R44 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 1 accompanying person can fly with you.

Event time120 minutes
Departure pointGrenchen, Berne-Belp



Like the smaller R22, it is powered by a Lycoming piston engine and offers comfortable seating for four people, with each of the three passengers having a window seat. For flights with just a few passengers, such as wedding flights, it is the ideal solution at an unrivaled price. At Mountainflyers, the helicopter is mainly used for sightseeing flights of all kinds and for pilot training. For many new private pilots, it is the first "big" helicopter and allows them to carry passengers on charter flights and share the fascination of flying with friends and family.

Typical area of use

  • Birthday and wedding flights
  • Pilot training

What is important during the flight?

During the sightseeing flight, you can talk to the pilot via your headset. Make sure that your microphone is positioned close to your mouth. On exclusive sightseeing flights, the route can be adapted according to your wishes, provided this is within the time frame. Photos may of course be taken during the flight.

Unlike an airplane, a helicopter can land almost anywhere. Many sightseeing flights include a stopover in the mountains or at a restaurant. A stopover is always possible on exclusive sightseeing flights lasting 45 minutes or more.

Further information can be found in our passenger briefing.
