How hard is it to fly a plane or helicopter?


Most Helpful Girl

  • As a kid my dad would let me "fly" when we were in the helicopter. He was a pilot and owned his own company, so my siblings and I often got to go up with him. I don't have a fixed wing experience for comparison, but flying a helicopter is relatively easy in my opinion. I never had the opportunity to take off/land. My experiences were VFR (visual flight reference) as i did not know how to read the instruments on my own.

  • Helos are harder because of four axis controls while a plane is three axis controls. Taking off is easier than landing but its fun
