(If you weigh over 200 lbs. or your height and weight configuration interferes with the Robinson R22 flight controls you must take all training in the Robinson R44.  If you are under 200 lbs., and you are taking your Private and or Commercial training in the R22, some long cross country flights will need to be performed in the Robinson R44 due to the fuel limitations of the Robinson R22 based on gross weight.  The Instrument course and Instrument Instructor course are only available in the Robinson R44.)

** Minimum Turbine hours required are 10 hours in the Robinson R66 & BH206.  If you have 1000 or more hours PIC then only 5 hours is required in each.
