Experience all the thrills and spills of piloting a helicopter during this 30 minute flying lesson. After a comprehensive pre-flight briefing and inspection of the R44 helicopter, get a feel for the controls and take to the skies, admiring views of Canberra city, the Brindabella Mountains and more.
Ever thought flying a helicopter was an unattainable dream? Well you can now make your dreams come true with this exhilarating learn to fly experience over the Canberra region. Sit in on a comprehensive pre-flight briefing which covers safety and the effects of the controls, before conducting a pre-flight inspection of the R44 helicopter. Feel your excitement build as you strap into the helicopter, hear the engine roar to life and take to the skies with your instructor by your side. Whilst receiving constant expert tuition, admire views of Canberra city, Lake Burley Griffin, the Murrumbidgee and Molonglo River valleys, Ginninderra Falls and the Brindabella Mountains. Once back on ground, you'll be run through a post-flight briefing and given a flight certificate.
Please allow two hours for this experience, including pre and post-flight briefings, the helicopter inspection and the 30 minute lesson.
While there are no age restrictions the participant needs to be able to reach the controls. The max weight seat limit is 136kg, this is a safety limit set by the helicopter manufacture.
This voucher is valid for one person.
Friends and family are welcome.
If the weather is not suitable for the flight, your instructor will reschedule the booking.
Please dress for the weather conditions and wear sturdy footwear.
This experience takes place over Canberra, departing Wallaroo, NSW.
RedBalloon is your one-stop shop for experiences and curated gifts. We’re so confident you’ll love what you get from us, we’re offering this promise to you…
We want you to have the most enriching experience possible, so if this means swapping your jet boat experience for wine tasting then we’ve got you covered. Simply exchange online or contact our Customer Experience Team and we’ll do the work for you.
Not only do we handpick the best experiences for you, we also guarantee you’ll pay the same as you would buying direct from the experience provider. If you find the same experience advertised at a lower standard price on the same day by the same provider, simply take a screenshot of the experience advertised at the lower price and tell us within 30 days of your purchase and we’ll match it.
We understand life gets busy, which is why all vouchers and gift cards purchased have a 5-year expiry. The only exception to our expiry terms is if the experience has already been booked in. We honour the purchase price of our experiences for 18 months. If you book your experience after this time and the price of the experience increases you can either pay the difference or exchange it for another experience free of charge.
We know the trust consumers place in ratings and reviews is tied directly to authenticity. That’s why we use Bazaarvoice. We believe that reviews should represent the genuine, unbiased, and transparent opinion about the author’s experience with a product or service. Reviews are not altered in any way by anyone other than the original author — including corrections for spelling or grammar. Reviews are not filtered, edited, or deleted simply because they are negative or are lower-rated.
The RedBalloon Price Guarantee does not apply to experiences involving accommodation or Experience Providers' own conditional sales.
