The Flight School
ICE Helicopters Flight School offers a wide range of courses from trial lessons to advanced type ratings; we are aiming to be one of the UK’s leading independent aviation companies.
Whatever stage of flying you are at, whether you have 1 hour or 100 hours, you will receive our professional and undivided attention for any training undertaken with us. Our instructors are always happy to chat about anything to do with helicopter training courses, offering our friendly help and advice anywhere we can.
Save the Date: February 14th!
The Valentine’s Day Experience includes an exciting “couples” helicopter lesson perfect for any duo wanting to spend the day with their head in the clouds, and an ideal gift for the aviation enthusiast.
The experience will begin with a romantic roses and (non-alcoholic) champagne reception at the gorgeous Elstree Aerodrome in the heart of the British countryside. After taking in the beautiful views of the Hertfordshire landscape, you’ll both be treated to a trip in the sky which is sure to make you both starry-eyed! One of our brilliant instructors will show you the ropes and you’ll spend an hour flying above the breath-taking countryside of Hertfordshire in our fantastic Robinson R44 helicopter – the ultimate dream date!
What to Expect
After you have met your pilot and had a chance to chat, you’ll be escorted to the Elstree helipad where you will depart from. Your experienced instructor will handle the take-off and the radio as dual controls are fitted to the helicopter, but after you’ve left the helipad and are established in stable flight, you will be passed control of the aircraft under careful supervision.
You’ll be in the helicopter for either 30 or 60 minutes depending on which package you purchase. In addition to this, you will also have a pre-flight briefing with your instructor which should take approximately 30 minutes – this is not included in the total duration.
