Discover new heights as you try your hand at flying a helicopter with this professional introductory flying lesson in Metro Detroit!
When you take the controls of a helicopter, you’ll never see things the same way again. Make your dream of becoming a helicopter pilot a reality with an introductory lesson at one of Metro Detroit’s leading helicopter flight schools.
Your journey to piloting a chopper begins when you meet your FAA certified instructor and get started with 1 hour of practical on-the-ground instruction to prepare yourself for the flight. Choose from either a 30-minute or 1-hour lesson, where you’ll learn from instructors who are specialized in educating career-oriented pilots. You’ll learn the basics of helicopter controls and flight procedure, including starting the engine and takeoff preparation, in a Robinson R44 helicopter.
After ground instruction is complete, you’ll take your seat beside your instructor, who will guide you through your first take off. Admire unparalleled views of Metro Detroit as you learn how to maneuver the helicopter above the city and surrounding areas. Then as your flight time comes to a close, your instructor will guide you through the procedures to touch down and land the helicopter safely.
You may be back on the ground, but you’ll still feel like you’re floating on air after this exciting helicopter flying lesson!
