    Learn To Fly A Helicopter In Melbourne! 

    Experience the unmatched thrill of flying a helicopter with a trial introductory flight! Flight training in 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 by the helicopter pilot 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 pilot training flight, you might have full control. Try to 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 in a flight experience that should be on everyone's bucket list. Your time in the aircraft will count towards your pilot's licence as a commercial pilot licence if you choose to continue with lessons.
