Enjoy flying – become a gyrocopter pilot

Feel the passion


Once I’ve started flying I quickly realized – it’s the most profound experience possible. The feeling of being alive that’s impossible to feel if you’re standing on solid ground. While we were flying over the mountains, it was morning. The experience of the sun rising was thrilling. Since that day I haven’t managed to shake the feeling of flying, the smell inside the pilot cabin, the sound of the airplane engine revving. Above all, the feeling of respect as the world grows smaller beneath your feet. Become a pilot – that’s the only thing left to do.



I get into the airplane. One look at the dashboard and everything seems familiar. Heart’s pounding in my chest and my breathing quickens. I turn on the engine and hear a familiar sound as all the anxiety fades away. A single deep breath, and suddenly I’m calm. Going through the pre-flight checklist, there’s a smile on my face as I ascend. In a few minutes, I’m soaring up high above the mountains and the sea. I’m thrilled to look at the world from a different perspective.


To become a pilot you need to go to flight school which takes 4 years to complete. 

Yes, but only if you’re planning to drive a Boeing or an F-16. Much like for a car, you don’t need to spend years practicing to start driving. For a flying license, all you need to do is to finish our class which lasts up to 8 weeks. 

To become a pilot you have to be young and completely healthy. You also have to have impeccable eyesight and all your teeth.

You don’t. To become a casual pilot all you need is a medical checkup, similar to the one you have to go through while getting your driver’s license.

Piloting school is expensive. You can’t afford it.

Yes, it’s a tad more expensive than your average driver’s license. However, you don’t have to pay for it all at once.

A plane is expensive, only a select few can afford it.

The price of a new gyrocopter is between 50.000 – 100.000 EUR, depending on the model. That’s like buying a slightly more expensive car, it’s not unheard of. You can always opt-in and buy a used plane, which is even cheaper.

Renting a gyroplane is too expensive.

Not true. Renting gyroplane on a weekly basis costs like charting a sailboat.

Why is Gyrocopter your best choice for flying?

Grocopter (gyroplane) has been declared as one of the safest aircraft out there. That’s mainly because the gyrocopter’s rotor isn’t powered by an engine, rather by the flow of air. This means a gyrocopter can effectively fly and land safely, even in case of engine failure. 

Due to its lightweight design and low fuel consumption, gyrocopter uses a Rotax engine. It’s one of the most often used engines in the world. The average gyrocopter has very few straight lines, with the only one being the rotor. Due to the length of the rotor of only 20 cm, it can withstand strong winds and thermic oscillations.  

This aircraft is certified to fly in strong winds, up to 50 kt, which is impossible for a plane with a fixed-wing set like the Cessna. In comparison, the popular Cessna is licensed to fly in winds up to 23kt. Gyrocopter, in conclusion, can withstand a lot more and are generally considered safer.  

Due to its amazing flying capabilities, it’s no wonder Gyrocopters become so popular. Statistics have shown that the sale of these crafts is up 10:1 when compared to planes with wings.
