Gyrocoptering is a weather dependent activity and it is crucial that you call the venue for a weather check before setting out. If your flight is cancelled because of the weather, it will be re-booked for an alternative date or time.
The flight lasts 40 minutes, but please expect to be at the venue for around an hour.
Numbers on the Day
Your briefing might be shared, but your flight will be held on a one-to-one basis with a qualified instructor.
Spectators are welcome to watch you take off and land, dont let them forget to bring a camera or pair of binoculars. They can relax in the cafe and viewing area on the airfield.
Gyrocopters have open cockpits, so wrap up warm. We recommend long trousers, closed in shoes, socks and long sleeve jumpers. Bring gloves in winter and sunglasses are recommended all year round.
This can count towards a Gyrocopter private pilot's licence which requires a minimum of 40hrs of training, made up of 15hrs dual instruction and 10hrs of solo flight. Please be aware this is quite a high adrenaline experience, not for the fainthearted.
