  • 500 hours of rotor wing turbine time
  • 200 hours of cross-country flight time, at least 50 hours of which were at night

  • 50 hours total actual or hood instrument time in flight and in category (simulator time only counts if it is in a certified Level D FSTD)


ROTOR-WING INSTRUMENT FLIGHT RULES (IFR) PROGRAM:
