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.

  • To celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary, my husband organised a flight with John which also included lunch at the South Lodge Hotel, Horsham.
    It was a beautiful sunny day. The flight was superb with John pointing out various landmarks along the way. We landed at the hotel where we had an excellent lunch on the terrace before returning to Shoreham a couple of hours later.
    It was a trip to remember and worth every penny! John was very helpful and informative. Would definitely recommend.
