Helicopter Lessons

Help them feel the thrill of flight with a once-in-a-lifetime helicopter piloting lesson. Zipping through the air in one of these agile vehicles is sure to be an experience they'll never forget, especially with their hands on the controls!

We offer over a dozen ways to enjoy the adventure of a ride in one of these classic machines, even for younger would-be pilots-some lessons are suitable for those as young as 12, so your favourite kid can impress all their friends with their newly acquired skills years before they even have a driving licence!

At Buyagift, we want to make sure everyone can enjoy the adrenaline rush of soaring through the air, no matter where they're located, so we've scouted helicopter schools all over Britain. Safety is our first priority, so all of our helicopter flying lessons are conducted by trained professionals, including a full safety briefing and hands-on tuition. You'll feel at ease when you gift the gift of flight, knowing that your loved one will be in good hands.

Not only that, but they'll be in a top-of-the-line aircraft, and you'll have options ranging from a 30-minute flight to a full-day training experience. Maybe you want to let them test out a budding interest in helicopters, or face a fear of flying by dipping their toes into the world of aviation. Our longer courses are fantastic for more serious pilots (but are open to everyone), because they provide you with a completion certificate that allows you to put your training time toward earning a full pilot's licence. We even have a tactical helicopter flying lesson, where participants will learn not only the skills of piloting, but also vital navigational skills. They can round off their trip with some time to sit back, relax, and enjoy the view, as the instructor takes the controls and treats them to a scenic tour of the local area.

Perhaps you want to have a special day out with a child, best friend, or loved one, or give an exciting gift to the couple in your life. We offer helicopter lessons specially designed for two people in a larger aircraft, and with time for each of you to get a turn at the controls. This is a gift sure to create memories that will last forever-so why not make sure they're shared? You'll love giving the gift of quality time with our two-person helicopter experience days, and isn't that what gift-giving is all about? Make some memories-and lots of smiles-today!

You can shop with confidence at Buyagift, because we offer free exchanges on all of our one-of-a-kind experience days-so if it turns out that helicopters aren't for them, for any reason, you can exchange your experience voucher for the day out of their dreams. No fees, and no worries! We also look out for the environment, offsetting carbon emissions caused by any of our experience days, so you can give a helicopter lesson to your favourite budding pilot without guilt.
