- When you call the operator to arrange the date of your experience you'll be sent confirmation and a really informative book which gives all sorts of
information about what happens on a trial flying lesson and the basics of aerodynamics and how the controls work
- On the day itself you'll call to make sure that the weather is OK, if it is not you'll simply be postponed
- When you get to the flying school you'll be given refreshments and meet your intructors for the day - and any other course members.
- Then there's a safety briefing and proper introduction to the controls and instruments.
- ...and now it's off to the helicopter and YOUR chance to do some flying!!
- After the landing, it's back for a de-brief and 'tea and medals' and LUNCH.
- Aviators love talking to fellow aviators about helicopters and you'll now have a guided tour of the hangar/s at the airfield - chance to ask all sorts of
questions about the various types and performance and engineering and...(so it goes, and so it goes).
- Back to the classroom/club house and a presentation all about the career options and pathways for those people who are lucky and skilfull
enough to go on and make a living out of flying helicopters.
- Most locations will also supply you with a certificate, and the time spent flying definitely counts towards your total so you should get
yourself a logbook so your instructor can make the first entry. A document which you will treasure for life.
