Learn to fly a helicopter in Yorkshire

Learning to fly a helicopter is one of the most exciting things you’ll ever do. Trust us, we’ve been there and loved it so much we now teach other people how to fly!
Helicopter pilot training in Yorkshire comes no better than our base at Sherburn Airfield, Yorkshire. Not only do you have a friendly team with thousands of hours in flight training, but you have the stunning aerial views that Yorkshire has to offer.
Better still, it’s a quiet area with plenty of space, plus we even have our very own helicopter circuit at the airfield.
Whether helicopter flight training is just for some fun at the weekend or you’re looking to take the leap in to commercial flying, we have the aircraft, facilities and tuition to make your dream happen.

Helicopter simulator for serious training or just for fun!

Try flying a helicopter without ever leaving the ground! Our Bell Jetranger flight simulator is a fun and alternative solution for all ages.
Totally different to the keyboard operated computer game you have at home, our helicopter simulator is the real thing and is regularly used for training helicopter pilots for emergency procedures.
Based at Leeds Bradford Airport in Yorkshire, our simulator has a full Jetranger cockpit layout complete with all of the helicopter controls, plus computer generated imaging for a highly authentic flight feel. Try your hand at flying around downtown Chicago or the skyscrapers of New York as our flight sim instructor recreates the city layout, while adding changing weather conditions. Best of all, if you make a mistake, we simply push the reset button!
The Bell Jetranger simulator makes a great gift for the helicopter enthusiast in your life. You can buy individual flight simulator experiences, or make a group booking with friends and compete against each other to see who is the best helicopter pilot, a great family present.
Combine your Jetranger flight simulator session with a Yorkshire helicopter pleasure flight and experience what it’s like to fly in a helicopter for real.

Hields’ fixed wing training base

Learn to fly at Yorkshire’s international airport
The new facility at Leeds Bradford International airport is primarily for fixed-wing training. We operate Cessna 172 Skyhawk aircraft which are fully ‘Instrument Rated’ and are fitted with ‘Auto-pilot’ facility.
The PPL training from LBA is essential for maximum confidence when operating from an International Airport. The general operating procedures, coupled with the radio-telephony between pilots, the tower, and air traffic control, will guarantee confidence to use similar large airports both nationally and internationally. As the students progress to instrument approach procedures, they will naturally feel at home from Leeds. It is essential for adventurous private pilots, and pilots aspiring to future airline careers.
In addition other training airfields are accessible to Hields students for small, ‘uncontrolled’ club procedures, take-offs and landings. Different airfields currently used are the tarmac configurations at Leeds East Airport, (former RAF Church Fenton), Beverley airfield, (Linley Hill), grass strips, and of course Sherburn Airfield, which has both grass and tarmac surfaces available.
Helicopter training can be conducted from Leeds, however, the 30 year established school at Sherburn Aerodrome out to the East, is more suitable for all the helicopter training exercises at low level, so any budding helicopter student would be swiftly flown, (10 mins), from the international airport to the helicopter school.
