Our Dorset helicopter lesson experiences are an ideal chance to enjoy stunning coastal views from a birds eye perspective while enjoying the thrill of actually taking the controls.

Your experience will start with a safety brief and then its engines on and off you go on your exhilarating 40 minute flight. Your highly qualified instructor will do the take off and landing but once airborne, the aim is to give you the controls with as much “hands on” flight time as possible, depending on weather and air traffic control.

Our main route takes you down the coast and allows you to really appreciate the wonders of the local scenery. If you live locally and there is time, we can also try and fly over your house!

All flights leave from our offices at Bournemouth Airport where there is plenty of space to bring family and friends. We also have a café on site serving coffee and refreshments.

Upon landing you will receive a certificate of achievement.
