Reach new heights on a helicopter flying lesson

From the minute you take off to the second you land, helicopter flying is a graceful and unforgettable experience. Take your seat in the ultimate aerial hovercraft for an exhilarating helicopter flying lesson that puts you in the pilot's seat!

Experience the rush of accelerating to over 120 mph at heights of up to 1000 feet with your hands at the controls of a Robinson R22. The vertical take-off is an incredible sensation and the thrills will continue as your pilot shows you how to move forward, backward, sideways or simply hover in the air. When you're ready, it's your turn to take the controls under expert guidance. You'll never forget the sensation of maneuvering this amazing flying machine!

Finish your adventure on the ultimate natural high and take home memories to last a lifetime.

  • 60 minute lesson including ground briefing
  • One to one instruction with FAA qualified pilot
  • Incredible views over breathtaking coastal New Jersey
  • Take the controls and pilot the helicopter yourself
  • Counts towards a pilot's license if you wish to continue training

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 200lb to enjoy this experience.

Helicopter flying lessons take place seven days a week, all year round. Helicopter flying is weather dependent and lessons may be postponed in the event of bad weather. If your lesson is postponed, a mutually suitable alternative date will be arranged with you.


- Introduction to your FAA qualified instructor

- Safety briefing

- Get into headphones and briefing on helicopter controls

- Your flight starts from the time the engine turns over. 

- Take the controls throughout your flight and carry out maneuvers under guidance

You will be given headphones so that you can hear conversations between your instructor and air traffic control and also talk with your instructor. 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.


Everything worked out great. Called to set activity with no problems at all. Highly recommend. Outstanding. although the flight went too quickly, would have loved to spend more time in the air.
