Bell 407 Trial flight

Fly a helicopter yourself!

During a trial flight, you take the controls as pilot - accompanied and supervised by an experienced flight instructor, of course. The instructor will give you more and more control over the helicopter. You can try out various flight maneuvers such as landings and hovering yourself. Coordinating all the control elements is a major challenge. Can you hold the helicopter in place while hovering? Try it out - a trial flight is an intense and unforgettable experience.

Take up the challenge!

Note: A maximum of 2 accompanying persons can fly with you.

Bell 407 GXi

The helicopter is particularly impressive due to its fast flight speed while remaining true to its smooth and stable flight characteristics.

The Bell 407 GXi has a total of 6 passenger seats and offers excellent all-round visibility. At Mountainflyers, the helicopter is used for sightseeing, taxi and sling load operation flights as well as for pilot training. The Bell 407 GXi has a fully autonomous digital turbine control system (FADEC), which reduces the pilot's workload and minimizes the risk of turbine damage.
Like its little sister, the Bell 505, the Bell 407 GXi is equipped with the latest Garmin 1000 avionics.

The Garmin 1000 combines navigation, engine parameters and radio communication on two large displays. This makes for a tidy cockpit and facilitates pilot's work load.

Frequently asked questions

Do children on helicopter flights cost the same as adults?

Children up to their second birthday may fly on the lap of an adult and are therefore free of charge. By law, children from the age of 2 need their own seat and cost the same as adults.

How can I pay for my helicopter flight?

You can pay for our helicopter flights, vouchers & store items online on account or by card. Cash payment is also possible on site.

We accept the following means of payment:

  • Postcard
  • Visa
  • Mastercard
  • EC debit card
  • Twint

Please note that flights must always be paid for before departure.

Is there a weight limit for helicopter flights?

Yes, there is a maximum take-off weight for each helicopter type, which must not be exceeded. Factors such as the number of passengers, fuel quantity, air temperature, performance and flight time etc. must be taken into account. The pilot is legally obliged to draw up a so-called "load manifest" before the flight. This includes the individual weights of all passengers. When making a reservation for a helicopter flight, we therefore ask for the weights of the passengers and reserve the right to refer to a correspondingly larger and more powerful helicopter if the maximum take-off weight is exceeded. For calculations of specific constellations, please contact us directly.

For the Robinson R22 (only used for trial flights and training) a limit of 95 kg per person applies.

What do I need to consider in terms of clothing?

In principle, the outside temperature can be used as a guide. Our helicopters are of course heated. In addition, each helicopter has enough storage space to take a jacket with you if necessary. We recommend closed shoes.

For flights with glacier landings, mountain or hiking boots and warm, windproof clothing are required.

Do you fly all year round, even in winter?

Yes, we operate all year round. Every season has its own special charm. You can choose your favorite season for the flight.
