This ½Hr Robinson R44 Helicopter Flying Lesson is conducted in a 4 seat helicopter (instructor + 1 Person + 1 Friend of Relative) 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 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. You will be in the air for 20 minutes and during the lesson you will be allowed to take the controls and actually fly the helicopter! This flying lesson will give you an insight into the thrills of flying and you will receive a certificate signed by our instructor and have the opportunity for photos and take refreshments in the Flight Academy after the lesson. The lesson 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.
