Find out about all aspects of helicopter flight with this fantastic helicopter flying lesson, available at locations across the UK. You’ll receive expert guidance and tuition from an experienced pilot during your 20 minute lesson, which is split into three 6/7 minute sessions – one as a navigator, one as an observer and one as a pilot, including a hands-on hover challenge. Your time piloting the helicopter can count towards a private pilot's licence if you wish to take further lessons in future.
Upon arrival your friendly and experienced instructor will give you a full safety briefing, along with a discussion on effects of controls and theory of flight. Your 20 minute flight will consist of three legs of 6/7 minutes - one leg as pilot, one as navigator and one as observer – including a hover challenge. You will receive a de-brief on landing. The pilot leg can count towards your pilot’s licence, and spectators are welcome and can take photgraphs. This package includes public liability insurance, and at the end of your experience you will receive a signed flight certificate.
