Gryocopters are one of our favourite aircraft here at FlyingLessons.co.uk. There’s very particular and satisfying feeling of knowing everyone you soar over is pointing skywards and gasping… “What the hell is that thing?”
Yes, gyros are definitely the weirdest-looking of the light aircraft family, but that odd combo of plane, helicopter and microlight features allows them to do some pretty amazing flying. Adept at skirting just metres above ground, these aircraft can also maintain flight at speeds that would see more normal aircraft drop out of the sky.
This particular voucher is for a 30 Minute flight in a closed-cockpit model, so while others may brave the freezing winds, you’ll be snugly tucked inside, whilst still having incredible views as you take off from Popham near Basingstoke for an introductory aviation experience you’ll never forget!

Into The Blue say:
Unique amongst autogyro flight operators, here at Popham you can take to the skies in a new generation enclosed cockpit gyroplane. This fully approved factory-built Magri 24 Orion boasts side by side seating (usually autogyros are tandem) and even has in-cabin heating so you will be nice and cosy whatever the weather outside and there's no need for the full flying suit, just a communications headset. Flying an autogyro from Popham airfield is a thrilling aerial experience that gives you the chance to take the controls if you fancy, or you can just sit back and do some sightseeing, as all autogyro experiences are geared to what you'd like to do.
