Experience the thrill of flying as you take the Controls of a Robinson R22. Your experience begins with 30 minutes of ground school conducted at the helicopter explaining 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 ground instruction is complete, you will take to the air on a 30 minute flight lesson, during which you will take the controls with the help of your flight instructor to see what it is like to pilot the helicopter. This flight is usually conducted at Long Beach Airport and over the local coast line. Students get the chance to experience most flight conditions, including straight and level flight, climbs, turns and descents, plus the most memorable, hovering.
With the ground school and flight combined, you will have a basic understanding of how to fly the helicopter. This Hands-On Flight will have you piloting the skies making it a memorable experience!
