About the experience

What could be more exhilarating than sightseeing over Manchester? How about soaring in a gyrocopter over Manchester! These extraordinary air adventures departing from Manchester City Airport will take you on a thrilling journey over the cityscape and the countryside in a gyrocopter. A gyrocopter is like the motorcycle of the skies, offering an open-cockpit experience with the wind in your face, or the comfort of an enclosed cockpit akin to a light aircraft. The 30-minute countryside excursion takes you northwards towards the Borough of Chorley, with Rivington Reservoir at the heart of the trip. There's so much to see, including the beautiful Rivington Terraced Gardens on the hillside. This lovely place, featuring Japanese-inspired gardens, an Italian Lake, and the Pigeon Tower, owes its existence to a certain Mr. Lever (as in Unilever!). Ready to experience a gyrocopter sightseeing trip in Manchester? Will it be an open or closed cockpit, and will it be a buzz, Rivington, or the City? Whatever you choose, it's going to be an air experience out of Manchester City Airport like no other!
