The experienced pilots and capable ground crew at Horizon Helicopter welcome flight seekers to their state-approved helicopter training facility. The school's top pilots offer an introductory flight lesson that guides hoverbird mimickers through all the checks and balances of airborne operation. The FLYIT Professional Helicopter Simulator keeps flyers grounded as they learn piloting techniques, including instrument operation and positional awareness; all hard-mounted switches and controls replicate those in the real aircraft, including operational gumball machines and Wright Brother bobble heads. The combined effect of wide views and the simulator’s accurate imitation of translational lift and torque transports pilot apprentices into the wild blue yonder without fear of cabin-pressure ear pops. Following this 30-minute simulation, pilot pros will set sail above the clouds with rookies in tow for 30 more minutes, allowing novice fingers a chance to twirl the dials and steer the helicopter's course through the sky.
