Feel and sense what it's like to be a helicopter pilot from the smells, the communications with tower control to taking over the controls. Yes. You heard it right. You take the controls and fly the helicopter in this once-in-a-lifetime experience.
It all begins with the pilot getting clearance for take-off - a vertical take-off. And the fun continues as you learn about the controls for forward, backward and sideways flight. Find out how to stay motionless in the air and when you are ready, your instructor transfers the controls over to you.
The adrenalin climbs up a notch or two as you take the controls and manoeuvre the helicopter all by yourself.
Your instructor demonstrates the techniques with some low flying and different movements which you can learn and apply during your 30-minute helicopter flight.
Along the way, if you are feeling up to it, your instructor demonstrates a simulated engine failure -a manoeuvre that's not for the faint-hearted but it's entirely up to you.
