Book a Trial Introductory Flight (TIF)

Full-time | Part-time available

Whether you’re after a rewarding career or maybe you have always wondered what it is like to fly a helicopter, a Trial Introductory Flight (TIF) is the first step.  A TIF allows you to test run Aeropower as a training provider and it gives us a chance to see how you will fit into our training culture and student mix.

During the flight, you will be introduced to:

  • A pre-flight briefing on the effects of the controls
  • Hand over – Take over procedures
  • Different checklists
  • Pickup to the hover
  • Hover taxiing of the helicopter
  • A normal takeoff
  • Cruise flight
  • Effects of flight controls
  • Climbing, descending, and turns
  • Engine cool down and shutdown procedures
  • Post-Flight Debriefing

The post-flight debriefing will cover any questions that you have and provide an opportunity to book your next lesson. Your instructor can also complete the flight entry in your logbook if you have one.

The flight lasts for approximately 30 minutes from engine start to shutdown and the flight time is counted towards either your private or commercial helicopter licence. Expect to spend up to 2 hours to complete the experience.
