About the experience

Discover the thrill of helicopter lessons at Shobdon Aerodrome in Herefordshire! Experience a 30-minute helicopter lesson in a two-seater aircraft at this well-established training school just west of Leominster. Owner Alan Ramsden has been offering helicopter lessons in Herefordshire since 1992. His passion for helicopters led him to set up the training school at Shobdon after gaining extensive experience as a helicopter pilot and instructor in the USA. Shobdon, with its excellent relations with the local community and unrestricted airspace, provides an ideal setting for helicopter operations. The two-seater flights use the renowned Robinson R22 training helicopter. Book a helicopter flight at Shobdon Airfield, and you'll benefit from the expertise of the pilot instructors while enjoying the breathtaking backdrop of Leominster and the surrounding Herefordshire countryside!
