Test drive a Turbine
Test drive a Turbine
The Bell 206 is a two-bladed, single engine and the archetypal helicopter. Originally developed for the United States Army in 1962, this light utility aircraft is rugged and reliable. Although not called up for service, the B206 or Jet Ranger shifted into the private/commercial market due to its luxurious ride and fabulous safety record. The 60s produced many national treasures (The Beatles, the mini cooper, Julie Andrews) and the Jet Ranger is no exception and as seen on screen this 5 seater rotorcraft is synonymous with style and even today remains the world’s most popular turbine helicopter.

Our Spring/Summer Trip Collection
We have now finalised our programme of dates and destinations for May to July. A few of our student favourites and at last the opportunity to venture further afield again. From Jimmy’s Farm to Padstow there is something to suit all. Our trips are great practice for a variety of piloting skills for students currently training and for PPL holders a fantastic opportunity to get out and about. Looking for a real flying adventure? Le Touquet is back on the trip list and UK Tour in May. Our trips are always super popular and often over subscribed so head over to our events page to find out more or call to book your space NOW!
So now you’ve passed your PPL, what’s next?
Well the sky is the limit! Some of our students continue on to commercials or perhaps think about adding a type rating to their flying portfolio. Others opt for advanced skills training; London Heli Lanes, confined area, flying over water etc. or simply fly for pleasure with frequent flyers signing up to ‘Club Elstree’ for a cost effective way to self fly hire. A few students have even gone on to purchase their own aircraft, a process which we can assist with and potentially even operate for you should you wish to.
Whatever you choose to do after your PPL we are here to train, advise and guide through your PPL and beyond!
Ground School continues in person and our Virtual Crew Room!
