The experience is conducted in a Robinson R22 Helicopter (instructor + 1 Person) at The Flight Academy, City Airport Manchester. It allows you to experience the thrill of flying a helicopter and will even count as the first step towards your Private Pilot's Licence.


On arrival at the Flight Academy your helicopter flying lesson is preceded by a short flight briefing with our instructor who will explain all aspects of the flight including the effects of controls and how a helicopter flies. During the lesson you will be allowed to take the controls and actually fly the helicopter! You will receive a certificate signed by our instructor and have the opportunity for photos and refreshments after the lesson. The experience can be taken at any time that suits the recipient and the flying school and is within weather operating limits. The voucher is valid for 12 months.


A truly fabulous gift for anyone of any age and also a perfect introduction to flying for those who have always wanted to try flying a helicopter.
