Good luck with that one!
I've recently tried all the main UK companies who supposedly offer the course and it appears they couldnt be less interested!
When I phoned them I got plenty of "dont know about IR courses, you need to speak to such and such who isn't here now, but if you leave your number they will call you back", needless to say, i'm still waiting on most of the "captain such and such" types to ring me back weeks later....
Now unless im missing something here an IR(H) in th UK costs a lot of money, you would think companies who offer the course would be knocking down your door to get you to sign up??? apparently not!
1. After several phone calls, most never rang back!
2. One operator advertises the IR(H) course but does not actually provide it!
3. One operator after several calls managed to send me a brochure a few weeks later advertising their "Fixed Wing First Officer Training Program"
Company names witheld to save them from embarrassment...
Any wonder a lot of UK pilots go the FAA route then convert back to JAA...
One notable exception is a SW UK based operator with red helicopters who have responded positvely.
I feel better now with that off my chest
