Helicopter Lessons in Leicestershire


Enjoy expert helicopter lessons in Leicestershire! This helicopter centre based at Stoughton Airfield near Leicester city centre has been offering professional heli training and charters for many years and is approved and regulated by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA). This school operates the two seater Robinson R22 as well as the Schweizer 300CBi helicopter. Quite a rare helicopter in the UK the Schweizer heli previously built by Hughes is now part of the impressive Sikorsky stable of helicopter manufacturers and is distinguishable by its single three-blade rotor and two-bladed tail rotor. The other advantage of Schweizer based at Leicester Aerodrome is that the weight limit for helicopter flying lessons is 22 stone rather than 17 stone in the Robinson. At this Leicester helicopter school we are offering a choice of lessons including 15 20 30 or 60 trial flights or the Discovery Day for a more comprehensive insight into the world of chopper flying.ย  All sessions are preceded with a safety briefing where your expert heli pilot will tell you all about the principles of helicopter flight explain the controls and tell you the itinerary for your lesson in the skies over Leicestershire. If you’ve never been in a helicopter before ย just hearing the noise of the rotor blades starting off will get the heart pumping! Adjust that headset listen out for airย traffic control and as theย blade speed increases you’ll suddenly feelย theย chopper lift off theย helipad andย with a swoosh you’reย up and away. The Discovery experience is a full day out at the airfield that will delight true helicopter fans as you have a total of two hours in the air usually split into three 40 minute lessons. After each flight you’ll have a debrief with your personal instructor for the day and discuss the syllabus for the next session. Usually the initial flight is to get used to the sensation of being in a helicopter the second lesson will see you flying the helicopter straight and level in the vicinity of this Leicestershire base including holding ‘an attitude’ and maybe even having a go at hovering. The final lesson gives the chance to consolidate all your learning. All of our helicopter lessons over Leicestershire will count towards the training you’ll need to undertake to gain your private pilot’s licence should you wish to turn a taster experience into a hobby or even a career as you fall for the thrill of rotary flying at this friendly Leicester-based training organisation.
