Gyroplane Instruction

Gyroplane Instruction

For those interested in obtaining their own Private Pilots Licence (Gyroplanes):

Instruction costs:

  • PPL(G) lesson: £140/hr + VAT
  • PPL(G) solo flight (school aircraft): £130/hr + VAT
  • Groundschool instruction: £40/hr + VAT

Owned Aircraft rate:

  • Flight instruction £80/hr + VAT
  • Groundschool instruction: £40/hr + VAT
  • Plus travel expenses (50p per mile) and £90 accommodation per night.

Note: Minimum 40 flying hours required for PPL(G)

In addition to the flight instruction, you will need to pass five CAA ground school exams in related subjects. These cost approximately £30 each. Our ground school instruction is designed to give you more than adequate knowledge to pass these exams.

Our insurance cover is comprehensive. We do not ask for a ‘bond’ when you fly solo in our aircraft. All we ask is that you sign an agreement to pay for the insurance excess (currently £750 max) should you cause damage to the aircraft.
