Helicopter Eurocopter EC120B – type rating

In accordance with EASA standards: PART-FCL

The type rating for the Eurocopter EC120B helicopter authorizes the pilot to fly the Eurocopter EC120B helicopter. The goal of the training course is to acquire theoretical knowledge and practical skills necessary to obtain the type rating for the Eurocopter EC120B helicopter, i.e., the ability to operate all helicopter equipment and fully exercise the authority of the pilot in command under VFR (visual flight rules) conditions.



Graduates of the type rating for the Eurocopter EC120B helicopter can conduct private or commercial flights according to the privileges of their license with the EUROCOPTER EC 120 B Single Turbine Engine (SET) under VFR conditions.


Theoretical Training

Theoretical training in the EC120B – type training course is individual and precedes flight training.

  • Total hours of theoretical training: 18:30 hours*

*Holders of a type rating for a single-engine turbine helicopter (SET) have their theoretical training reduced to 16:30 hours. If the training applicant is already qualified on a Eurocopter helicopter equipped with VEMD (e.g., EC 130 B4 or AS 350 B2 and B3), the theoretical training can be reduced by 3 hours.

Flight Training

  • Initial flight training: 5 hours
  • Additional flight training: 3 hours*

*Training intended for holders of a type rating for a single-engine turbine helicopter (SET), who can count 2 hours towards the required total length of initial training (5 hours).

The price you will have to pay to learn to fly and obtain a pilot’s license varies from person to person and depends on many factors. The price should not be the main factor in deciding where to get your pilot’s license. When it comes to flight training, cheap is rarely good.

Basic factors affecting the cost of training:

  • Your goals in aviation
  • Type of aircraft for training with regard to goals
  • How much time can I devote to training


Your goals in flying have a significant impact on how your overall flight training will be conducted. If you want to fly only recreationally, training in an aircraft with lighter avionics will be significantly cheaper than compared to a businessman or future professional pilot.

The price of pilot training for individual pilot licenses is set in connection with the number of flight hours in the curriculum, the time of ground preparations, and theoretical instruction in the classroom. Further, it is necessary to count additional expenses for landing and other airport fees and fees for exams at authorities and payments for obtaining necessary permits for training.
