About the experience

Experience the thrill of open-cockpit gyrocopter flights over Manchester! Depart from City Airport near the Trafford Centre and behold stunning aerial views of Manchester and Salford's landmarks. City Airport, located west of Salford, stands out as a unique tourist destination. It offers various aircraft to observe, family events, the delightful Veterans Garage café, and the Sopwith Bar and Grill. The flying school specializes in gyrocopter flight training, and you can choose between the open-cockpit MTO Sport by Auto Gyro for an exhilarating flight or the closed-cockpit Magni M24 Orion for a more traditional flying experience. The MTO Sport by Auto Gyro is perfect for training, featuring dual controls and a tandem seating arrangement that places you behind the pilot. On the other hand, the Magni M24 Orion, with dual controls and a side-by-side configuration, allows you to observe the pilot. Your gyrocopter flight from Manchester City includes a comprehensive lesson. You will receive a pilot briefing and be provided with a flying suit, helmet, and a headset communication system for MTO Sports lessons.
