    Learn To Fly A Helicopter In Melbourne! 

    Experience the unmatched thrill of flying a helicopter! Your helicopter introductory training flight will take place in a 2-seater helicopter, a Robinson R22 or Schweizer 300CBi. 

    After meeting your helicopter flight instructor, you'll have a briefing where the theory and fundamentals of helicopter flight, including an introduction to the controls in your (dual controlled) aircraft.

    After a systems check and final OK, it's time for take-off. You're off on a 30-minute helicopter training flight (flight time measured from the step on to step off, with time airborne between 20-26 minutes).

    After a few minutes, your instructor will hand over controls, one by one, until, toward the end of the helicopter training flight, you might have full control. Try and maintain a steady flight path, or attempt a hover (staying motionless in mid-air) - which sounds easy but is hilariously hard!

    This is a heart-thumping, sweaty-palmed adventure that should be on everyone's bucket list. Your time in the aircraft will count towards your pilot's licence if you choose to continue with lessons.

    Making the booking was clear and easy. The instructions of what to bring and wear on the day was useful and directions on how to get there were specific and welcome. Professional Helicopter Services was fantastic. All the staff we encountered were very friendly and professional. The waiting and viewing area was comfortable. Everything was very clean and well organised. The experience itself was amazing. It was thoroughly enjoyed, highly recommended and would love to do it again.

    The gift was for my brotheres 40th he said it was the best gift his evere had. One suggestion woul be to put a go prow or camera in the helicopter to film as they are flying it, to capture the gift. People would 100% pay more for that as an extra.

    As a plane enthusiast, i was a little apprehensive when i received this gift of a helicopter lesson, The Pilot explained and gave great advice which made the experience more amazing than i thought. Do yourself a favour. Book a Lesson. I would highly recommend it to anyone Cheers Geoff

    Professional Helicopter Services was absolutely fantastic. A truly incredible experience, made better by the clean, modern and professional premises. Nothing can be faulted, and thanks to the brilliant staff for second to none training, guidance and professionalism throughout the experience.

    I can't answer the customer service questions because I didn't need to deal with them. Your website/internet service was spot on and VERY easy to get around; so there was no need to deal with customer service. I honestly dont have one thing I can pick at. I am already looking for my next activity.

    Professional Helicopter Services in Moorabbin totally live up to their name. Such an awesome experience - if you think you're going along as a passenger, think again. You'll be in control before you know it. Couldn't recommend highly enough.
