Experience the thrill of flying a helicopter yourself with a 40-minute helicopter introductory training flight over Melbourne.
Live out your pilot dreams and experience the unbeatable thrill of flying a helicopter yourself with a helicopter introductory training flight at Australia’s Leading Helicopter School in Melbourne. Your 40-minute training flight will take place in a 2-seater helicopter, a Robinson R22 or Schweizer 300CBi, and you'll take control in the air with a professional instructor by your side.
After you're introduced to your instructor and to the dual-control training helicopter, your training session will begin with a briefing about what makes a helicopter fly, what the various controls do and what you need to do while flying the helicopter. Then soak up the anticipation and buckle in for take off. You'll soar over incredible views on an adrenaline-pumping 40-minute 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 possibly experimenting with hover control. This helicopter introductory training flight is one of the greatest adventures you can try.
