The Hertfordshire helicopter flying lesson starts at the friendly flying school, where you will meet the team on the day of your flying experience. After a warm welcome, you will attend a short technical and safety briefing before your pilot instructor gives you a bit of an insight into how a helicopter actually works.

Once you have landed safely back on solid groups, you will receive a flight certificate to commemorate an already unforgettable day. A customised video of your helicopter flying experience will be available at the flying school should you wish to purchase it on the day (additional £39). At this point, you can also have a chat to the pilot to ask any questions you have about the flying school, and perhaps even discuss continuing your training by taking a few more helicopter flying lessons and earning your helicopter pilot's licence!
