We love this Experience within easy reach of Manchester, Greater Manchester.
For anyone who wants to learn how to pilot a chopper like a pro, this tactical helicopter flying lesson in Manchester is a must try. A solid introduction to tactical helicopter flying, the exciting trial lesson teaches those first steps towards getting a Private Pilot’s Licence – and from high up in a chopper, the views are sensational! Start with a briefing which includes a talk on all aspects of a safe and successful helicopter flight. Next, it’s time to hop into four-seater R44 chopper and soar to incredible heights with a thrilling vertical lift-off. Take turns at being a passenger and a pilot – the very best way to learn how to control a helicopter, as well sit back and soak in the view. Will you catch the flying bug?
