Description

With over 20 years of flying training behind its name, Elstree Helicopters is one of the UK’s most recognised flying schools. Ideally nestled in the beautiful Hertfordshire countryside, Elstree’s base is the perfect training location, just a mere minutes away from the celebrated London skyline. Working closely with aspiring pilots and flight fanatics, Elstree Helicopter’s passionate and well-trained instructors created bespoke training programmes for individuals wanting to achieve their dreams of taking flight.

What better aircraft to start your flying journey than with the world’s most recognised training helicopter. Perfect for beginners, the Robinson R22 is a two-bladed, single engine, light utility training helicopter with style. Before you soar above the clouds, learn some important basics during a pre-flight 30 minute briefing with an experienced helicopter pilot. Discover how the R22 flies and is controlled, from the start-up to shut down procedures.

After a quick photo opportunity with your aircraft, it’s time for vertical takeoff! Get your head in the clouds with a 30-minute flight, during which you’ll get the chance to take the controls. Experience the exhilarating feeling of piloting of a helicopter, as you soar over the beautiful Hertfordshire countryside and on clear day you will be able to see the London skyline on the horizon. You’ll get to enjoy some spectacular views of Warner Bros. and Elstree Studios, home to world famous series and movies such as Harry Potter. The fun’s not over as the lesson is concluded with a hover challenge, where you’ll try your best to keep the R22 helicopter in a well controller hover for as long as you can.

Once back on the ground, you’ll receive a certificate of achievement, as a recognition of your new helicopter flying knowledge, and have the opportunity to purchase your photos or personalised in-flight footage of your lesson.
