Discover the thrill of flying when you Learn to Fly a Helicopter above the beautiful Sierra Foothills and the gorgeous surrounding countryside!
After meeting your FAA Certified Flight Instructor, you'll have 30 minutes of ground school that will cover how the helicopter flies, what each control does, how to read the gauges, what to look for in conducting the pre-flight inspection and making sure the helicopter is safe to fly. Next, you'll climb into the Robinson R-44 Helicopter and take to the air!
Your instructor will handle take-off and landing of the helicopter, but you'll have the opportunity to handle the controls for a majority of the 30 or 60 minute flight. Practice maneuvers that may include straight and level flying, climbing, descending and hovering.
During your flight lesson, you'll get to take in aerial views of the Sierra Foothills, the Ridge Golf Club, Rock Creek Lake, Black Oak Golf Course and more!
Man the controls of one of the most popular training aircraft in the world when you Learn to Fly a Helicopter near Sacramento!
