Introductory Flight

Introductory Flight


If you are considering reaching for the sky, it is always important to ensure that this is the right path for you. At Helicopter Pro, we always recommend our prospective students partake in an introductory flight for them to experience what it would be like to fly in the sky. While no previous experience is needed to learn to fly a helicopter, the introductory flight is a great chance to connect with a certified flight instructor and go over some key aspects of flight in our Robinson R-44 helicopter. During this introductory flight, you will be at the controls flying the helicopter, working on key flight maneuvers like climbs, descents, and turns.


At Helicopter Pro, our introductory flight is designated to give you first-hand experience of what it would be like to fly a helicopter. If you still have questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out. Our qualified instructors would be happy to answer any further questions you may have.

Introductory flights are typically 30 minutes or 1 hour in length.

During our introductory flight, students will have the opportunity to fly the helicopter. While you do not have to take control, most students enjoy this part of the flight.

While we do not “give rides,” people are welcome to an introductory flight which does not require any commitment to proceed with additional flight training beyond this lesson. The introductory flight is there to ensure you are comfortable in the sky, and flying a helicopter would be something enjoyable for you.
