Enjoy the thrilling sensation of hovering above the ground and viewing the world from a completely fresh perspective with this fantastic 30 minute Helicopter Flying Lesson.
If you’ve ever wanted to take to the skies and take over the controls of a helicopter while cruising at a lofty height usually reserved only for birds, then this is the perfect gift.
Your helicopter lesson will begin with a safety briefing from an expert flying instructor, who will explain all the on-board technology and controls in the cockpit. Typically, your lesson will be taken in a dual control Robinson R22 helicopter, which has two seats - one for you and the other for the pilot.
After take-off and while maintaining a steady altitude, you’ll have the opportunity to take over the controls and practice manoeuvring and hovering the chopper under the watchful guidance of your pilot.
Even when you’ve safely landed and have two feet firmly on the ground, you will feel like you have your head in the clouds for days after this fantastic experience.
