Your helicopter flight lesson in a Robinson R44 begins with a thirty minute ground lesson conducted at the helicopter launch pad in Northern New Jersey. You may invite one guest to join you during your scenic flight lesson. Prior to take-off from Pittstown, the instructor will explain how the helicopter flies, what each control does, how to read the gauges, what to look for in conducting the pre-flight inspection and how to make sure the helicopter is safe to fly.
After the completion of your ground instruction, you will take off for your 30 minute flight lesson with your guest on board. With the help of your instructor, you will take the controls and experience what it is like to pilot the R44 for your trial flight lesson. During your flight you have the chance to experience many different flight conditions, such as, straight and level flight, climbs, turns, descents, and hovering.
By the end of your exhilarating experience, with the ground lesson and flight combined, you will have a basic understanding of how to fly a Robinson R44 helicopter!
