Overview

Experience a truly alternative way of flying with an exhilarating helicopter trial flight. After a comprehensive briefing on safety and important helicopter flying techniques, hop aboard a dual-controlled training helicopter accompanied by a fully qualified pilot. Enjoy a breathtaking vertical take-off, before the instructor puts this versatile craft through its paces - move backwards, forwards and even hover in the air motionless. During the session (at the pilot's discretion), take over the flying duties to really enjoy the sensation of helicopter flight.

In a Nutshell
  • Top tuition from your expert pilot
  • Hover motionless in the air
  • Take control during the flight
  • Your flying time can count towards a Private Pilot's Licence
