Cabri G2 Type Rating

Cabri G2 Type Rating

The Cabri G2 has been certified under EASA for over 10 years now and is becoming increasingly popular all across the world. If you want to fly a sleek, modern, efficient aircraft, this is the one for you!

We have a six Cabri G2 helicopters on our fleet with five in the UK and one in the US. There are great opportunities as you move forward in your career to work on the Cabri both commercially and through instruction once you qualify as a flight instructor. Not only this, but the Cabri has remarkable similarities to some larger aircraft so once again, this course will help prepare you and allow you to build experience on a different type of aircraft.

After completing this course, you will not only be able to fly the aircraft yourself in the UK, but this will also open up the opportunity to fly our US-registered Cabri from our facilities in Winter Haven, Florida. To find out more about this opportunity, visit our Florida page.
