A Type Rating is an aircraft certification granted by aviation authorities for pilots who have finished training and passed testing on a specific aircraft type. A type rating certification allows pilots to operate various types of aircraft. Further recertification is required to maintain the type rating every 6 to 12 months.
A type rating can be either a single-engine type rating or a multi-engine type rating. When a type rating certification is obtained, a pilot is limited to flying within the parameters of the certification - either single-engine or multi-engine. This also applies to the type of aircraft the type rating has been issued for.
A pilot must complete an approved training program and pass a written and practical test to obtain a type rating certification. Elevate Aviation has been approved to provide the necessary training required for many types of type rating certifications. The Type Rating for the SF50 requires a week of ground class & simulator training followed by five simulator sessions the following week. It culminates in a Checkride performed in the Full-Motion Simulator to receive the type rating certification.
Elevate Aviation offers a variety of top-rated flight training programs, including type rating courses. With highly capable and experienced flight instructors, you can receive the pre-training needed to help obtain the type rating you need to fly the aircraft of your choice. We can help you prepare to pass your Type Rating.
