It is not as difficult as many people believe to add a helicopter rating to your fixed wing license. Many fixed wing pilots want to continue their flight education and add a helicopter rating, here at Harbor Helicopters Northwest we will do our best to make it as efficient and cost effective as possible.
Flying a helicopter requires a different set of skills than flying an airplane. Many fixed wing pilots experience some initial difficulty adapting what they already know about flying to a helicopter. Some of the ingrained reactions in a fixed wing pilot are inappropriate to rotary wing flight, and it can take some extra flight time for pilots to "break" those old habits.
The requirements vary depending on which license you are trying to earn, so click on the appropriate one below, and see how easy it can be to add a rotorcraft rating!
