Gyrocopters Doncaster


Get a taste of what rotary aerial sport is all about when you take a trial lesson in a gyrocopter in Doncaster! You will be flying in an open cockpit gyroplaneย out of Sandtoft Aerodrome ย a small and friendly owner-operator airfield and club at Belton in between Doncaster and Scunthorpeย The lead gyrocopter instructor here at Sandtoft is Jim Hughes and he loves flying these agile little machines. So much so that he is often called upon by Rotorsport UK the country’™s leading gyro designer and manufacturer to fly their latest aircraft as a demo pilot at open days and fly ins. Little wonder then that this Doncaster-based school also uses the latest Rotorsport gyroplanes for these taster experiences.We are offering the full range of lessons with 10 30 60 and 90 minute flights available. All will start off with a ground briefing before you actually get airborne with those on the 60 and 90 minute sessions benefiting from a more in-depth briefing covering principles of basic flight upper air work and so on (just as anyone starting training to be a gyro pilot would receive).Talking of principles of flight it’™s not easy to explain how a gyrocopter flies but in essence it’™s all about the rotor above your head that turns with the wind (autorotation) to give you lift and the engine behind you that propels you forward. And as Jim himself puts it: ‘œThis unique combination of gaining lift and thrust from two separate systems with separate power sources makes flying a gyrocopter a unique experience; it’™s almost like a helicopter and a plane rolled into one.’For these lessons out of Sandtoft you’™ll be in an open cockpit gyrocopter (a closed cockpit gyro may be booked if you pay a supplement to the gyro school) so the exhilaration of flying in the ‘˜open air’™ is most definitely guaranteed and although you’™ll be kitted out in a proper flying suit and there’™s a little windshield in front of your seat it is very much flying with the elements but that is what make flying in a gyrocopter around Doncaster so much fun!
