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.
Established in 2002, Adventure 001 provides a range of gift experiences. Outings range from spa trips to water sports, supercar driving, clay pigeon shooting and helicopter flying. The company also offers group activities for up to 100 people, as well as corporate event days.
