A short but exhilarating flight. This is for those individuals or groups who want to try their hand at one of the most difficult exercises that flight training has to offer: hovering a helicopter!
First of all you will receive an all important brief on the effects of each control in the hover before your Instructor will ensure you are seated comfortably in the helicopter.
You will receive a demonstration of each control in a 10 foot hover before being invited to take control. As we do in the real flight training syllabus you will have a go at each control independently before putting them altogether. To end the flight your Instructor will take you up to 500 feet allowing you to take advantage of some well earned rest and absorb the views.
The pre-flight brief will last 10-15 minutes. Total time in the Helicopter is approximately 15 minutes, airborne time 10 minutes.
Limitations for this flight:
Maximum Weight is 18 stone.
Minimum Age is 13 years to reasonably assure that the candidate can reach all of the controls however this is a height rather than an age issue.
