This incredible flight is a once-in-a-lifetime experience for most. This is because you are in charge of the controls. That’s right. So long as you are over 16 years old and have no major disabilities*, you will be in charge of the helicopter.
As you arrive at Moorabbin Airport, you will be given a briefing of the controls of the training helicopter and how you will fly the helicopter. And then you’re off! Your very own helicopter flight over Melbourne as captained by you. You will be accompanied by a highly trained instructor in the dual-controlled chopper. Within the first 5 minutes of the flight, you will be testing out the controls and getting a feel for the helicopter. As the flight progresses, you will gain increasing control of the helicopter as the instructor teaches you how to fly. This means that you will have full control at some point during the flight and the instructor is always there to back you up should you make any mistakes or suffer from nerves.
The flight time will span across 35 minutes. If you think someone close would love the chance to be able to fly, AirShare also has Gift Vouchers. This experience serves as an awesome birthday present for the adventurous types! This helicopter flight lesson is both educational and incredibly fun!
