Overview

Come to Gloucestershire Airport for an exciting helicopter flight over the surrounding countryside. Meet the pilot on the ground who will give a brief on safety and flying techniques before boarding. Then climb into a dual-controlled training helicopter which will immediately impress with its vertical take-off. These craft are incredibly manoeuvrable and can turn on a pin forward, backward or sideways. At the pilot's discretion, confident learners can take over the controls, to really understand what it's like to command a flying machine.

In a Nutshell
  • Expert instruction from a qualified pilot
  • Backwards, forwards, sideways, hovering
