About the experience

Prepare for an unforgettable adventure with open-cockpit gyrocopter flights over Manchester! Take off from City Airport near the Trafford Centre and witness stunning aerial views of Manchester and Salford's landmarks. City Airport, situated to the west of Salford and distinct from Manchester International Airport, is a hub of unique experiences. From observing various aircraft to enjoying exciting family events and from relishing the delightful Veterans Garage café to dining at the Sopwith Bar and Grill, there's something for everyone to explore and enjoy. The flying school at Manchester's most welcoming airport specialises in gyrocopter flight training. These vouchers allow you to experience the thrill of flying in a gyrocopter. Opt for the open-cockpit MTO Sport by Auto Gyro for an in-the-elements flying experience or the closed-cockpit Magni M24 Orion for a traditional light aircraft feel. The MTO Sport by Auto Gyro has dual controls and is perfect for training. It offers a tandem seating arrangement that places you behind the pilot. On the other hand, the Magni M24 Orion features dual controls and a side-by-side configuration, allowing you to observe the pilot. Your gyrocopter flight from Manchester City is not just a thrilling adventure, but also a comprehensive lesson. You will receive a detailed pilot briefing, and we will provide you with a flying suit, helmet, and a headset communication system for MTO Sports lessons, ensuring your safety and comfort throughout the experience.
