First-Time Helicopter Riders Should Know
Flying thousands of feet above the ground is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. A helicopter ride is even more thrilling because you get a closer and more vivid aerial view of various locations than you would from an aeroplane window. It is normal for a first-time rider to feel anxious and nervous. Here are some pointers to help you have a safe and enjoyable ride.
Before the ride
- Choose a company that can provide you with a safe helicopter ride, such as HeliServices.
- As much as possible, request a morning schedule. Flights in the morning are usually smoother and have better visibility.
- Pay close attention to all safety instructions given during the briefing, and never be afraid to ask questions.
- Wear full-length pants and a light jacket because it can get cold in the air. To reduce glare on the helicopter’s windows, wear dark clothing with no patterns.
- Wearing loose jewellery and accessories such as earrings, necklaces, hats, and sunglasses, as well as open footwear such as sandals and flip flops, is not recommended. Carry no loose items in your hands, such as keys, purses, or cell phones, as these may be blown away while on board.
- Pull your hair back if you have long hair.
- When approaching the helicopter, wait to be escorted by a crew member. Walking from the back of the helicopter is extremely dangerous due to the tail propellers. Approach the aircraft from the front and crouch to avoid the rotors.
- If any of your belongings fly away as you approach the helicopter, simply let it go and never try to catch it.
Throughout the journey
- Follow the instructions, especially those regarding the use of the seat belt, your seat assignment, and whether or not you are permitted to move around onboard.
- Remember that for the helicopter to fly properly and safely, its weight must be balanced, so seating is based on the weight of its passengers.
- If there are no doors on the helicopter and you want to take pictures, make sure you have a camera neck strap.
- Utilise a camera that has fast film or settings.
- Hold the camera close to the window to avoid reflections, but don’t touch it to avoid vibration.
After the ride
- Before exiting the helicopter, wait for the pilot’s go signal.
- Exit the helicopter, in the same manner, you entered it, moving towards the front of the aircraft while remaining crouched.
- We hope that these suggestions help you have a pleasant first helicopter ride. HeliServices guarantees that our customers not only have a safe and convenient helicopter ride, but also the best helicopter ride they’ve ever had!
