank you for your information, but this would be a very complicated way.

I will keep you posted on my progress to become a real whirlybird.

Happy New Year!
