Type Rating Cost: Budgeting for Training

The type rating cost information below is primarily gathered from a website called mullers.net. You can visit them here. Type rating and recurrent cost information is floating around but is subject to change on a yearly basis. Training can be expensive and you must plan ahead for the cost.

Part 61.85 of the FAR’s tell you that a part 91 pilot can go for up to 2 years in one aircraft without recurrent training and still be “current” as long as he/she attends another same category training course within a 1 year period of the former aircrafts initial training date.

With current rates of travel and hotel, I generally budget 10-20% over the cost of the actual  training rate (read: verified) with a minimum of $2000 set aside for transport and hotel. A monthly positive cash reserve is useful here as it makes saving at the last minute unnecessary. The last thing you want is to have to hold off on bills so you can go to training.
