Hover Course

Master one of the most challenging aspects of helicopter flight

The Kuki Hover Course

For some, learning to hover a helicopter is easy and straightforward. For most, it’s possibly the most difficult physical skill you will ever master. For everyone, it’s fun and a skill that lasts a lifetime once mastered.

At Kuki, we have an introductory 2 hours course that’s perfect for all prospective helicopter pilots, or can be an exhilarating introduction to flying and perhaps the ultimate test of your own ability.

Your hover course will start as always with a briefing before heading out to the helicopter to start up. Your pilot will then fly you over to our hover area to begin showing you the controls and effects they have on the helicopter.

Your pilot will then ease you in to the skill, firstly allowing you to take control of the pedals, then the collective and then the cyclic.

Once you know how each works, we will ease you in to using two of the three and then all three together, when you’ll truly be developing the skills needed to hover a helicopter.

As always with Kuki, safety takes priority and you can be confident in the knowledge that we have a 100% safety record.
