Hovering in a helicopter for the first time is a unique and thrilling sensation. You will get hands-on experience of the only flying machine that goes backwards and sideways as well as forwards whilst being guided by a CAA qualified instructor throughout.
• One to one training from a CAA licensed instructor
• Introductory briefing on helicopter controls and safety
• One flight of 20-25 minutes in a 2-seater helicopter during which the student takes the controls
• Experience gift box including, personalised voucher and message card
• PA cover to a value of £50,000 plus cancellation indemnity
What happens on the day Your flying lesson will start with a briefing from your instructor before the flight of approximately 20 to 25 minutes. This will cover safety, and an introduction to some of the controls. Once in the helicopter, your flight starts from the time the engine turns over. You will be given headphones so that you can hear conversations between your instructor and air traffic control, and so that you can talk with your instructor. Once in the air, you will be able to take the controls but your pilot will generally undertake the take-off and landing. The helicopter is a remarkable aircraft and will astound you with its versatility.
