Feeling adventurous? This incredible away day is a must for anyone wanting to experience the thrill of really controlling a helicopter. Once in the air, you will have the chance to fly the helicopter yourself, while taking in an amazing bird's eye view of the beautiful Midlands countryside. Your training will take place in a two-seat Robinson R22, and this day is highly recommended for those seriously considering acquiring their Private Pilot's License (Helicopters).
The ‘Away Day' package includes: * Pre and post flight ground briefings. * Tea or coffee during a brief introduction to the controls. * Two hours of flying, split into two or three flights. * A commemorative log book. The log book will detail your flight and can be used to keep track of any future helicopter lessons. All flying time in a logbook can be put towards the 45 hour minimum which is required by the CAA in order to gain a PPL (H).All flight time counts towards a helicopter license should you decide to continue training.

Helicopter Trial Lesson Away Day in the East Midlands
My wife bought me this helicopter flying lesson set for my 30th birthday because I'd always wanted to fly. The flying school was fantastic especially my instructor and I had a perfect introduction to what I'd need for my Private Pilot's Licence. Ideal for others like me that want to learn to fly a 'copter but don't know where to start.
