Price Lear 60 type rating

Hi I got my quote from Flight Safety and they are charging 28.000 dollar for a initial LR-60 type rating and this is for 12h PIC flying. The price seams expensive?

That is horridly expensive. I did my rating with them in January this year and paid 24000US. It included much more than 12 hours though.

Companys get large discounts as opposed to people walking in off the street, so see if you can ask any favours with operators.

Also are you sure its not 24hrs in the sim?.. 12 as PIC an another 12 as SIC. If you havent flown in a multicrew aircraft, then being copilot is the hardest job as you will have your hair on fire running checklists etc.. so overall good experience.

Lear 60 type

FSI is expensive, but reallly good training, if you could find someone else who was interested in a rating and went in as a team, that might reduce the price a bit, but it is still painful. My last recurrent their was 21,300, (not a lear), hurts a bit doesn't it!

Heck get a 737 type for $6000 and an A-320 for $9000 and pocket the rest.

Cheers,

where??

On the face of it FSI are expensive, but you get what you pay for, and the recognition that you did your TR with the best.

Having been at both US and Farnbourgh sites I can honestly say that they are fantastic at what they do.

No... I don't work for them!
