Learn to Fly a Helicopter - 30 Minutes


  • Learn to fly a helicopter with 30 minutes of air time
  • Hands-on experience with a fully qualified trainer
  • Enjoy incredible aerial views of Sydney

Grab the controls of a Robinson R22 helicopter and experience the thrill of flying for yourself! Under the watchful eyes of a fully CASA-accredited helicopter flight instructor, you'll take to the skies for an exciting learning experience.

What's Included?

  • 30 minute trial introductory flight
  • Experienced instructor
  • Full safety briefing
  • Coffee and refreshments

Turn your dreams of piloting a helicopter into a reality with this hands-on flying lesson. Your experience begins with a coffee and half hour video on the principles of helicopter flight, also detailing how the controls of the Robinson R22 aircraft are used. Then, you'll be taken through how a pre-flight inspection of the helicopter is performed, before boarding the helicopter and going through the start up procedure with your instructor. Before you know it you'll be high up in the sky, with your instructor showing you how to handle the controls individually. Towards the end of your half hour in the air, you'll be flying the helicopter yourself! When you touch back down at base, you will shut down the aircraft and debrief on your experience. You now have bragging rights for life!

Note: If you don't want to take controls of the helicopter but would prefer to be flown, let the provider know well in advance and they'll arrange a pilot instead of an instructor at no extra cost to you.

    Numbers on the Day

    Trial instructional flights are conducted on a one-on-one basis between customer and instructor. If two or more of you want to have the experience together we can arrange this in advance, however the flying component must occur individually. This is therefore subject to availability.


    This experience can go ahead in most weather conditions, but low cloud, high winds or heavy rain can limit this. If in doubt call the experience provider. If the weather is extreme they'll call you. There is no cancellation fee – simply reschedule for a better day.

    Dress Code

    Shorts or jeans are fine.
