Gyrocopters are in my opinion one of the best small aircraft experience you will ever have. They are extremely manoeuvrable and way more stable than microlights and other small aircraft. For scenic flights in and around Cape Town they are perfect. The sport has grown from strength to strength in the past few years with many new pilots and old experienced pilots getting their gyrocopter licences.
A gyrocopter takes the best technology from helicopters to fixed wing aircraft and combines them for an awesome flying experience. Book a trip up and down the coast around the beautiful cape beaches or head for the Winelands. Cape Town is also a great place to come and do your gyrocopter training course with plenty of other activities to keep you entertained when you need a break from your studies.
So for tourists and serious pilots alike why not head to Cape Town for your next gyrocopter flight. Above you will find a list of flying schools in the western cape that can assist you with training and scenic flights.
