Helicopter Trial Lesson & Hover Challenge + Two Free Passengers

Gift Experience

About This Experience...

A great way to try your hand at flying helicopters for the first time. Our base at Sherburn Aerodrome is perfect for student pilots, allowing us to train away from busy airline traffic and time wasting ground holding. Your instructor will explain the controls of the helicopter then you can take control and experience helicopter flight for yourself.

Best of all, our Robinson R44 helicopters seat four people, so you can bring two friends along for the flight too!

If you’ve ever wanted to fly a helicopter or know someone who would, this is the perfect gift for anyone with an enthusiasm for flight. Our professional instructors will coach you through the early stages and show just how satisfying becoming a helicopter pilot can be.

Further Information…

Helicopter trial lessons are the perfect way to experience a taste of the freedom of becoming a helicopter pilot. Whether a once in a lifetime experience, a fantastic gift or if you’re considering helicopter training, a trial lesson is the perfect way to begin.

Our trial lessons include a ground briefing with your professional instructor pilot before the flight. Our helicopter pads are right outside of our office doorway, where you will depart from a local helicopter flight with your instructor explaining the basics of flying helicopters as you take the controls to experience helicopter flying for the first time.

Basic helicopter training is conducted almost exclusively on our Robinson R44 helicopters, which is the type you will most likely fly if you decide to train as a pilot. Should you decide to train, the flight time from this trial flight will count towards your qualification.
