The Gyrocopter Experience Doncaster is one of our latest UK location for training pilots to master the art of gyrocopter flight.
Over the past 10 years The Gyrocopter Experience has taught people from all walks of life to be highly competent gyrocopter pilots and instructors throughout its various locations in the UK and overseas.
Everyone from commercial airline pilots to complete novices have come through our training academy to successfully complete their Private Pilot's Licence (Gyrocopter) or PPL(G).
If you want to learn how to fly a gyrocopter (otherwise known as gyroplanes or autogyros) above the stunning Yorkshire countryside you'll find that we're the perfect fit.
All our training is done in factory built, 2 seater, dual control gyrocopters. It's similar to the way you'd learn to drive a car with the instructor gradually allowing the student more freedom as their skills improve.
We teach a classroom based "Ground School" which covers all aspects of aviation theory, practice and law. In addition we focus on the unique flight characteristics that gyrocopters offer and use video footage to demonstrate key learning points.
The teaching syllabus is approved by the UK's Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) and ensures that all students master the essential framework needed to become competent pilots.
When you train with the Gyrocopter Experience you receive not only the highest standard of training but also the reassurance of your having your instructor on hand to guide you through the whole process from your first flight to gaining your pilot's licence.
The Gyrocopter Experience - Doncaster offers a choice of factory built aircraft to learn to fly.
If you want to fly open cockpit then you can choose the Dynamic Rotorsport MTO-Sport If you want to learn to fly in a fully enclosed machine then you can learn in the luxurious side by side Rotorsport Cavalon.
