    Learn To Fly A Helicopter on the Gold Coast!

    Your helicopter introductory training flight will take place in a 2-seater helicopter, a Robinson R22. At the helicopter training school, 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 to expect whilst flying the helicopter. Then you're off on a 40-minute helicopter training flight (flight time measured from step-on to step-off, time airborne between 30-35 minutes).

    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 climbing and descending. This helicopter introductory training flight is one of the greatest adventures you can try.
