Attention!

The legislator does not provide for a uniform license entry for the Agusta A109 type rating. If you purchase the Type Rating on the Agusta models A, A2 or C, you receive the authorization with the designation A109. However, these patterns are used in commercial flight operations only used sporadically.

For a type rating on an Agusta A109 with the designation E, S or SP you receive the model entry AW109 in your license. A later upgrade of a training course from A109 to AW109 (so-called differential training) is not possible - it is a completely independent type rating!

Currently several flight schools offer a type rating for the Agusta A109. At Heli Transair, you acquire the AW 109 license for helicopter types, which are frequently used in commercial aviation throughout Europe. Please consider this when making your decision for the right flight school.

If you already have a type rating for a multi-engine helicopter, you will get a relief for the purchase of another MET(H) type.
