What to Expect from a Gyrocopter?

There's no better way to get a taste for aviation whilst enjoying a panoramic view of the country than with a gyrocopter experience. Head down to a flight centre for a safety briefing and learn how these quirky machine work. A trained pilot takes passengers through everything before boarding.Suit up, hop aboard and strap in. After a short sprint down the runway, the gyrocopter begins to take flight. This is a truly unforgettable moment as the cockpit is fully open. The pilot flies around using different techniques and even offers over control of the aircraft, weather permitting. Flying has never been so fun and easy. Closed-cockpit models are closer to plane or helicopter experiences. A closed cabin keeps out the elements and allows for more exciting manoeuvres, as well as better aerodynamics.
