About the experience

Experience the thrill of a Helicopter Pilot Day and unlock the secrets of this high-flying profession! This incredible opportunity is available at multiple locations nationwide. You'll get an up-close look at a helicopter, learn fascinating facts about these amazing machines, and take part in an extended lesson. Rest assured, all the schools hosting these immersive and hands-on days at the helipad are fully certified by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA). You'll have the chance to meet commercial pilots who will share invaluable tips, advice, and captivating aviation stories. If you've ever aspired to take the captain's seat of a helicopter, this is the day for you. The adventure kicks off with a warm welcome over tea or coffee, followed by a briefing from a CAA licensed pilot instructor who will be your guide for the day. Next, get ready to take flight! You'll enjoy a 15-20 minute one-on-one lesson in a training helicopter, where you'll learn to hover, master forward flight, and experience the incredible manoeuvrability of a helicopter. After touching down, you and your fellow helicopter enthusiasts will indulge in a light lunch before embarking on an exclusive behind-the-scenes tour of the helicopters at the airfield. Your instructor pilot will provide insights into different types and uses of helicopters, from piston-engined to turbine-engined helis. To cap off this unforgettable day, you'll receive an enlightening talk on life as a commercial helicopter pilot, the process of obtaining a license, and the various career paths available.
