“I had no previous training, however I decided to call to see what they could offer. After a friendly and extremely helpful conversation, a half-day training was tailored to suit my needs, answer my many questions and establish if the training was viable for me.

On the day, I met with a number of the instructors and was made very welcome from the onset. The approach was friendly and relaxed whilst remaining professional and ensuring safety was always the #1 priority. I was even provided with the details of a UK-based pilot, who has trained in the US and was prepared to help with any questions regarding training abroad.

I was given the opportunity to extend my time in the aircraft to suit my needs and introduced to the controls one by one by my instructor. I was then allowed to operate the controls (within the scope of my very limited ability). The feedback was delivered in a way that aided learning and gave me confidence to try again.

I really would recommend that anyone considering learning to fly a helicopter has a look at Max Flight.”
