What Can I Expect

Learn how to become a helicopter ace with this Helicopter Pilot Day! Available at several different venues nationwide, this very special offer will see you noseying around the hangars, learning fascinating facts about choppers and enjoying an extended helicopter flying lesson.

We are offering nine venues for this informative and hands on day at the helipad. All schools used are fully CAA registered and you will be meeting pilots who work commercially and can give you loads of tips, hints and advice - as well as a few aviation anecdotes, no doubt. Centres range from Thruxton airport in Hampshire, to Cumbernauld Airport in Glasgow.

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.
