  • Description
    • Be a pilot for the day and fly a helicopter yourself 
    • Learn to fly from in a private theory session and hands-on flight 
    • Master flying manoeuvres with your pilot instructor by your side 

    Take off on a helicopter adventure where you get to take control and be the pilot. This one-hour pilot training experience in Wollongong includes a one-on-one theory session followed by a 30-minute flight where you get to fly the helicopter yourself. 

    Your trial introductory flight experience begins with a pre-flight briefing and theory session that will prepare you for your hands-on flying adventure. You’ll learn about the helicopter controls and how to use them for straight and level flight, banking and turning, and increasing or decreasing altitude. Your pilot instructor will also take you through some basic aerodynamic concepts that effect the helicopter while in flight. 

    Next, you’ll go through all the mandatory pre-flight preparations including weigh-in, fuel calculations, C of G calculations and weather report. Then it’s time to strap in for a thrilling, 30-minute, hands-on helicopter flight. While in flight your co-pilot will hand over control and guide you through all the manoeuvres you’ve learned about. Put your skills to the test as you practise banking, turning, increasing and decreasing altitude. 

    After your flight there will be time for a post-flight debriefing and Question and Answer session so you can get the most out of the experience. Plus there’s time to take photos with the helicopter as a memento of your exciting flying adventure. 

    Whether you’re keen for an entry into a career in aviation or you just want to experience the incredible thrill of learning to fly, this helicopter pilot training is an adventure you won’t regret.
