Fly a helicopter yourself?
Always wondered what it is like to drive a helicopter yourself? You will experience this during this helicopter class. And more; we talk about the operation of the controls, instruments, procedures and the technique that makes it possible for a helicopter to stay in the air!
The helicopter lesson starts with an introduction. During the introduction we talk about the operation of the helicopter, the instruments and the controls. Together with you we walk around the helicopter and show in detail how the helicopter works. Because we want to teach you as much helicopter flying as possible, the pilot will tell you what he is doing before and during the helicopter flight. During the helicopter flight you get all the time to take the information and slowly take over the control!
During the helicopter lesson we walk through all the phases of a helicopter flight: Flying straight ahead, curves, ascent and descent. We also “hover”, where the helicopter is ultimately made! This is the biggest challenge of helicopter flying but also the most fun!
Tips and tricks:
Listen carefully to the instructions of the pilot.
Our best instrument is outside the cockpit; namely the natural horizon!
Do not try to correct about it! Make as small steering results as possible.
Rest with your right arm on your leg so that your hand remains as stable as possible.
While hovering, keep looking into the distance, tell your eyes whether you are stationary or not (because of your peripheral vision).
Enjoy the helicopter flight so also look out a lot!
During the helicopter class there can be 2 passengers (1 passenger behind the steering and 1 passenger on the middle bench) and you are in the air for about 30 minutes!
