If standard planes and helicopters seem a bit dull to you, there is another option that packs a lot of unique features into one small aircraft. Gyroplanes (also called gyrocopters or autogyros) offer a totally different way to fly. Though they look something like small, open-cockpit helicopters, they are an entirely different creature, and one that is surprisingly thrilling to fly in!
This experience voucher based at Perth Airport offers a whole 60 minutes flying in the resident gyroplane – affectionately known as Big Nellie. When you arrive at the airport you’ll be met by your instructor, Kevin, who is an expert gyronaut (we’re not sure if that’s a word, but it sounds cool). Kevin will talk you through the pre-flight safety briefing, then its out onto the airfield to meet Big Nellie. Kitted out in the flying gear provided, you’ll get safely strapped in and then it’s time for take-off!
This voucher offers hands-on experience, so once you reach a safe altitude you’ll be welcome to have a go at controlling the aircraft yourself. With stunning views over the Perthshire countryside, this experience crams in a ton of excitement, making the perfect gift for anyone with a penchant for all thinks quirky!

Into The Blue say:
If you've never seen a gyrocopter in real life before, get ready to meet Big Nellie. We could say she's just a bigger sibling to the famous Little Nellie in the James Bond film, but she most definitely has her own personality. It'll be Kevin who will be taking you up over the is gorgeous part of Scotland for your inaugural gyroplane flight experience. He is a wonderful pilot instructor with a bucket loads of enthusiasm for the fine art of gyro flying, and is also very patient with all his pupils.
