Captain Mike Jarvis from Pterodactyl Helicopters offers junior aviator training for children aged between 10 and 15. Mike has been a pilot himself for 35 years, and wished a similar program was available when he was a child.
Based near Amberley airbase in the Ipswich region, keen young aviators can spend the day with Captain Mike at Pterodactyl Helicopters learning all about what it takes to be a helicopter pilot. In addition to a chopper flight, participants find out much more about flying – for example flight pre-inspection, fuelling, weather, air traffic control procedures and so much more.
