Take Demonstration Helicopter Flights with Our Pilots

Have you ever wondered what it’s like to fly a helicopter? We have made it easy for you to find out: just check out our demos! Our Baltimore helicopter demonstration flights are a great way to see what flying is all about. This is a wonderful opportunity to test if you are trying to decide to pursue helicopter flight lessons or not. A demo flight here at Middle River Aviation also makes a great gift for your adventurous loved ones. Nothing can describe the feeling of flying a helicopter for the first time, we can guarantee that!

     Your helicopter demo flight will be personalized for you depending on your interests. You could request a leisurely voyage to a specific place or head to our practice area to try your hand at some strategic maneuvers. When you arrive for your demo flight lesson, your Baltimore helicopter instructor will introduce themselves to you and begin a pre-flight conversation in order to get a gauge at your comprehension  of flying and goals for this specific demo flight. You will then head out to our helicopter fleet for the official pre-flight and a safety briefing.

     Once you have been briefed and jumping up into the pilot’s seat, it's time to try flying out! Once you have started the helicopter, the instructor will pick up the controls to a hover and take off for you. Don't worry, our certified instructors won't leave you high and dry at any point during this demo flight. They are always there for you and are always available to take the reigns when you need them to. Once you are flying, the controls are all yours! The instructor will be there to assist you in flying and to make sure you are safe, but you will be actively acting as the helicopter pilot. The instructor will handle all the navigating, communicating, and dealing with air traffic control for you. All you have have to focus on is flying!

     Demos with Middle River Aviation are with an FAA certificated flight instructor so your time in the helicopter can be logged towards the 40 hours you need for your private pilot’s certificate. If you do decide to pursue helicopter flight lessons, let us know after your demo and our friendly staff would be happy to begin the admissions process for you.
