Learning to fly is likely to be a major commitment and when it comes to flying a plane, there will be a huge number of theory tests to pass before you are even allowed to get behind the controls. As such, the majority of those who would love to try their hand at flying avoid doing so, feeling that it is simply too time consuming and too expensive for them if they simply wish to have a bit of fun.
However, when it comes to helicopter flights, individuals will be able to get behind the controls far quicker, and may even be able to get their own Private Pilots Licence in no time at all. As such, those who simply wish to try their hand at a bit of flying can do just that, and actually experience what it is like to be in charge of their own flying machine without it costing them a fortune.
Helicopter pilot training is available to almost anyone who wants to give it a go, and it will be a great way to test the waters before committing to a longer series of lessons.
Those who want a private licence or even simply to try their hand at flying now and again for a bit of fun will therefore find that choosing to fly helicopters instead of planes is likely to be the easiest and cheapest way to go about it, and individuals may even find they get the bug, and decide to take it all the way, getting their commercial licence and numerous new career options in the process.
