First flight in 2009 PDF Print E-mail

First flight in 200914 year old Air Cadet Ed Davane was the first student pilot of 2009 to fly with the Gyrocopter Experience at York.  Ed had previously flown a number of hours in Self Launching Motor Gliders and other light aircraft and is very keen on flying.

 He had previously seen Gyros flying around his home area and his mother spotted the Gyrocopter Experience outside the McArthur Glen shopping centre on the outskirts of York in December.  It seemed the ideal present for Ed .

Ed had a great time,  he was on the controls for the majority of the flight which took him close to his home and onwards and upwards over Knaresborough.  It was a fantistic crisp January morning - ideal for flying.

This flight counts towards his licence, who knows - he could be solo on his 16th birthday if he continues to fly!
