Our helicopter lessons out of Liverpool offer extra aerial treats for budding chopper pilots. Not only do you get to soar like a (Liver)bird over the most iconic sights of the city centre you also get to invite an observer to join you as a passenger! That’s because these lessons are operated by a Robinson R44 Raven II helicopter. This is one of the most popular training aircraft around and also happens to have four seats. So subject to instructor discretion there’s plenty of room for a passenger to share your helicopter fun over Liverpool . And we have to say being a bigger heli means you will all get fantastic views as you fly. And Liverpool John Lennon Airport is a great location for a helicopter lesson. It’s a busy international airport with full air traffic control and all the facilities to handle big jets. And it’s in between these commercial jetliners landing and taking off that you’ll be heading out in the helicopter. It might be pretty nerve-wracking at first to think you’re in amongst the ‘big boys’ but it’s a pretty cool experience to say the least! What’s more once you’re airborne there’s lots to explore in close proximity of Liverpool’s main airport. As well as the city centre itself there are swathes of countryside to hover over and even those Welsh mountains in the distance which you’ll glimpse on the horizon. Of course you’re not just here to sightsee you’re here to fly the helicopter. Your experiences pilot instructor will be a teaching you the basics as you fly giving you a real feel of what it’s like to be a pilot. Fly sideways fly backwards try some spot turns and classic hovering manoeuvres – it’s great fun. This heli centre has many years of experience in training as well as providing charter surveying and aerial filming services alongside helicopter management facilities. That means you’re in good hands for your experience.
