The Dream Of Helicopter Flight

There are many of us who dream of flying. But turning this dream into reality may seem out of range due to the difficulty in construction and perceived cost. This was indeed the case several decades ago when riding in a helicopter was simply for the rich and flying by plane was only when it had a valid purpose, never for pleasure. Today, the story remains much the same with flying a commercial helicopter still costing too much though flying a plane is on it's way to becoming more affordable. Well..., there is now an option!

Some of today's aircraft are making the dream more achievable and can reward you the best flying experience of your life. Whether you are buzzing the field at 100 feet or traversing the country at 10,000 feet above the ground, a personal helicopter can now be reality. Experience the thrill, excitement and fun as you take the stick and fly at your own. Yes, you read it right. Fly on your own!

Development of helicopters plus the ambition of companies as well as individuals has led to the invention of ultralight helicopter.

An ultralight helicopter is a flying machine (it really flies by the way) that usually spans between 12 feet and 25 feet with a small fuselage for one or two passengers. It varies depending on the weight. Usually, an ultralight helicopters weight is between 150-190 lbs. unmanned.

Ultralight helicopter can come in three forms:

  1. the ready to fly helicopter
  2. the kit helicopter and
  3. scratch built or plans built helicopter.

Ready to fly of course is the easiest to get in the air fast. The kit may be a little too hard to swallow (at least for some) with building a helicopter from plans only for the adventurist.

There are many popular brands of ultralight helicopter. They simply a smaller mini helicopter looking much the same as full size models though usually lacking extensive cabin coverings due to there size. But what makes these different from the rest is that ultralight helicopters are typically only made to seat one person. Flight parameters are much the same as a commercial helicopter depending on weight and power options.

You still will need appropriate training to enjoy flying an experimental helicopter safely so if you ever wanted to enjoy flight as a helicopter pilot, it is now becoming more achievable than ever! These days they are available for personal use at around the price similar to that of a family sedan.
