It was meant to be - as my fiancee and I were driving into Lagos for a day's exploring I spotted a Gyrocopter flying around and then saw the details for Kevin on the free map when we stopped for coffee at a cafe. We cut short our visit to Lagos, and instead Sarah enjoyed chatting to the pilots and students as Kevin took me up for over an hour in G-CIEJ. I have had flying in a gyrocopter in my bucket list for as long as I can remember, having already had several glider flights and starting a fixed-wing PPL many years ago which was curtailed by children arriving ahead of schedule!! I was not disappointed - after a quick safety brief we taxied to the runway and took off. The flight was fantastic, visibility perfect (this being November 23rd), and the Algarve scenery stretched out below. The gyro felt incredibly safe, but with great manoeuvrability. Kevin demonstrated several key benefits of the aircraft - slow speed flying, hover, stability and the ability to land safely with no engine. I got to take the controls for a while which was a bonus! The flight was over all too soon, ending with a steep approach and short roll-out, we had been hanging around waiting for a plane to take off and clear the runway. My hour had extended to 1h10, but as with experiences like this the time seems to evaporate away too quickly. I want to learn to fly one of these - no doubt about it. Currently in discussions with my fiancee about putting our wedding back so I can start flight training - wish me luck!

I had a 90 minute experience flight in the enclosed Magni 24. Absolutely fantastic, what a machine! Steve, the instructor, is tremendous. Everyone should try this, ask Steve to show you what the aircraft can really do. Brilliant day !!!!!!

My husband booked a surprise gyrocopter flight for my Christmas. Thanks Kevin for the fabulous experience. The views were stunning and even got to fly it for a short while. If anyone is thinking of trying this give it a go. Kevin ensures your safety at all times.

Just want to say a big thank you both yourself and your colleague for this afternoons experience Kevin. I know we never stayed up the full hour, my fault. But it has added another notch to the the things i wanted to do. I would highly recommend to my friend that they try this for themselves. Until the next time, thank you. Neil

Phil Harwood's book for converting pilots contains trial questions for the tech exam and says answers can be found by logging in to the gyrocopter experience website. I have registered and logged in but can't find the answers. Could you please send a link to these? Thanks
