Fly around the stunning Yorkshire countryside in a Gyrocopter. The Gyrocopter Experience York is a full time Gyrocopter Flying School based on the outskirts of the beautiful city of York, next to the village of Rufforth offering Introductory Flights, Pilot Training, Pilot Development Course and Instructor Training Courses. The school is normally open to the public six days a week (Monday to Saturday) and everyone is welcome to come and see the Gyrocopters and have a chat. As well as about 15 modern Gyrocopters, we also have a Gyrocopter Museum, a Gyrocopter Cinema, a Gyrocopter Simulator and a Gyrocopter Shop.

Your first flight in a Gyrocopter

All our Introductory Lessons and Experience Flights are usually flown on a Saturday, when the \"Gyroport\" becomes a hive of activity. If you are coming for a flight - bring as many friends and family as you want - everyone is welcome. Flights must be pre-booked to ensure we have the correct aircraft and instructors available.

Train to be a Gyrocopter Pilot

Gyrocopter Pilot Training is normally offered as intensive 5 day courses, Monday through Friday. Typically we have two students per instructor and up to three instructors working at one time.

Train to be a Gyrocopter Instructor

The Gyrocopter Instructor Academy, run by Senior Examiner Phil Harwood, is also based at York, where more than 60% of all the instructors training in the UK did their instructor training.

It\'s Head Office of The Gyrocopter Experience

The Gyrocopter Experience Head Office is also contained within the premises run by our boss, Kati.
