Discover the joys of flight as you take to the skies during this Learn to Fly a Helicopter experience in Indianapolis!
If you've ever wondered what it would be like to man the controls of a state-of-the-art helicopter and fly high above the skyline, this is your chance to find out!
Your introductory flight lesson begins when you meet your FAA Certified Flight Instructor. Together, you will spend about 30-45 minutes on the ground going over the controls and learning about your helicopter. After ground school and the completion of a pre-flight checklist, it will be time for you and your instructor to climb into the helicopter and prepare for take-off!
Your instructor will handle take-off and landing but once in the air, you'll take the controls and discover first-hand the thrill of flight. During your approximately 30-minute flight, you may have the opportunity to try straight and level flying, climbs, turns and descents!
Your first flight can be an exciting and memorable time. If you would like to share this experience with a friend or loved one (or both), you may opt to bring along up to 2 passengers, pending weight restrictions. It's a memory you will all share for years to come!
Whether learning to fly is an item on your bucket list or the first, exploratory step toward becoming a pilot, this Learn to Fly a Helicopter experience in Indianapolis is not to be missed!
