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.
