YOU MAY ALSO WANT TO CONSIDER:

  • Introductory Flight Lesson
    During this introductory flight lesson you can experience the thrill and excitement of piloting a helicopter yourself. The lesson will start with a short ground briefing, followed by an aircraft inspection that every pilot performs before each flight. Afterwards you will enter the cockpit and follow the checklist to start-up the engine and to spin-up the rotors. When ready for take-off you will lift off vertically and soar through the skies. You will be piloting the helicopter about 90% of the time under the close supervision of an experienced flight instructor. In total you will be on the control of the helicopter for approximately 25 minutes. You will treasure this flight for the rest of your life, whether this will be a one-time adventure or the first step towards becoming a certified helicopter pilot.
    $199.00 per person - minimum 1 student; a relative or friend may come along for only $39.00 extra.
  • Extended Introductory Flight Lesson
    This Extended Introductory Flight Lesson is essentially the same Introductory Flight Lesson detailed above. However, your flight time during the extended lesson will be three times as long as during the regular Introductory Flight Lesson.
    $399.00 per person - minimum 1 student; a relative or friend may come along for only $59.00 extra.
  • Double your Training Experience and Pay Less!
    Bring a friend who also wants to experience the thrill and excitement of piloting a helicopter and each of you receives a 25% discount. Moreover, each of you will be able to go on two flights instead of just one: during one flight your friend is on the flight controls and you sit on the back seat observing the flight and the interactions between the instructor and your friend. During the other flight you will be sitting up front and piloting the helicopter while your friend is able to observe your flight lesson. Being on two flights in a row - once as the pilot and once as an observer - is a very valuable experience especially if you are still trying to decide if becoming a certified helicopter pilot or maybe even a professional career helicopter pilot is the right path for you.
    $150.00 per person for regular Introductory Flight Lessons - $350.00 per person for Extended Introductory Flight Lessons.
