What Can I Expect

Lincolnshire helicopter lessons - flying out of Humberside International Airport! Originally an RAF base, this busy little commercial airport is based at Kirmington in Lincolnshire and as well as operating scheduled and charter passenger flights and a cargo service, there is this helicopter flying school - so expect a fun experience in busy skies!

This school is a registered FTO (that's Flight Training Organisation) and has been dedicated to helicopter pilot training in Lincolnshire since 1996. Chief Flying Instructor Heather Sugden and team pride themselves on very professional standards and on each lesson you will learn a lot about how helicopters fly, as well as having the thrill of getting your hands on the controls and actually flying the heli yourself.

Once you've got clearance from Air Traffic Control, you will take off from the helipad in front of the school's own 950m squared hangar. Of course, the experience is treated like a proper lesson, but there's still time for you to take in the 'wow' factor of actually being in a helicopter, experiencing the agility and the ability to hover, go vertically or even backwards in the chopper.

The usual flight path on these Lincolnshire helicopter lessons sees you heading north towards the Humber Bridge - it's pretty easy to spot from the air, as it's a 2220m long single-span suspension bridge across the Humber. Of course, you will have time to take photos, but don't forget you're there to learn how to fly a helicopter!
