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 (on flights of 30 minutes or more)
  • 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 Hughes 300 or Robinson R44.

  • From the moment we arrived it was very organised. The lady who explained everything was very experienced and very interesting.
    It was the first time my husband had completed this and we only booked a ten minute flight as we were not sure if he would like the experience, but it is his birthday in September and will be booking a longer flight for next time as a gift for him.
    My daughter also came with us and has a birthday in August so we will be buying her a voucher also.We would really recommend this as everything was Brilliant from start to finish.
    We all ended the day by having a meal and watching the planes come in and take off , which our granddaughter really enjoyed.
