"I was lucky enough to receive a trial flight voucher for my birthday from my wife. I had always wanted to have a go at flying a helicopter after taking a spin in one in america. It did not disappoint, paul the instructor made things so simple before the flight which made it so easy when we got up and away. An amazing experience that everybody should do!"

"I booked myself a trail lesson after taking a north coast tour for my birthday. I was so amazed that I wanted to have a go at flying these things for myself. The briefing was really informative and it put my nerves at ease. The flight was just incredible, I had the controls for pretty much all of the flight which I did not expect. I just cant wait to do it again"

"The flight was so much fun, I never thought after such a short time I would be on the control flying the helicopter all by myself. I am glad the instructor was beside me though to point me in the right direction. I will be back"
