Get that adrenaline pumping with this sensational 30 minute helicopter trial flight in Surrey. Start off with a classroom briefing, which covers how each of the helicopter controls work, in addition to essential health and safety information. Then, once prepared, hop into the cockpit of an R22 helicopter with an experienced instructor and get the lesson off to a flying start. Master upper air handling, before focusing on low-level exercises, such as hovering. Begin by taking charge of a single control at one time, then gradually take on multiple controls and pilot the helicopter through the open skies. Enjoy half an hour of flying, before navigating back to Blackbushe Airport. What a rush!
