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.

  • From the moment we arranged the flight the experience was professional and really really fun. Pilot Cormac took his time to give us an explanation of where we'd be going, listened to us, and made sure that we understood all aspects of safety. He exuded confidence and good humour on the ground... but in the air, he came in to his own. We felt safe at all times, and lost track of time as we flew along the south coast, over Brighton, up the river to Lewes and looped back around the gorgeous South Downs. There were no bumps or alarming judders, and Cormac was a fabulous tour guide, as well as pilot, pointing out landmarks and features that we'd have otherwise have missed. When you fly over the area in a commercial aeroplane you simply don't have the time or view to truly appreciate what's beneath you, but the huge windows on the helicopter give a stunning perspective of Sussex from the air. Is it worth it? Oh boy, it is. Even now, a day later, we're still buzzing from the excitement. It's a mix between a thrill ride and a dream. And the best part is that because of the professionalism and personality of those involved it doesn't feel like a commercial rip off - and that's rare these days. I am seriously considering booking a more bespoke flight now to view our house and neighbourhood from the air.
