Experience the Discovery Helicopter Lesson Thrill

Have you ever dreamed of taking to the skies and being the captain a full-sized helicopter? The Discovery Helicopter Lesson will put you in the cockpit of a single engine, R22 helicopter and let you fly with it 100% in your control. A fully certified JAA pilot will guide you through the fundamentals of helicopters and flight.
Following the lesson, you and your flight instructor will strap in the R22 for an exciting take-off. While flying over the beautiful English countryside, the instructor will relinquish the controls to you so that you can experience the adrenaline and joy of flying, hovering, banking, and controlling your very own helicopter.

Overview of Discovery Helicopter Lesson

Prepare to experience the adventure of a lifetime or elevate your passion for flight by taking the controls of a two-seater R22 utility helicopter. Zipping through the air, learning to climb above the lush English countryside, and hovering in place, the Discovery Helicopter Lesson introduces you to the basics of helicopter aviation under the instruction of a UK, JAA-certified pilot.

Whether as a helicopter lesson gift, for a one-of-a-kind experience, or to take the first steps in becoming a full-fledged pilot, the introductory lesson is a hands-on experience and a fun-filled adventure in a professional setting.

The helicopters used are certified by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) and safety is always put above all else. During the actual flight, your instructor will diligently take all safety measures and only relinquish the helicopter’s control once the flying environment is determined 100% safe for you to fly.

Safety may be of central concern, but we nonetheless wish to take nothing away from this experience. Following the instructor’s adrenaline-pumping takeoff and real-time instructions of cockpit operations, you will confront the beauty of helicopter flight as you learn to bank, climb, steer, and hover. Upon landing, you are more than welcome to speak with instructors about further training options and the how to pursue a career in helicopter flight.
