Robinson R44 Trial Lesson

The Robinson R44 is an excellent helicopter to fly a trial lesson in. The modern roomy cockpit provides an ideal learning environment and the helicopter's ample power and predictable handling characteristics make it a pleasure to fly. Being a 4 seat helicopter it is also possible for 2 other interested individuals to accompany the student on the flight*.

A trial lesson will involve a ground briefing (often in the cockpit) followed by the flight itself. The primary topics covered within a trial lesson will include;

  • The fundamentals of how the helicopter works
  • The individual flight controls, their purpose and operation
  • A basic understanding of the flight instruments.

After take-off from Shoreham airport the student will have the opportunity to;

  • Manipulate each control in flight and
  • See how the helicopter responds visually or via the cockpit instruments
  • Follow the instructor through on some of more complex manoeuvres
  • Have a go at hovering (on flights of 30 minutes or more)
  • Experience radio communication with air traffic control.

Note: If the student, or those accompanying them, are above 20st (127kg) in weight then please contact us. *Mass and balance restrictions apply.

  • We wanted to treat our 8-year-old to a helicopter trip and his feedback was that it was his best day ever! We initially had an issue as the police had closed the airspace due to the recent air crash tragedy but John was extremely flexible and advised that rather than waiting for the go ahead, we should go and spend the day in Brighton (we had originally planned to do this after our trip) and that he would call me once the airfield was open again and that we needn't rush back as he would wait and fit in around us.
    The trip itself was great. John was very knowledgeable of the points of interest, pointing out the various landmarks (Arundel castle etc.) and gave our son the choice of a slow or sharp turn when we had to turn to make our return trip. A sharp turn was chosen and as soon as John carried out the turn, our son immediately asked that he do another "epic turn" :)
    I would highly recommend that if you haven't been in a helicopter that you visit Helifly and go and explore the south of England coastline from 1200ft :)
