Blackbushe Airport (Camberley)
(click title to see more at this location)See this flying school on a map >> blackbushe-airport-camberley
Once straddling the A30, Blackbushe Airport has downsized somewhat since its heyday - but has remained a vital centre for general aviation as well as an important conservation site for wildlife. Flying schools at Blackbushe offer lessons in Planes, Helicopters and Microlights - with Aerobatics experiences here being particularly popular among thrill-seekers. Easily accessible from London, this is a fantastic place to take to the skies and train for that coveted Pilots License.

Into The Blue say:

With the instructor by your side at all times as you fly in these dual-controlled helicopters, you learn lots during these trial lessons; from how to coordinate pitch and power, using throttle and power changes to execute smooth banked turns and taking off vertically. We think the skills needed to fly a helicopter is a bit like rubbing your stomach and patting your head at the same time - it's all a question of control, coordination and concentration. If these one hour fly a helicopter sessions are not for you, we also offer half hour helicopter rides for those a little less brave and who just want a taster of the sensation!
• Helicopter classes are offered all year round, subject to weather conditions
