    Can Anybody Learn to Fly a Helicopter?

    Look online and you’ll see there are various trial helicopter flying lessons for offer, which promise to lead eventually, and hopefully, to a full helicopter licence. A helicopter licence is a great thing, could open up new career prospects, could give an excuse to take you, your friends and family into the air. This begs the question, can anybody learn to fly a helicopter? Are there specific skills that it’s important to have, are there any other considerations? It’s a good question, and if you’ve ever considered learning to fly a helicopter it’s probably a question you’ve already asked yourself. The fact is, there are things that a helicopter pilot needs be to be good at, such as: A good helicopter pilot will be very coordinated, good at multi-tasking, i.e. doing different tasks at the same time. Unlike perhaps flying a plane, a helicopter pilot is very actively involved in keeping the craft stable. Keeping helicopter in the air also requires a light touch. It can feel, almost, like surgery in the stratosphere, a pilot needs to be calm, measured and somewhat delicate with their touch. On a more practical level, a potential helicopter pilot, perhaps most of all, needs time, and lots of it. It takes many hours of lessons to learn to fly confidentially, and sometimes lessons can be difficult to fit around work or other commitments. Essentially though, if you really want to fly you can do it, as long as you’re prepared to invest the time and effort.
