This pre-flight briefing will also introduce some of the very basic aerodynamic concepts that effect the helicopter while it is flying. Once complete, your pilot will take you through all of the mandatory pre-flight preparations including weigh-in, fuel calculations, C of G calculations and weather report. Finally you'll take to the skies with your pilot before being given flight control. Your flying session will have you practising banking, turning, increasing and decreasing altitude.
