Discover the unparalleled thrill of flying with this unique simulator and helicopter flight training combination experience in San Diego!
Take to the air in a state of the art helicopter when you Learn to Fly in San Diego!
Choose to fly with just a flight instructor in a Robinson R-22 or bring 2 passengers with you and fly in a Robinson R-44!
Your experience begins when you meet your FAA Certified Flight Instructor. After 30 minutes of ground school, you'll head to the hangar to complete the pre-flight checklist with your flight instructor.
Now you are ready to climb into the helicopter and prepare for take-off! Your pilot will handle take-off and landing, but mid-air you'll take control of the helicopter and learn how the professionals fly on an everyday basis. While in flight, you may have the opportunity to try straight and level flying, climbs, turns and descents!
Take in views of Oceanside and Carlsbad on the approximately 20-minute flight. When your feet are firmly planted back on the ground, feel free to take some photos with the helicopter and consider your first flight lesson complete!
Be prepared to experience a feeling few in the world ever have - the sensation of manning the controls of an airborne helicopter on this Learn to Fly experience in Oceanside!
What To Wear
Safety is the top priority. In the event of inclement weather, you will work directly with your pilot to reschedule. Always contact the experience provider on the day of your experience with any questions regarding weather conditions.
No experience is necessary! You will have a 15-20 minute ground school session, approximately 15 minutes of simulator time and the introductory flight where you will take control of the helicopter will last 15-20 minutes.
