Helicopter Trial Introductory Flights

Take to the skies and experience the thrill of flying a helicopter by yourself with a Trial Introductory Flight. This hands-on lesson includes a comprehensive pre-flight brief and the opportunity for you to take hold of the controls and fly the helicopter.


A Trial Introductory Flight is the perfect entry into the world of helicopters.



Each Helicopter Trial Flight consists of a classroom tutorial on The Effects of Controls of a helicopter followed by your helicopter flight where you will take over the controls and fly the aircraft yourself.  You don’t require any previous experience. The helicopter is fitted with dual controls and your highly trained and experienced instructors will be there by your side to guide you through the entire lesson.

What’s included:

  • 30 min briefing where you are taught the controls of the helicopter
  • 30 min flight where you are given control of the helicopter
  • The opportunity to ask any questions you may have continuing to obtain your private or commercial pilot’s licence

Please note: If you decide to continue your helicopter pilot training your Trial Flight time will count towards your licence.
