Discover what it takes to be a helicopter pilot with the fantastic Helicopter Pilot Experience with Lunch. You will spend half a day with qualified pilots, who will show you around the hangars and give a presentation on helicopter career options in case you want to follow the dream after you’ve tried it.
After a full introduction to the controls and a safety briefing, you will take a seat in the helicopter with a Licensed Helicopter Instructor for a 15 to 20 minute one-to-one lesson where you will take the controls. You will enjoy taking on the challenge of hovering with full tuition and experience for yourself what it is like to be in control of an aircraft. You will also enjoy a buffet-style lunch during this experience that will see you well on your way to becoming a real helicopter pilot.
