Terms and Conditions

Trial Lesson Vouchers are valid for 9 months from date of issue. Additional charges may be incurred to extend the validity period if required by the voucher holder.

The voucher has no cash value but may be passed to another person should the recipient not wish to use it.

The voucher will be automatically extended should your lesson be cancelled due to weather or other problems encountered beyond the control of Elite Helicopters

If you are unable to attend a pre-booked lesson you must notify us at least 24 hours prior to your booked time. Non- attendance of a booked lesson will invalidate the voucher.

Flight time is classed as engine start to engine stop.

The Robinson R22 helicopter has a seat weight limit of 17 stone.

The R22 is a two seat Helicopter (Instructor and Student) and as such an R22 Gift Voucher is valid for one person only to fly.

The R44 is a 4 seat Helicopter (Instructor plus three). The principal Gift Voucher holder will fly in the front seat alongside the instructor, two additional passengers may occupy the rear seats and accompany them on the flight, provided that they fully understand that this flight is undertaken as a Trial Lesson/Training Flight and not a Public Transport Sightseeing or Charter flight.

You may bring family and friends along with you on the day if you wish, however for obvious security reasons at the aerodrome only the voucher holder will be permitted to go airside and will be accompanied by the instructor or another member of staff at all times. However family and friends will be able to view the flying activities from our viewing lounge which looks out over the helicopter operating area.

If on the day you would like to have some photographs taken on your camera then please ask the instructor pilot to arrange this for you.
