30 Minute R22 Helicopter Pilot Lesson, Aberdeen

  • Take the controls of a helicopter for a 30 minute trial lesson
  • Under the supervision of your training pilot, learn to control the aircraft
  • Fly a Robinson R22, the worlds favourite training helicopter

Flying a helicopter is one of the most challenging forms of airmanship, a profession normally reserved to skilled north sea pilots, with years of practice! However, you now have the opportunity to learn the skills to fly a helicopter with this personal flying lesson.

This experience takes place at their Aberdeen training facilities. At the start of your experience, meet your pilot instructor who will give you a detailed explanation of the flight ahead. You’ll learn the aerodynamic and power characteristics of a helicopter including how to use the cyclic, the collective, the pedals, and the throttle.

Once you’re briefed for your flight, you’ll venture out to the apron where you’ll meet the aircraft.  Once you’ve done a pre-flight inspection, you’ll get on-board, start the aircraft and get ready for your flight. As you take off, experience the thrill of flying! When safe, the training pilot will hand over control to you. Learn how to hover, manoeuvre, accelerate and climb as you’re flight continues. You’ll be in the helicopter for a total of 30 minutes; a great duration to get the most out of the aircraft.

If you decide that you want to take up a career as a helicopter pilot, this flight will contribute towards your training time.
