The Experience

Enjoy a helicopter flying lesson in Elstree. 

Your flying lesson begins with a detail pre flight briefing with an experienced pilot. They will ensure you understand the basic aircraft safety checks, emergency drills and the protocol for dual controls.

You will be taken to the helicopter by a member of the ground handling team where there will be a chance for a photo opportunity, before you climb into the cockpit. After final checks have been made you will experience a vertical take off and experience the amazing views. These include those of the Warner Bros. Studios and Elstree Studios and on clear days, the stunning London skyline.

When the instructor feels you are ready, he will hand the controls over to you and you will fly the helicopter. The lesson will conclude with a hover challenge where you will try and maintain the helicopter in a well controlled hover for as long as possible.

At the end of the flight you will be given a certificate of achievement and will have the opportunity to purchase any souvenir photos or DVD footage of your helicopter flying lesson.
