Each TIF consists of a classroom tutorial on The Effects of Controls of a helicopter followed by a helicopter flight where you will take over the controls and fly 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.
Please note: If you decide to continue your helicopter pilot training your TIF flight time will count towards your licence.
