If you or someone you know has always wanted to fly a helicopter, then this is for you. Experience the thrill of flying a helicopter yourself with a helicopter introductory training flight. This is no ordinary small 2 seat training helicopter, this is the real thing! Your helicopter introductory training flight will take place in a full-sized 4 seater helicopter, a Robinson R44, the most popular commercial helicopter in the world.
The helicopter VH-HWT has leather interior, Bose noise cancelling headsets and cruises at 130mph with a range of 400 miles. This is twice the speed of normal R22 training helicopters, making it the sports car of the helicopter world!
At the heliport, you will be introduced to your helicopter instructor and to the dual-control training helicopter. Your helicopter training session will begin with a briefing about what makes a helicopter fly, what the various controls do and what you must do whilst flying the helicopter. Then jump into our simulator for a 10-minute trial to get the feel of a helicopter prior to trying out the real thing – it will make your time in the air more enjoyable. Then you’re off on a 20-minute helicopter training flight.
Within the first five minutes you’ll be trying your hand at the helicopter controls. One by one, more helicopter controls will be introduced to you until, toward the end of the helicopter training flight, you could have full control. You’ll be able to test your skills by maintaining a steady flight path, changing direction and experimenting with hover control. This helicopter introductory training flight is one of the greatest adventures you can try.
