First Flight in a Helicopter
Helicopter trial introductory flight means that you have the chance to take over the controls and fly the helicopter under the careful guidance of our experienced instructors. We do multiple introductory flights a week and we welcome anyone who wants to have a go. There are no prerequisites - If you can reach all the controls in your average car, you can book a trial flight in a helicopter.Have you ever wanted to take the controls of a helicopter and fly? It's an amazing feeling. A trial lesson is an air experience flight, designed to do exactly that, and it will leave you buzzing for days!
It could be your first step in a change of career, or you may simply want to have a go for the challenge and enjoyment of it. Either way, it's a great opportunity to learn the basics of how a helicopter flies, and experience how it feels to fly it!
We offer a wide range of trial lesson options, both as gift vouchers to treat someone special (or even to treat yourself!) or alternatively you can give us a call and make a booking for the date of your choice. If flying a helicopter has been a lifelong ambition, why not give it a try?
The options range from hover challenge in the Guimbal Cabri G2, or a trial flight in the Robinson R22, to a whole hour in our 4 seat R44 helicopter where you can fly around some great local landmarks and get a bird's eye view of the world.
30 minute and 60 minute trial lesson bookings can be made 7 days a week. (Subject to availability)
If one session is not enough, and you want to take up a challenge of becoming a Helicopter Pilot we recommend the PPL (Private Pilots Licence), with a PPL you will be able to fly a helicopter that you are rated on with non paying passengers. If then you decide that you want to become a professional helicopter pilot, we have a CPL (Commercial Pilots Licence) package that prepares you to start your career as a fully trained Helicopter Pilot.
If you would like to discuss all the options available before you book, just give us a call on (02) 9708 6666, and we'd be more than happy to talk you through the packages available and answer any of your questions.
