Overview

Fulfil your fantasies of soaring through the sky in an awesome helicopter with this spectacular flying introduction. For anyone with an interest in helicopters and aviation, this experience includes one-to-one tuition during a flying lesson and hover challenge, plus a tour of the hanger and a talk from an enthusiastic instructor, who'll tell you all about being a commercial pilot. You’ll start your day at 9am, with a briefing and refreshments. Your instructor will take you and up to seven other participants through the workings of the helicopters, their controls, history and be on hand, ready to answer any of your burning questions.

This four hour experience also includes lunch and a certificate to take home.
