The Robinson Instructor Pilot Standardization Course exemplifies Robinson's enduring dedication to helicopter training safety. This comprehensive program is designed to elevate helicopter flight training by equipping instructors with essential skills and knowledge to develop highly proficient pilots. Building on the expertise gained from its esteemed Safety Course, conducted for over 40 years, Robinson’s Instructor Pilot course continues to advance the standards of aviation training.

The course aims to elevate safety standards by implementing standardized teaching methods and techniques. It provides a thorough review of SFAR 73 awareness training and flight training requirements, along with an in-depth analysis of the major causes of accidents, including those that occur during training. The curriculum emphasizes the impact of human factors on training accidents. The flight training component standardizes instructional methods for SFAR 73 flight training requirements, covering autorotation, power failures, low RPM recognition and recovery, and RPM control without using the governor.

The RHC Instructor Standardization Course is a five-day program that combines classroom instruction with approximately three hours of flight training conducted by an experienced RHC Safety Pilot. The ground curriculum covers both the R22 and R44 models, while the flight training is provided in either the R22 or the R44, making the course type-specific.

The course follows a "pass or fail" structure. Participants who satisfactorily complete the curriculum will receive a graduation certificate.
