A helicopter trial flight is a great introduction to the joys of learning to fly a helicopter. Whether you are interested in learning to fly for pleasure, or want to take to the skies as a career this is sure to be an unforgettable experience!
Your helicopter experience begins with a coffee and greeting with your trained instructor. You'll be shown a half hour video on the principles of helicopter flight and how the controls are used to manoeuvre the Robinson R22 helicopter. After the video a pre-flight inspection of the helicopter is performed with your instructor. Once the briefing has been completed and you feel confident to fly, it is time to take to the sky!
You make your way into the helicopter and go through the start up procedure. The engine fires, the rotor blades start turning, and minutes later you are floating above the helipad. Your instructor maintains a watchful eye and safe control of the aircraft at all times. During your 30 minute flight you learn to manipulate the controls individually and towards the end of your incredible half hour in the air, you are flying the helicopter yourself!
When safely back at base, you shut down the helicopter and debrief with your instructor. No previous experience is necessary as you will be in safe hands with highly-trained and experienced flight instructors.
It is reccomended to wear covered hard sole shoes and sunglasses.
This experience takes place at Redcliffe Aerodrome Airport in Brisbane, QLD.
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.
