Find out what it's like to pilot an amazing aircraft that can fly forwards, backwards, sideways or just hover on the spot as you take the controls for the ultimate airborne voyage of discovery.
From the minute you take off to the second you land, helicopter flying is a graceful and unforgettable experience. Start with a ground briefing where you'll be given a lesson on the effects of control before putting on your headset ready for take off. Your heart will race as the blades begin to spin and you are lifted gracefully into the air, before cutting through the clouds at up to 120mph. Experience the rush of soaring to heights of up to 1000 feet with your hands at the controls of a Robinson R22.
The views will amaze you and the feeling of total freedom that makes helicopter flying so addictive will live with you forever.
This hands on flying lesson showcases the full spectrum of helicopter maneuvers with you in control wherever possible. You will interact with the pilot via the headset and be able to guide the helicopter using a dual control system.
You should be in moderately good health and weigh less than 240lb to enjoy this experience.
Helicopter flying lessons are conducted 7 days a week from morning until sunset. Flying is weather dependent and may be postponed in adverse conditions. If your flight does not go ahead, a mutually convenient alternative date will be arranged with you.
Your flying lesson begins with a one-on-one ground school lesson with a Certified Flight Instructor in the classroom.
Following ground school, you and your instructor will head out to the flight line where you will receive step-by-step instruction on aircraft pre-flight principles.
Then, climb aboard a Robinson R22 helicopter and seize the controls. Experience what it's like to attempt to control, hover and fly the helicopter straight and level. Take-off for a short flight around the area with your instructor
