It’s a yes from me! : Find out why we’ve got the X Factor at our PPL(H) Open Day

It’s a yes from me! : Find out why we’ve got the X Factor at our PPL(H) Open Day

Next month we will be holding our 8th PPL(H) Open Day, a chance for all budding pilots out there to come along and turn that lifelong dream of learning to fly a helicopter into reality. These events are always a huge success and the perfect opportunity for anyone with their sights set on becoming a pilot to join us at the flying school, talk to the experts and of course get into the air (often for the first time) and FLY!


What can you expect from one of our Open Days?

After a few COVID safety procedures you will be greeted by our ground crew armed with tea, coffee and usually a large plate of pastries. You will have the opportunity to meet our Head of Training and Company Founder Capt. Paul White, Capt. Birgit Kreutzer and the rest of our instructor team, discuss what you are hoping to do, PPL(H) training, you ultimate flying goal etc. There will also be some of our flying family members (students past and present) available to chat to about their experience of learning to fly and why they chose to fly with us. There will be a chance to take a look around the flying school and of course we will also be running tours of our fleet all day which will give you the chance to get up close and personal to all our aircrafts, learn what each type has to offer and which would best suit you. Discounted trial lessons across the fleet; R22, R44, R66, Cabri G2 and B206 (Jet Ranger) will be available on the day so it really is a golden opportunity to find your perfect fit heli.


Already have your PPL(H)?

Our Open Days are not just for those wanting to start their flying journey but also for qualified pilots. Whether you are looking to simply self fly hire for fun/business, add another heli type to your flying portfolio or perhaps looking to expand your skills; learning to fly the London Heli Lanes, confined area practise or honing their airmanship whilst hour building for the next chapter of their flight training.


Why choose us?
Well, we have the X-Factor! Not just Elstree Aerodrome’s ONLY ATO(H), but we are a family run flying school, welcoming pilots of all ages, genders and backgrounds and as such have created a warm, friendly student community.

After 23 years training safe, competent pilots (8 years at Elstree) we have a proven track record, historic successes to draw from and continue to grow and diversify to suit demand. Our Head of Training has over 6000 instructional hours and had been known to help students succeed where other instructors have not.

“No two students are the same and everyone learns in different ways/speeds so we aim to find out what makes our students tick and tailor their training accordingly” – Capt. Paul White

As a family business we take great pride in the way our flying school is run. Integrity and credibility are paramount and a fundamental part of our ethos. When you fly with us you join our flying family and it is this personal touch which is often lost at many other helicopter flying schools both during your training and life after PPL(H); hour building, trips, management of proficiency checks, advanced training and even helping find some students their own helicopter. It’s this passion together with our fantastic team and of course our flying family that makes our flying school what it is and why we have become such a popular choice for helicopter flight training. Our next Open Day is on Saturday 22nd August 2020 so why not come and see for yourself.

Please note: Discounted lessons across ALL types are only valid on the day.
