This Helicopter lesson is your chance to experience a pure adrenaline rush, and insights to flying a helicopter. The instructor will give you a short flight briefing, and explain all the aspects of the flight, including the effects of controls and how a helicopter flies. You will then be shown the manoeuvrability of a modern helicopter. Sideways, backwards, round in circles, and then the tricky test of concentration and skill, the hover. Then it is your turn to take the controls, climb away, take a look at the countryside, then come back down to earth for very low-level flying, and to see if you can handle the hover. On completing the experience, you will be awarded with a flight certificate.
With over 20 locations across the country, this experience is easily accessible and can be enjoyed by anyone. Bring friends and family along with you to watch and take photographs as you walk out to the helicopter. This makes the perfect gift and day out for anyone wanting to see the land from different heights, for an adrenaline rush, and for wanting the perfect introduction into flying a helicopter.
