Trial Lessons

Experience the thrill of taking control of a helicopter!

First, enjoy a tea or coffee while you have a brief introduction to the controls. Once in the air, you will have the chance to fly the helicopter yourself. You will get a fantastic bird's eye view of the beautiful, local countryside.

The two-seat Robinson R22 helicopter is usually used for pilot training. Friends and family are also welcome to come along as spectators.
