Experience the thrill of flying as you take the Controls of a Robinson R22 during a Hands-On Introductory Helicopter Flight Lesson over Seattle. Just five minutes South of Boeing Field, you will meet your certified Helicopter Flight Instructor, who will brief you on safety and proper procedures.

Your experience begins with ground school instruction conducted at the helicopter. You will learn how the helicopter flies, what each control does, how to read the gauges, what to look for in conducting the pre-flight inspection and making sure the helicopter is safe to fly.  After the inspection is complete, you will take to the air for a half hour flight lesson, during which you will take the controls with the help of your flight instructor.

Whether you have always wanted to fly a helicopter, or you are looking for a fun and memorable way to experience Seattle, this amazing Hands-On Intro to Flying a Helicopter is the perfect gift!

 The experience was great from start to finish.
Great welcome, very informtive session and great fun to fly the helicopter. Israel was a great instructor and guide

Helicopter Experience 

5 stars

 I must have had the best instructor that Helicopters Northwest employees! I would highly recommend both Experience Days and Helicopters Northwest for this exciting opportunity! 

- - Seattle, Washington

Full Hour was Great 

5 stars

 Choosing the '+passenger' option here lets you request instead to go for a full hour without passenger. I did that so the overhead of warm-up/cooldown was minimal. I'd studied up a little in advance, so the instructor Chris let me take over progressively more of the controls as the flight went on. Felt like a real lesson and not a token 'I got to touch them' thing. I had a great time and am looking at returning to learn more.

 I thoroughly enjoyed my experience using Northwest helicopters hands on experience. My only complaint would be that I was concentrating so hard the time seemed to pass so quickly.

Helicopter Ride 

3 stars

 The ride was fun but very short. The instructor, Charles, was friendly and informative, made me feel very secure, and taught me to use the basic controls. However, the 30 minute flight time included engine warm up and cool down time, so we really only spent 15 minutes in the air. Hardly an 'experience' of my life.

 The ride was great and a wonderful birthday surprise. The flight was 30 minutes and I got to take the controls and it was very easy. Very enjoyable.

 Had a great time in the air with Jez of NW Helicopters. It was very exciting and very fun to see what they can do and to take a hands on for many of the phases of flight including hovering. Would recommend it to anyone that wants to be in the air.

 My boyfriend Ben and I absolutely enjoyed our training and flight. This was our first time in a helicopter and it was amazing, scary, fun, thrilling, exciting...etc. We had a great time and staff was wonderful. We would highly recommend both Helicopters NW and Experience days to our friends and family! Thank you!

 It was a great ride and short training session. I had flown a chopper many years ago and getting to play again for a short time was great. Instructor was great and would consider doing it again.

 The flight itself was awesome, however only 20 minutes instead of 30. And the communication between xperience days and the flight company was lacking. I was not even on the schedule, but they were gracious enough to do the flight anyway. My 'pilot' was very knowledgable and friendy. Overall, a pretty good experience- and an amazing view!

3 stars

 The pros: The flying itself was really fun! The cons: The flight was 15-20 mins instead of 30. You don't really get to fly the helicopter - you just get to hold the controls while the instructer also does.

Helicopters Northwest is Amazing!

 Brian, my instructor, was smart, patient and got me hooked on flying right from the moment he handed me the controls. I'll never forget that day - it was truly a lifetime memory. Thank you Brian!

 Both positive and negative feedback. I had to reschedule my flight twice when I showed up an my pilot / instructor wasn't there (people with their heads on the desk). I called on the third time and my scheduled instructor (again) wasn't there but a person who was on-site was able to take me later that day. Less pre-flight introduction than I expected (2 minutes). The actual flight (hands-on) part of the trip was excellent.

 I couldn't believe how much fun this was and the great perspective on my city that it gave me. Bryan, my 'driver' was fantastic and really took the time to 'teach' me what he was doing and to show me about the process of flying. I felt comfortable the entire time and had a blast. I'll make sure to recommend this to other people and purchase a gift here for someone else. THANK YOU!

Question: Which airport does this flying lesson takeoff from?

Answer: The Helicopter Lesson flight in Seattle takes place from Boeing Field, King County International Airport, Seattle.

Question: I am very keen on buying this as a gift, but wanted to know if there could be more than 30 mins of flying time?

Answer: Yes, you may purchase the 60 minute flight time by selecting the option above the "Add to Cart" button.

Question: I want to get the upgraded package so that he can either bring a second passenger along OR just use it to go alone and extend the flight to 1 hour. My question is: If I select 'Add a Guest' and pay for 2, will the gift RECIPIENT still have the final choice of what he chooses to do with it? As in: a) take a 2nd person OR b) go alone but with extended flight time.

Answer: Yes, the recipient will have the final choice of how they would like to apply the value of the certificate. They may choose either option upon reservation.

Additionally, Experience Certificates valid for a specific experience may be exchanged prior to requesting a reservation for the experience for which the Certificate is valid.

Question: If I choose to upgrade and add a guest, will be both have the opportunity to fly the helicopter?

Answer: Unfortunately no. Once you take off you won't land until your allotted time is up. Only one person will get to be at the controls.
