If you’re serious about becoming a chopper pilot, this one’s for you!
On this half-day experience (allow around 4 hours at the airfield) you’ll get a real taste of the life of a helicopter pilot – with expert tutoring from CAA certified professionals.
As part of a small group you’ll go on a tour of the airfield, learn about pathways to PPA qualifications, and find out what’s involved in day-to-day duties for a pilot.
Your flight time of about 20 minutes is taken 1-on-1 with your pilot instructor, giving you a chance to get hands-on with the controls. You’ll receive notes from the tutor, and the time will count towards the total needed to qualify as a pilot.
They’ll even throw in a buffet lunch!

Into The Blue say:
If you've ever dreamt of being in the captain's seat, this is the day for you. It starts off with a welcome over a tea or coffee, followed by a briefing from a CAA licensed pilot instructor who will be hosting the experience. Then it's time for the aerial action with a 15-20 minute one to one lesson in one of the trainer helis with just you and the pilot. You'll learn how to hover, achieve forward flight and experience the manoeuvrability of a helicopter. Back down on terra firma, you and your fellow would-be helicopter pilots take a break for lunch, before you get taken on a behind the scenes tour of the hangars so you can see the fleet of aircraft that operate out of your chosen school. Your instructor pilot will guide you and talk about different types and uses of helicopters - for example, did you know there are both piston-engined and turbine engined helis? After all that excitement airside, your helicopter pilot day ends with an informative talk on life as a commercial helicopter pilot, how to get your licence, whether to earn a living with it or as a keep flying just as a hobby. In this four hour experience there'll also be time for questions, making this the perfect gift for any helicopter enthusiast who would appreciate getting a real hands on insight into the industry and the life of a pilot.
