Schedule 9   CPL(H) training for paragraph 61.615 (1B) (b) (non-integrated training courses)

          1     For paragraph 61.615 (1B) (b), the minimum requirements for an applicant for the CPL(H) who has not completed an integrated training course are as follows:

(a)   at least 105 hours of flight training must be completed in no more than 2 types or models of helicopter;

(b)   for paragraph (a):

             (i)   the first 15 hours must be completed in 1 of the types or models of helicopter mentioned in paragraph (a);

            (ii)   at least 20 hours must be completed in each type or model of helicopter mentioned in paragraph (a);

           (iii)   at least 40 hours must be completed as dual flight training in any of the types or models of helicopter mentioned in paragraph (a);

           (iv)   at least 25 hours must be completed as pilot in command (but not as cross-country flight time) in any of the types or models of helicopter mentioned in paragraph (a);

            (v)   the final 30 hours of flight training actually undertaken must be completed within the 3 months immediately before the flight test.

Note   Additional flight training may be undertaken, including tethered helicopter flight training and flight training in additional types of helicopter.

          2     Subject to clause 3, for paragraph 1 (a), a type or model of a helicopter means the single-engine helicopter, or 1 of the single-engine helicopters, mentioned by name in a single cell of column 2 of Schedule 14 of the Prescription of aircraft and ratings — CASR Part 61 Instrument, of the Edition that is in force at the time of the particular flight training (the relevant Prescription instrument).

Note 1   The Prescription of aircraft and ratings — CASR Part 61 (Edition 5) Instrument 2018 is the Edition of the prescription instrument that is in force immediately before the end of 31 August 2018. It is a legislative instrument, freely available on the Federal Register of Legislation. If and when a prescription instrument is superceded by a later edition, the earlier edition remains freely available on the Federal Register of Legislation.

Note 2   Although, for Schedule 14 of the relevant Prescription instrument, more than 1 type or model of helicopter in a single cell of column 2 may attract the same type rating on a pilot licence, each type or model of helicopter mentioned in a single cell of column 2 is to be considered a different type or model of helicopter for clause 1.

          3     Despite subsection 2, the 2 helicopter types or models mentioned in the first cell of column 2 of Schedule 14 of the relevant Prescription instrument for the Sikorsky Aircraft Corp may be treated interchangeably as a single type or model.

Note   These are the Hughes 269 (all piston engine models) and the Schweizer 300 (all piston engine models).
