Introductory Flight

Your first contact with an helicopter


Introductory Flights are specifically designed for those who want to experience flight in a hands-on experience.

On an Introductory Flight you will meet with our friendly office staff who are available to answer any questions about HeliTahoe Academy you may have. After settling your account they will take you to your Certified Flight Instructor.

Program Specifications

In an office setting, your Certified Flight Instructor will go over SFAR regulations and training with you. This 15 minute awareness training makes it possible for you to participate in flight training experiences–if the situation permits.

After signing a Liability Release form and your official log book endorsement you will head out to the helicopter. Your professional pilot will show you main components of the helicopter and walk you through some basic pre-flight training. Then you will take off into the big blue! During your flight, you will experience some helicopter maneuvers and receive coaching from your personal CFI. After your flight you can visit with your instructor to ask more questions about how you can become a professional helicopter pilot. The Introductory Flight is the perfect way to see if flying helicopters is for you.

The price for the Introductory Flight is 200$
