If you have always wanted to know what it's like to fly a helicopter yourself, then you have come to the right place. Our unique Introductory Flight provides you with a truly amazing opportunity to experience firsthand the remarkable capabilities of a helicopter.
The Introductory Flight consists of approximately 30 minutes of ground school, in which our experienced instructors will teach you about the "Do's and Dont's" of flying a helicopter. Afterwards, your flight instructor will teach you what each control does, how to read the gauges and what to look for to make sure the helicopter is safe to fly. You will receive an SFAR 73 endorsement, which allows you to control the helicopter during your flight.
After the ground instruction is complete, you will take to the air on a 30 or 60-minute flight lesson. You will take the controls with the help of your flight instructor to see what it's like to pilot the helicopter. You will get the chance to experience most flight conditions, including straight and level flight, climbs, turns and descents, plus the most memorable hovering.
The Introductory Flight is definitely an affordable introduction to helicopter training and would make a great birthday, anniversary, Christmas gift to the aspiring pilot that could change their life forever. If you are on vacation and have some extra time, this would be another highlight and of course a memorable experience.
The flight time you receive counts towards your license should you wish to continue lessons toward a Private Pilot License.
