Fly a helicopter yourself. At the side of a flight instructor you take off at the dual controls. A trial flight is an intensive experience - try yourself as a helicopter pilot.
Before starting, you will receive a theoretical introduction and learn basic behaviors around the helicopter. Then you take off with the flight instructor at the dual controls beside you to your trial flight. The flight instructor gives you more and more control over the helicopter during the flight. You can practice various maneuvers such as landings and hovering. The coordination of all control elements is a big challenge. Can you hold the helicopter in place while hovering? Try it - a trial flight is an intense experience!
At 60 minutes flight time we offer a stopover at a restaurant in the region.
