You can do a short scenic flight in a gyrocopter near Upington in the Northern Cape. A gyrocopter is a high tech microlight rotary aircraft that sort of looks like a cross between a helicopter, a microlight, a lawnmower and a dragonfly. But it is a safe and awesomely fun and efficient little flying machine. As well as enjoying a scenic flight, you can do flight training and even buy a gyrocopter - either whole or in kit form like an Ikea couch. Allen keys not supplied.
