Trial Lesson

Who hasn’t had the childhood dream of flying a helicopter…at HeliPower we can make that dream come true! Take the controls of a helicopter with one of our experienced and enthusiastic instructors and experience the thrill of helicopter flying.
On the day of the flight the recipient will meet the instructor and receive a short briefing on the controls and how the helicopter flies. Then its time to walk out and takeoff over the beautiful Co. Down scenery. Once at a safe height the student can take control and fly the helicopter. After returning to the airfield the student can try hovering...the hardest and most addictive part of flying a helicopter. The instructor can also demonstrate some advanced low level maneuvers.
The student can fly as much or as little as they are comfortable with. For the longer duration of flights, students can decide where the helicopter flies, just ask on the day.
Friends and family can come along and watch from the viewing area and enjoy a coffee in Cloud 9 cafe while you fly.
