You can take the controls of a helicopter without complicated formalities, under the supervision of a flight instructor on a dual-control aircraft.

The itinerary
An introduction to the theory is followed by a session in the actual cockpit, where a flight instructor explains the main instruments and controls to you. Once the control tower has cleared you for take-off, you soar straight up, before approaching various landing sites and learning to hover. Your flight instructor will also be happy to show you other exciting manoeuvres and give you an insight into the many aspects of flying a helicopter.
