Video: How to Fly a Helicopter

Flying a helicopter isn't just fun, it's also not that hard

James Bond, Evelyn Salt, Jason thing you'll notice about all secret agents (at least, the ones worthy of Hollywood franchise love) is that if they need to get the hell outta Dodge, ANY vehicle will do. These super-spies are just as comfortable behind the controls of a jet plane, a submarine, a tank or a jetpack as you or I are cruising around in an automatic car. Why let them have all the fun? Here's a 5-minute hi-def primer on the basics of flying a helicopter, so you'll know what you're doing next time you 'jack' an Apache.

The only other thing you need to know is that the red trigger shoots.

Proper flying lessons are now more or less just a formality, but well worth it since helicopter pilots are loads of fun to hang out with. I was surprised how affordable a basic lesson could be, check out a provider local to you and give it a go!
