Overview

Enjoy a flying visit to the Hampshire airwaves with this 30 minute helicopter trial flight that sees budding pilots get a feel for the controls of a Robinson R22 helicopter and navigate their way through the open skies. Begin with a classroom briefing, which covers the effects of the helicopter controls and essential health and safety information. Then, hop into the cockpit along with a qualified instructor, for some hands-on action. Get off to a flying start, by mastering upper air handling, before focusing on low level exercises, such as how to hover. Begin with just one control at a time, then, once confident, take on multiple controls. Enjoy half an hour of flying, before descending back to Solent Airport. Time flies when you're having fun!
