Helicopter trial lesson
30 minute trial lesson -R44
A 30 minute lesson in an R44 Helicopter. After a short preflight briefing you will take to the air for your flight. Once airborne you will get the opportunity to take the controls and fly the aircraft. Includes Certificate of Flight

This experience will last a total of approx. 60 minutes, with approx. 30 minutes spent in the air. (We don't compromise on your time in the air. When comparing us with others, check the small print and the time actually spent in the air.)

What's included

On arrival you will be greeted by a training co-ordinator who will personally go through the event with you.
Your flying lesson will start with watching a pre-flight video and a briefing from your instructor which will cover the flight path you will be taking and an introduction to some of the controls.
Once in the helicopter, your flight starts from the time the engine turns over.
You will be given headphones so that you can hear conversations between your instructor and air traffic control, and so that you can talk with your instructor.
Then the part you have been waiting for - you will take to the skies and experience the art of piloting a helicopter.
Once in the air, you will be able to take the controls but your pilot will generally undertake the take-off and landing.
The helicopter is a remarkable aircraft and will astound you with its versatility.
On completion you will have a short post-flight briefing and receive a certificate of flight.
Don't forget time spent on your trial lesson can be logged and used towards the hours needed to learn to fly.
Two friends/relatives with an interest in aviation may accompany you on the flight.
