What You'll Get
Choose Between Two Options
- $189 for a one-hour piston helicopter flying lesson for one ($398 value)
- $334 for a one-hour turbine helicopter flying lesson with three passengers ($658 value)
A certified flight instructor teaches students how to maneuver a Robinson R22 piston or R66 turbine helicopter during one-hour flying lessons. The instructor goes over takeoff, coastal flight, and landing processes, and the flight can be logged toward actual flight time for those who wish to get their full pilot’s license. The lesson includes 20–30 minutes of ground training and 25–30 minutes of flying time, and three friends can fly with the student pilot in the turbine helicopter.

About Heli Aviation
At Heli Aviation, the Robinson R22, R44, and R66 helicopters that make up the fleet serve a number of roles. They not only lift casual passengers into the sky for sightseeing tours, photography sessions, and search parties for lost Mylar balloons, but also give traffic-patrol pilots a bird's-eye view of the morning commute. Plus, they're used during flying lessons.
Aerial fun and excitement aboard the helicopters are second only to one thing at Heli Aviation—safety. The Helicopter Association International member relies on the Target Zero Safety Management System, whose goal is nothing short of perfection, or zero accidents while providing helicopter services.
After full safety briefings each day, the pilots take off from their 10,000-square-foot area at Sarasota Bradenton International Airport, which features a lobby, classrooms, a training area, and hanger space.
