Why we love it

Helicopter enthusiasts will recognise the R66 as the upgraded version of the R44. With five seats and a Rolls Royce turbine engine, this helicopter is the perfect vessel for a flying lesson with friends. Take to the skies over the extraordinary London skyline and learn all you need to know about taking the controls and donning a pilot’s hat for the day!

What's Included?

  • Take to the skies in a 40-minute flight in a Robinson R66 helicopter for up to four people
  • Discover the principles of flight, how the helicopter is controlled, as well as start-up and shut down procedures in a pre-flight safety briefing
  • Take the controls and fly the helicopter yourself if you’re seated at the front
  • Try out the Crew Cams and take videos and photos of your flight, which you can purchase
  • Log your 40-minutes flying time in your log book with your Instructor if you are training, or plan to train, towards your PPL(H)

Description

What do you do when you aren’t happy with what’s available? Just design something new that meets your specifications. That’s what Frank Robinson did when he went to Rolls Royce and asked for a smaller, lighter engine. And so we have the R66 helicopter, known for its smooth transitions and easy-to-use operational panel.

This is the helicopter that will take you and three friends to the skies in your 40-minute flying lesson. After a comprehensive briefing, including safety checks, ground and airborne emergency drills, you’ll then be shown how to operate the dual controls of the helicopter. As a co-pilot, you’ll be responsible for knowing and communicating who has control, as well as the location of other aircraft in the sky.

Before taking flight, you’ll have a photo opportunity in the helicopter with your group of friends. You’ll then meet your instructor and take your seats to prepare for flight. Expect a vertical take-off, panoramic views of the city and the opportunity to take the controls. Travelling over the Hertfordshire countryside, you can enjoy views of city and country, including the Lea Valley reservoirs and the East side of London.

Once back on the ground, you’ll receive a certificate of achievement and have the opportunity to purchase your photos or personalised in-flight footage of your lesson. If you’re wondering what to do for your next day out with friends, this is one experience you won’t forget in a hurry!
