  • Description
    This 30-minute Trial Introductory Flight (TIF) could be your first step towards a helicopter pilots’ licence or a great experience if you’ve always wanted to fly without the commitment of a full course. This flight is with you at the controls and your instructor in the co-pilot seat. Post-flight debriefing and Question and Answer session allow you to get the most out of this experience. There is plenty of time for a photo opportunity of you with the helicopter after the experience.

    You will begin your day with a classroom briefing which will cover all aspects of the helicopter controls and how they are used for straight and level flight, for banking and turning, and for an increase and decrease of altitude. This briefing will also introduce some of the very "easy to understand" aerodynamic concepts that affect the helicopter while it is flying.

    Once this simple theory has been introduced in the classroom, it will be time to go out and put into practice what you have learnt. Once airborne and flying orbits around the airport, the instructor will lead you through the controls of the helicopter as per the classroom briefing. The instructor will then say “You have the controls” to which you will respond “I have the controls” and at that stage … you will be flying the helicopter yourself with the instructor as your passenger! Take the time to look up, look out and have a good think about what you are doing… You are flying a helicopter!!
