A Fly Yourself flight is an excellent gift to someone close

Pinch - Hitter - Training

With this course, we want to put you in the position to be able to control the helicopter in an emergency situation in a limited way: At most helicopter flights, the pilot is the only person on board, who can control and operate the aircraft. If the pilot passes out e.g. through a medical emergency, after passing this course, you can fly the helicopter back to ground. Besides, this course is a good introduction to get a deeper impression of helicopter flying

Afterwards, you can acquire a Private Pilot License PPL(H), based on the pinch-hitter-course.


Pinch Hitter has the meaing "to take over for some"

Hint: The Pinch-Hitter course is only meant for emergency situations or as an introduction ti helicopter flying, it does not qualify to fly a helicopter.
