About the experience

Discover the thrill of gyro sightseeing over Manchester! Departing from Manchester City Airport, these unique air experiences offer breathtaking views of the cityscape and countryside from a gyrocopter. The gyrocopter, akin to the motorbike of the skies, provides an exhilarating open-cockpit experience with the wind in your face. Alternatively, choose the enclosed gyro for a comfortable, light aircraft like ride. Select from three exciting sightseeing itineraries, including a local 10-minute ‘buzz' tour, a 30-minute countryside tour, or a 30-minute Manchester city centre discovery trip. Embark on the 30-minute countryside excursion, heading north towards the Borough of Chorley. Marvel at Rivington Reservoir and explore the beautiful Rivington Terraced Gardens, featuring Japanese-inspired gardens, an Italian Lake, and the historic Pigeon Tower, courtesy of Mr. Lever (as in Unilever!).
