Air Touraine Academy: Initiation to piloting!

Get your fill of thrills, by taking over the controls of a helicopter!
Take the flight captain’s place and enjoy the unique experience of flying a turbine helicopter.

After a 30-minute briefing, you’ll take over the controls for a 15-minute flight accompanied by your instructor and discover the fine points of piloting and the magic of flight.
