Lake District Gyroplanes

This is a fantastic opportunity to have a trial flying lesson in a Gyrocopter, whilst flying through and over some of the most stunning countryside the UK has to offer. This includes the Lake District where we are based but also parts of the Yorkshire Dales and Cumbria’s beautiful Eden Valley and even Hadrian’s Wall.

You will experience the sheer thrill of taking control of the aircraft – with the knowledge that you will be flying with one of the Country’s most experienced Gyrocopter pilots. You can fly in control for as much as little of the flight as you like, the choice is yours!.

The Experience begins with a short introduction into how the Gyrocopter flies, how the controls work – and an all-important safety brief. Flying suits and helmets will be supplied. During the flight, all the controls will be demonstrated to you and you will then be invited to take the controls and fly the Gyrocopter – and if you’re happy, it’s ‘yours’ for the rest of the flight. (Obviously, the aircraft has dual controls, so your instructor can take over at any time during the flight)

Whether you want the experience the exhilaration of being in control, or you just want the instructor to fly for much of the time, leaving you free to take in the beautiful countryside around and even take some photos – it’s entirely up to you!….this is definitely a flying lesson and experience with a difference!
