Typical upgrade time to Captain in dual piloted Helos

Anyone know the typical upgrade time from FO to CPT for dual pilot Helos?

 

My scenario is a guy with 3000+ military turbine helo hours (Heavy? 20K+ lbs.) but hasn't flown them in 6+ years. Been flying Beech King Air 200 since then (Boring!).

In most cases, previous time has no bearing. It's usually based on company seniority, and varies from company to company, and from time to time. It once took ~15 years to upgrade to SIC, and I've known SICs to spend decades before upgrading, but it's moving much faster now. As a guess, I would think 3 years or so, but the situation is so volatile that it's really impossible to say. Talk to the companies you're interested in and get an estimate from them, because it's so different between them.
