Soar through the skies with this exciting Helicopter Flying Lesson, where you’ll spend 30 thrilling minutes in the air.
If you’ve ever wanted to learn how to fly a helicopter, then this flying experience is for you. See the world from a completely fresh perspective as you hop on board and take over the controls for an exhilarating flight at heights usually reserved for the birds.
On the day, your helicopter lesson will begin with a safety briefing from our expert flying instructor. They’ll take you through the cockpit controls, explain the on-board technology and talk you through everything else you need to know before you pilot your first flight.
Then it’s time to buckle up for take-off. With the flying instructor at the helm, he’ll cruise the helicopter to a steady altitude before it’s time for you take over. Typically, your lesson will take place in a dual control Robinson R22 helicopter, which has two seats – one for you and one for your flying instructor, who’ll be watching carefully. Safety is our number one priority.
Even when you’ve safely landed with two feet firmly on the ground, your head will be in the clouds for days after this adrenaline-pumping helicopter experience.
