Aircraft & Information

The 2-seat Cabri G2 is a new generation of training helicopter, featuring digital cockpit screens and designed with an unparalleled attention to safety.

The 4-seat Robinson R44 is the world’s most popular helicopter, with over 5,000 models produced since 1993. The R44 offers similar performance to larger turbine helicopters, with high reliability, fuel economy and excellent safety features as well as hydraulically assisted controls – at an affordable price.

For some, a trial lesson will be a one-off experience, for others it will be a foundation upon which to build on and learn to fly. For all, it will be truly memorable!

Our experienced instructors will handle the take-off and the radio as dual controls are fitted, but after you've left the helipad you will be passed control of the helicopter under careful supervision. You’ll also have a pre-flight briefing with your instructor which should take approximately 30 minutes - this is not included in the total duration. We operate our trial lessons seven days a week throughout the year, however availability may be limited during busy seasons. Gift vouchers can be purchased over the telephone or in person at our base at Elstree Aerodrome. The flight can be booked at the time of purchase or the voucher holder can telephone to book a time convenient to themselves.
