Your Introductory Flight

This is your opportunity to take to the skies in a Gyrocopter. You will be able to experience the thrill of Gyrocopter flight, where all the special characteristics of this type of aircraft will be demonstrated to you. You will also be given the chance to take the controls & fly this motorbike of the sky yourself.

All Gyrocopter Experience events begin with a technical briefing which includes an introduction to how a Gyrocopter works and how it is flown. There will also be an important safety briefing. Your Gyrocopter Experience flight will last for around 30 or 60 minutes (depending which option you selected) and during the flight you will have the opportunity to take the controls and fly it yourself, or you can simply relax and enjoy the panoramic views. If you later decide to train for your private pilots licence to fly a Gyrocopter, then your Experience flight Exercise 1a of the syllabus - will count towards your training.
