Airbus H125 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.

Airbus H125

The "A-Star" family was developed in the 1970s by the French manufacturer Aerospatiale (later Eurocopter, now Airbus Helicopters) and is still very popular today.

The six- to seven-seats helicopter with a Turbomeca turbine engine is the most widely used aircraft in the Swiss helicopter industry. Its range of applications covers almost all areas of helicopter flying. We use the H125  for passenger transportation as well as for sling load operations. If the intention is to be employed by a helicopter company, a rating on the Airbus H125 is essential.

Typical area of use

  • Ideally suited for all types of sightseeing flights
  • Aerial work, such as sling load operations and flights at high altitudes
  • Heliskiing and taxi flights
  • Pilot training

Frequently asked questions

How long is the delivery time for vouchers?

You can print our vouchers immediately after ordering (payment by invoice or online by card). There is therefore no delivery time. You don't want to or can't print the voucher? Contact us - we will send you the voucher by A Mail so that it arrives the following day.

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.

How does a helicopter actually work?

The helicopter is a complex aircraft. The lift force that allows the helicopter to rise into the air is generated by the horizontally rotating rotor blades, which are moved by an engine. The helicopter uses the rotor to generate lift that makes it fly upwards.

How far in advance do I have to book a helicopter flight?

We recommend booking one to two weeks in advance. Reservations can of course also be made at shorter notice. With shorter lead times, it is possible that our helicopters are already occupied. Weekends are particularly busy.

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.
