Full description

Are you a flying enthusiast and have you always dreamed of taking the controls of a helicopter like a real pilot? The time has come to try it for real! An experienced instructor is waiting for you in Rome for a test flight aboard a Robinson 22.

This experience will allow you to fly a helicopter with dual controls, making two take-offs and two landings. And you decide on the duration of the flight, choosingeither the30- or 60-minute option at the time of booking... depending on how much you want to fly!

What we will do

The piloting test will take place at theRoma Urbe Airport. The experience will begin with a theoretical lesson on the principles of flight andhelicopter operation. You will learn the main controls and manoeuvres to be used during take-off and landing, and put them to the test immediately afterwards!

At the end of the lesson, you will board thetwo-seater helicopter together with the instructor to start the real flying experience. When the propeller begins to turn, you will be seized by asudden thrill that will reach its peak when you feel the aircraft lift off from the ground and take off vertically.

Thanks to the presence of dual controls, the instructor pilot will be able to regain control at any time, so don't worry, it will be easier than you imagine! And if at some point you don't feel like flying any more, you can relinquish control and stay to enjoy the scenery from above.

You will fly over the airport area north of Rome, making two take-offs and two landings. When booking, you can choose either the 30-minute flight or the 60-minute flight .

To calculate the total duration of the experience, you will have to take into account an additional half-hour, the time of the theory lesson.
