Robinson R22 Trial Lesson

A trial lesson in a Robinson R22 helicopter is the way most private pilots started their flying careers. This small, lightweight helicopter is by far the most popular choice for those learning due to its simplicity and low running costs.

A trial lesson will involve a ground briefing (often in the cockpit) followed by the flight itself. The primary topics covered within a trial lesson will include;

  • The fundamentals of how the helicopter works
  • The individual flight controls, their purpose and operation
  • A basic understanding of the flight instruments.

After take-off from Shoreham airport the student will have the opportunity to;

  • Manipulate each control in flight and
  • See how the helicopter responds visually or via the cockpit instruments
  • Follow the instructor through on some of more complex manoeuvres
  • Have a go at hovering
  • Experience radio communication with air traffic control.

Note: If the student is above 17st (108kg) in weight or over 6ft 2” (1.88m) in height the R22 may not be suitable. Please see the Robinson R44.

  • My husband surprised me with a helicopter flight and lunch at the Bailiffs Court package with champagne on arrival. Whilst the lunch was fantastic, the flight itself was just amazing. The bonus of the lunch package is you get 2 flights, one there and one back so much more worthwhile. We had a good 2 hours for lunch, the staff were very attentive and the food was superb. Our pilot John was great, he gave us plenty of time and we didn't feel rushed at all. I couldn't wait for the flight home, I love the perspective from the air and we live in such a beautiful part of the country it was just fantastic to see. I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys flying, I didn't stop smiling the whole time and couldn't stop talking about it afterwards. Would love to do it again (& again)!!
