The Deal

Potential high flyers can sign up for this helicopter pilot experience with Adventure 001. The day will start off with a presentation by a CAA-licensed helicopter pilot who will draw on his experience and impart his some of his knowledge of the industry. Then guests will take a tour of the hangar, learning about the different aircraft and gaining insight into what it takes to fly them, before getting behind the controls of a two-seater training helicopter for their one-on-one lesson. The experience comes complete with lunch at the airfield restaurant and refreshments in the form of tea and coffee. Guests will receive a certificate upon completion that will count toward flying time on their pilot's licence.
