Hartwig Air Releases PA31 and BE55 Type Training and ICUS programs

Hartwig air is very excited to announce PA31 and BE55 training with ICUS time!

The ICUS programs are aimed at those who have completed their multi-engine endorsement and instrument rating and want to gain extra hours in their logbook as well as more hands-on experience in a charter operation.

What is ICUS?

ICUS or In Command Under Supervision is where you are performing the duties and functions of a pilot in command under the supervision of a pilot in command authorised by the operator of the aircraft for that purpose.

The Aircraft

This is being offered in 2 of our aircraft, Beechcraft Baron BE55 and Piper Chieftain PA31. Both of these aircraft are regularly used in Hartwig Air’s charter operations and both are used throughout the charter industry in Australia due to their flexibility to get in and out of short rural strips.

For those who have the endorsement but don’t have time on the aircraft type, we are offering training packages to get you familiar with the aircraft type then jump onto one of our charter operations to do some ICUS time.
