Flight Discovery Experience
If you are serious about getting your pilot licence and would like to experience a longer, more intensive helicopter flight, join us on a Flight Discovery Experience.
This two-hour flight will introduce to the basic techniques demonstrated in the Trial Introductory Flight, as well as provide you with an opportunity to handle all four controls of the aircraft for an extended period, under the watchful eye of your highly-trained flight instructor. As you enjoy the thrill of flying solo, test your skills by learning to hover, maintain a steady flight path and even change direction mid-flight!
Your flight instructor will start with a one-on-one classroom briefing, so you understand basic flying techniques and safety considerations. You will then join your instructor on a pre-flight inspection, before settling yourself into the aircraft as you learn more about helicopter start-up procedures.
The flight is split into two intensive sessions of 60 minutes, with a break in-between to rest and ask the flight instructor any questions you may have. This exhilarating experience is often what convinces many enthusiasts to keep flying and attain their Commercial Helicopter Pilot Licence (CPL(H)) or Private Helicopter Pilot Licence (CPL(P)). If you decide to continue your pilot training, the duration of the Flight Discovery Experience will be logged as flight time towards your pilot licence.
If you want to treat someone special to a flight experience they will never forget, contact us to purchase a Flight Discovery Experience gift voucher at any of our three flight schools.

I had a thoroughly enjoyable time with the Sandy our pilot! She was informative, congenial and a consummate professional. – Kate Hudson
The flight was amazing and extremely well organised. We had wonderful views of Sydney Harbour - extremely impressive from the air, and flying at such a low height you see and appreciate so many points of interest from a very different angle. WOW. Our pilot instilled every bit of confidence in us, both before and during the flight. We will definitely be recommending the company and the team. – Rosemary Ryan
Very professional, friendly. Great experience of a life time. Thank you, AHPS!
Amazing - the guys were so helpful and friendly! Looking at the possibility of taking lessons with them. Great time had by all three of us :-)
Would just like to say thank you for the fantastic experience of flying with you today. I had a very enjoyable time and my family commented on how friendly your staff were while they were waiting. Each staff member asked if they were ok or needed anything each time they walked past them. Again thank you very much for the day.
