introductory flight

 

Our introductory flights are carried out in Robinson R22 and R44 Helicopters (Robinson R66 and Bell 206 are available). No other helicopters in their class can match their speed, reliability, affordable price, and low operating costs. They have fewer accidents due to aircraft or engine failure than other helicopters, and Robinson’s commitment to the highest quality in design, materials, and craftsmanship make them the enduring choice for flight training.

 Before the flight, you will spend time with your instructor to understand the operation and effects of the controls. During the introductory flight you will be required to be on the flight controls for part of the time being assisted by one of our experienced flight instructors. At the end of the flight you will sit down with the instructor  covering any questions you might have. This flight time will count towards your pilot certificate if you subsequently decide to go ahead with a course.
