* Flying solo in our Gyrocopter

In order to fly solo in a School Gyrocopter you must agree to the following:

  1. You will sign a "Bend it, Mend it" agreement which states that you will be responsible for any uninsured losses incurred as a result of damage to the machine whilst in your care. Your liability will be limited to the first £7,500.
  2. You will pay us a returnable bond of £5,000 which we will hold until you complete your solo training. This would be used towards repairs in the event of damage to the Gyrocopter and is fully refundable if there is no damage.
  3. You will pay a £450 contribution towards the additional insurance costs we incur as a result of allowing students to fly solo on our school machines. This is non-refundable and lasts for up to a year.
  4. Your maximum liability is limited to a total of £7,500 of which £5,000 will have been pre-paid (see item 1 above).
