    Take to the skies with a Helicopter trial lesson, from either our Cardiff or Welshpool base. All lessons start with a half hour briefing before taking off in either our R22, R44 or Jet Ranger aircraft. You'll take a tour of the local area and get an opportunity to take control of the helicopter yourself (lesson time counts towards hours required for a pilot's license).

    With a top speed of around 120mph, helicopters are one of the most efficient ways to travel, avoiding traffic jams and overcrowded trains. Our charter service is ideal for sporting events, airport to hotel drops, or when only a helicopter will do the job of getting you there in style and on time. Come fly with us!
