Last week I got a cool birthday present - got to fly a helicopter. I love flying in general and really wanted to try this and it was even more fun then I expected :)
Ross (the instructor) gave me a safety briefing, explained everything I needed to know about how the helicopter works and how to control it. The flight itself took more than 30 minutes, we flew along the coastline and above Abel Tasman. It was so great to try to fly the thing myself! I was a bit tense at the beginning but managed to relax after a while which really made a difference when trying to hover. You also get to try landing, take off and forward flight and the instructor is always there to get you out of trouble :) It´s just amazing, go and do it!
Thanx Ross, it was such a great afternoon!
