Sling Rating

Sling / Longline

Sling ratings are for pilots who will be operating in the external load environment or who would like to increase their skill set.


This course has no minimum hour requirement and as such is competency based training. Depending on the experience and ability of the pilot, allow approximately 5 hours.

For the pilot to learn the basics of picking up the load, controlling the load in a hover, flying a circuit and putting the load on the ground, the flying sequence will begin on a 50 foot sling.  Once these sequences are conducted to a safe and reasonable standard, a 100 foot and 150 foot line are introduced.


This rating can be conducted in an R44, MD500, AS350 and Bell 206 helicopters.

External helicopters can be used on request.


The cost will depend on aircraft type.  Please contact us on +61 7 3385 9535 for a price.
