“What! Fly a helicopter - bring it on.”
Reviewed 22 April 2012

This was a last minute booking and the weather was perfect. My instuctor (Aaron) communicated very well, the controls and their function were clearly explained and after take off I was actually allowed to fly the helicopter - but needed rescuing when trying to hover! It is not as easy as it looks but is a great challenge. Aaron was a very competent pilot/instuctor and apart from a little nervous perspiration I never felt concerned. I would recommend this without reservation to anyone with an interest in aviation. Now thinking about lessons/PPL - might have been a very expensive day.
