Flying a helicopter incorporates 3 different key factors: flying, navigation and observation. This three stage trail lesson will give you the opportunity to try all three and help you with the key skills needed to get your own pilot's licence!
Your lesson is preceded by a short flight briefing with an experienced instructor who will explain all aspects of the flight, including the effects of the controls and how a helicopter flies. Once airborne you will then be allowed to take the controls and actually fly the helicopter! After this, you will be a passenger for the next two flights, this will enable you to develop the skills of navigation and observation.

What was the name of the venue where your experience took place? Daedalus Airport
I was gifted this as a Christmas present and had a great time. Despite being late they completely understood and we're happy to wait 30 minutes when they didn't have to. The pilot was brilliant and was very friendly giving us lots of information about the vehicle and the surrounding areas. The airfield was easy to find and there was very little waiting and paperwork (the boring stuff). Thoroughly enjoying.

Bought for me as a birthday present from my husband, was super excited to fly a helicopter at 7.5months pregnant! Great team at the flying school, really informative. Only downside is we didn’t get to do the navigation element as outlined in the experience description.
