Flying Pig Helicopters – Borhemwood
ROBINSON R44 HELICOPTER FLIGHT
‘The moment you doubt whether you can fly, you cease forever to be able to do it.’
– J. M. Barrie, Peter Pan
Today, I enjoyed a wonderful day out with my partner in crime for our first trial lesson in a helicopter! It was the perfect weather to fly, so we enjoyed our time in Borhemwood at the Flying Pig Helicopters outdoor airfield having some brunch on arrival.
We sat outdoors by the planes (pictures below) at the IKARON Restaurant & Cafe and pig’d out before going for a briefing to learn all about the controls and safety procedures. Brian, our safety instructor who also took our pictures, was the life of the business making us laugh and smile throughout the day!
A quick thank you to the lady at the desk who offered to give me her ballet-pump shoes for the duration of the flight (as my heels were not allowed on the helicopter), and also to Ray, our captain and pilot of the Robinson R44 Helicopter.
Enjoy our pictures and video!
