First Helicopter Flight Experience


Recommended Posts

I had a great first helicopter flight experience on 23rd October, 2011 with Capt. Omesili. I flew with the Captain as a Co-Pilot from Accra - Takoradi (Ghana) in a Dauphin 365 aircraft.


We were cruising at 120 knots, 1,100 feet above sea level. Flight time - 50 minutes.


The greatest moment was when he hands off the controls and allowed me to fly the aircraft for some minutes. I flew Straight & Level, did some Right Turns maneuvering. He asked me to fly over a particular mountain.


I learnt so much from this short flight. It helps increase my passion for the profession as I look for funds to commence my flight training in 2012.


It was an unforgettable experience!!!


Kindly share your first helicopter flight experience. Thanks.
