Last year when we received our first Guimbal Cabri G2 we celebrated by hosting an open day so we could not think of any better way to celebrate the arrival of our second. There was food, fun and flying.
We offered trial lessons all day at a special rate to give an opportunity to pilots, students and enthusiasts to experience the Cabri G2 – A helicopter for the 21st century, a two-seat, light piston-engined helicopter designed by a former Eurocopter engineer. The Cabri G2 boasts a three-bladed, fully articulated main rotor and fenestron-type tail rotor. Its sleek styling and modern looks really makes it a supermodel of the helicopter world. This state-of-the-art, fast heli features a sophisticated glass cockpit and even an alarm and central-locking!
Everyone interested in becoming a pilot had a chance to discuss gaining their PPL(H) / LAPL(H), as well as giving students of the past and present a chance to consider doing a type rating conversion to the Cabri G2.
The day was not just a celebration of the Cabri G2 but also the successes of one of our students. Chris completed his type rating conversion in the Cabri G2. Chris had already completed his PPL(H) but after having the chance to go up in the Cabri G2 decided that it was the aircraft for him.
The day was a resounding success, with as many trial lessons as we could fit into a day and all the food eaten and big smiles all round. If you are interested in learning to fly or just having a go why not have a look at our trial lessons here.
