Making or planning to make the military to civilian transition? Don't make the same mistakes I have - I've made a lot of them so it's a long one. Everything in here is based on personal opinion and experience. Just hoping to help my fellow veterans.
OK, reading the regs and came up with a good question: This is 14CFR-61.109 (superfluous wording removed for space - but available here: What I'm unclear on, is whether all 40 of what's listed in the base [c] section must be done in helicopters, or if only what's listed in subsections 1-4 are required in helicopters. Technically, I could get a few hours training in the areas listed in 61.107 (3-4 hours flight time), then do 10 solo, then 3 more with an instructor and be done... right? Or do I have to do 20-30 dual in a heli, 10-20 solo, and then be eligible for a checkride? Just curious what the interpretation of the reg is. Regards, Texan
