We really like this Driving Experiences Experience within easy reach of Wolverhampton, West Midlands.
Take to the skies like never before and experience the sheer joy of Gyrocoptering, gliding quickly and effortlessly above the ground for a thrill few things come close to. Prior to the flight comes a brief introduction to the MTO Sport gyrocopter followed by a safety briefing, and then it’s time to climb aboard! The 20 minute lesson is on a one-to-one basis and the aircraft has dual controls so as well as enjoying bird’s eye views of the West Midlands scenery, passengers are able to become budding pilots and take the controls to learn the basics of flying. This is the perfect experience for those thrill seekers looking try something a little different.
Saturdays and Sundays throughout the year, excluding Christmas and New Year periods.
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.
Expect to be at the venue for around an hour including a safety briefing and 20 minutes flying time.
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.

Choose to fly in an open or closed cockpit (quote preference at point of booking) although guarantee of craft type will depend on availability on the day.
