Tactical Helicopter Flying Lesson
In a nutshell
- Short safety and technical briefing
- Three flying legs of 6 to 7 minutes each
- Take on the role of a navigator, observer and pilot
Flying is not just about piloting an aircraft well - navigation and observation are two equally important parts. This helicopter trial lesson will allow you to experience the thrill of flying and will set you on your way with the key skill needed to get your own pilot's licence!
Your lesson is preceded by a short flight briefing with an instructor who will explain all aspects of the flight including the effects of controls and how a helicopter flies. You will then be allowed to take the controls and actually fly the aircraft. Spend up to 20 minutes in the air, both as a pilot and a passenger, split between three separate flights.
A trial lesson will give an insight into the thrills of flying and you will receive a certificate signed by the instructor.
A truly fabulous gift for anyone of any age and also a perfect introduction to flying for those who have always wanted to try flying a helicopter.
