Choose Between Two Options
- $149 for a 1.5-hour Discovery helicopter package ($299 value)
- $349 for a 2.5-hour Aero helicopter package ($699 value)
During the Discovery package, the student learns about the history of the helicopter before taking a theory course on handling the flight controls, as well as attending a safety briefing. Then, the student boards a helicopter and takes orders on basic flight methods for about five minutes. This gives the student a hands-on understanding of how sensitive the helicopter and its flight instruments are. Afterward, the student receives a certificate of completion.
The Aero package includes everything in the Discovery package. However, the student is also debriefed by the instructor after the five-minute piloting experience and returns to flight conditions and control. This package also includes a second flight, lasting about 10 minutes, with the student in charge of all three flight controls.
For an additional fee, photos and video can be added to either package.
