This is a proper hands on experience, watch out for other experience companies as they normally use 6 seat helicopters and you’ll be sitting in the back between 4 other people and not hand flying!
This exciting one to one helicopter experience lets you feel the thrill of vertical take-off, and gives you the chance to do some aerial sight-seeing as well as trying your hand at flying the helicopter yourself. With a CAA-qualified commercial pilot by your side, you’ll have the opportunity to take the controls of a two-seater helicopter and learn how to fly. If time allows, you might even get the chance to master the tricky hover manoeuvre!
More than just a gift!
Once you’re back on the ground, you’ll also be able to talk to heliport staff to discuss the possibility of returning and learning to fly – and your flight will count towards the hours you need to get a Private Pilot’s Licence (Helicopters).
