So there is no flying at the course? Its just classroom? I just finished my CFI in an R-22. I only have 10.2 hrs in one. All of my other flying is in the MD500E (interesting transition!) But Id love to start instructing once I get my 50hrs in R22s.
From what I know from the Robinson's website, http://robinsonheli....ety_course.html there is one hour of flight, and 3.5 days of ground (one of which is devoted to maintenance and preflighting, the rest 2.5 is classroom). The requirements to attend are: 3 hours in a Robinson, of which 1 hour flown within last 30 days; have one (any) rating above PPL, and be able to understand English. Also a current medical is obviously required.
Now as far as the cost is concerned, it is $400 for the R22, which is pretty good deal, considering that you would pay $250 to rent one, any way, so for the course itself you pay pretty much $150. They also provide lunch and breakfast (I think) on three days, so that makes it even more cost-effective. I will have more accurate info though once I go through the course, since now I am just sharing what I have read/heard.
