Here's a range of helicopter lessons that will set anyone's heart pounding as the rotor blades begin to spin! Prepare to ride high in a two or four seater helicopter, with the likes of Robinson and Hughes helicopters often being used for these training lessons at various venues around the UK. These are two of the most popular makes of choppers on the market today, known for being stable in flight, reliable and easy to fly.Just minutes after your impressive vertical take off, you'll be hovering high in the sky in your heli and your pilot will ensure you spend as much time flying with your hands on the chopper's joystick as possible. By the end of your rotary ride you can say you've flown and hovered your ‘copter like a pro pilot! Read more...

Whizzing through the sky on a helicopter ride has to be one of the most glamorous was to travel. It’s the favoured mode of transport for pop stars and royalty alike on short hops and even though a helicopter is a costly way to get from A to B, who can resist a lesson in one?
Indeed, all of these experiences combine the sheer thrill of trying rotary aviation for the first time with proper tuition. So once you've got used to the sensation of being in the air, you will be encouraged to have a go at the controls and you take part in a proper helicopter lesson. Of course, all the helis are dual-controlled, as they are used for teaching budding pilots wanting to gain their Private Pilot's Licence.
So for this heli flight, you're not just a VIP guest. Every school we use will treat you like a would-be 'copter pilot on your first trial lesson. So if by chance you have the inclination and the means to carry on learning (getting to the point of going solo in a chopper isn't cheap though), everything you do on our vouchers days counts towards getting your licence.
And as if you needed any further convincing on how cool helicopters are, watch our very glam video of a helicopter lesson out of Shoreham Airfield in West Sussex to whet tour appetite for rotary aviation even more!
By the end of the ride you will have a good understanding of how these things actually get in the air and stay up there using rotor blades rather than wings. At first glance they look fairly simplistic when it comes to the controls, but these are finely-tuned flying machines capable of incredible aerial manoeuvres. When in the hands of skilled pilot, performing tricky missions and manoeuvres for the likes of the air ambulance service, mountain rescue and the police are par for the course.
All very clever stuff, but for us, the highlight has to be learning the art of hovering! These craft are amazingly flexible; as nimble going backwards and sideways as they are going forward. Trying to get your head round the controls to pull of these sort of moves is a whole different ball game though. Similarly, flying on the same spot and maintaining the same altitude is as breathtaking to watch from the ground as it is to experience from the co-pilot seat. The sensations you experience are totally unique and totally different to planes and we think you'll love it. A lot.
Of course, all schools we use for these helicopter lessons are fully CAA (Civil Aviation Authority) registered and all the pilots have many hours' in the cockpit under their belts (or should that be blades?). Locations across the UK vary from small, private helipads and club-owned aerodromes, to international airports, but on all activities offered you can be assured of expert hands-on tuition from patient instructor pilots.
