Experience days

A Gyrocopter Flight Experience in York is the best way to spend the day. Bring the family too, spectate from the ‘Chocks Away’ Cafe. As we take off you realise the amazing stability a modern Gyrocopter has, and the thrill the Experience brings. 1 to 1 training allows the instructor to give control of the Gyroplane/Gyrocopter to the passenger for a truly personal gift/trial flight experience. A Gyrocopter flight experience around York and Yorkshire will allow the passenger to take pictures and see York Minster like never before.
