Which Aircraft Require TR To Fly (JAA)?

Sat Jan 23, 2010 11:19 pm

I know about USA, turbojets, over 12500 lbs weight and FAA specified aircraft?

But what about in Europe and rest of the world.
For example my colleague went training recently for TBM 850 rating, I think I even heard of Piper Meridian type rating?

Class ratings exist for SEP, MEP, TMG and some SET*. All others require a type rating. The TBM 850 does not require a type rating (it's included in the SET class), only differential training. The PA46, OTOH, requires a type rating.

The list can be found here:

SEP = Single Engine Piston
MEP = Multi Engine Piston
TMG = Touring Motor Glider
SET = Single Engine Turboprop
PA46 = Piper Malibu

Thanks for links, very useful.

What is the trianing for SET like? Is SET the same as SE (single engine)?

As far as I can tell, the only differences between SEP and SET training are the aircraft specifics: high performance, engine differences, pressurized cabin, etc. Even the skill test program is the same - except that you must demonstrate that you can handle the turboprop.

Furthermore, you need at least 200 hours PIC (if I'm not mistaken) for SET, and IR is highly recommended (I don't know anyone flying a turboprop without IR rating).
