Holiday in Australia

Australia is really not that far away and it makes complete sense to get away from the cold UK Winters to continue your training down under in a country blessed with fantastic weather and wonderful scenery. Fly around the stunning Fleurieu Peninsula of South Australia in a Gyroplane. Fleurieu Gyroplanes is a full time Gyroplane Flight School based on the outskirts of the beautiful city of Adelaide, next to the seaside town of Goolwa offering Introductory Flights, Pilot Training and Pilot Development Course.

Combine your trip with that vacation you have always promised yourself and your family. Fleurieu Gyroplanes is based in the premier holiday spot of South Australia.

The Fleurieu Peninsula offers some of the finest natural scenery and wildlife in Australia. Combined with the Coorong National Park, Murray Mouth, Victor Harbor, crystal clear safe waters your family will have a holiday to remember, plus you will have a flying experience like no other.

Fleurieu Gyroplanes has accomodation to rent so,
You can even fly from the backgarden if you wish!

The school is normally open to the public seven days a week and everyone is welcome to come and see the Gyroplanes and have a chat. As well as the complete range of ELA modern Gyroplanes, we also have a Littlewing LW3 tractor Gyroplane and a Gyroplane Shop. We have aircraft for hire (conditions apply).

Your first flight in a Gyroplane

All our Introductory Lessons and Experience Flights are usually flown at the weekend, when the "Gyroport" becomes a hive of activity. If you are coming for a flight - bring as many friends and family as you want - everyone is welcome. Flights should be pre-booked to ensure we have availability.

Train to be a Gyroplane Pilot

Gyroplane Pilot Training can be offered as intensive courses with accommodation if required. Ad hoc training is available as well as conversion, Biennial flight reviews and courses for your examinations. Typically we try to restrict it to two students per instructor working at one time.
