Option 2: Helicopter

The Offer:

  • 3-Flight Helicopter Taster (45 min experience, including 20 mins total flying)
  • Take on the hover challenge!
  • 13 UK locations including Warwickshire, Wolverhampton and Nottingham

Available at 13 well-equipped UK locations, this tactical helicopter trial lesson gives you a complete overview of the skills involved in flying a chopper. If you’re thinking of training to be a pilot, this is a great opportunity to pick the brains of someone who has already been through the process. You see, flying any aircraft is about much more than just steering – and this triple-flight experience allows you to have a go at everything. On one flight you’ll ride along as an observer, getting a feel for the sensations of helicopter flight. You’ll also fly as a navigator, one of the key roles for any flying team. Finally of course you’ll have one flight as pilot, where you’ll be guided by your expert instructor as you take the controls for some hands-on experience.


  • Minimum age 12 years
  • Maximum weight 15 stone
  • Maximum height 6’6″

Each of these 3 flights will last around 6 to 7 minutes, giving you a total of around 20 minutes in the air. The entire experience lasts around 45 minutes, making this a fantastic short but informative taster for anyone with an interest in helicopters. This experience is available at 13 venues:
