Welcome to “The Gyrocopter Experience - Perth”. Situated in the gateway to the Highlands, just three miles to the North East of the “The Fair City” along the A94 towards Coupar Angus.
Perth Airport and the Scottish Aero Club are host to the Gyrocopter Experience network of flying schools.
Perth Airport is a licenced airfield and training establishment, offering flight instruction through independent companies in Fixed Wing and Helicopter for Private Pilots and Commercial Pilots alike. For the light sport aviation market, the Scottish Aero Club offers flight training to NPPL level in Weight-Shift and Fixed-Wing 3 axis Microlight, and in association with The Gyrocopter Experience, potential pilots and thrill-seekers alike will be able to trial and undertake training to UK PPL(G) standard.
From Monday to Friday the Gyrocopter Experience offers intensive training courses for potential pilots, and at weekends we offer Air Experience Flights to the general public and private groups. Our aim is to get as many people as possible to experience the thrill of Gyrocopter flying for themselves. Don’t take our word for it – book a trial flight and have a go yourself. You won’t be disappointed!
At the Gyrocopter Experience - Perth, we offer you the opportunity to purchase a trial flight in one of these fantastic flying machines.
Also known as an Air Experience Flight, this is an ideal way of experiencing open cockpit flying, and the wonderful flight characteristics of an Autogyro. If you’ve always wondered what it might be like, then this is the way to find out!
An ideal gift for the budding aviator, we offer a 30 minute experience flight @ £99, 60 minute @ £175, or the 90 minute ultimate trial flight @ £270 (these are book direct prices, please add £5 for a DVD gift pack including voucher). During the flight you will have the opportunity to take the controls and fly the gyro yourself, or you can simply relax and enjoy the panoramic views of the lovely Perthshire countryside. If you later decide to train for your private pilots licence to fly a gyrocopter, then your air experience flight will count towards your training.

Gyrocopter Pilot Training
The Gyrocopter Experience offers 5 day intensive training courses for student pilots. The hourly training rate is based pro-rata @ £139/hr. Courses cater for students wanting to train for a Private Pilot's Licence for Gyroplanes or PPL(G) in addition to advanced flying training for existing pilots. Training courses are held during the week. We have a maximum of two students on each intensive training week. Students take it in turns to fly and depending on their stage of training, may share briefings.
You can expect to fly an average of two hours each day. It might not sound that much, but learning to fly is very absorbing and intense and it takes a while for your brain to assimilate what you’ve been taught. We discourage students from booking intensive training weeks back to back – it isn’t the most productive way to learn as you need time to fully understand and absorb everything you’ve learned. The optimum gap between training weeks is probably between one and four weeks, however it is not unusual to have students who are learning to fly over a couple of years and have longer gaps between each intensive week.
We fully understand and respect that you will probably use valuable vacation time in learning to fly and we make every effort to fly despite sometimes less than ideal weather conditions. We will sometimes rearrange the order that things get taught in an effort to make the best use of the varying British weather conditions. In the event that flying is not possible, we try to switch our attention to the various ground school topics in order to ensure that time isn’t wasted.
We have had great feedback regarding learning on these intensive courses as opposed to training an hour here or there spread across a long period. It is often helpful to remove yourself from your normal everyday life and fully immerse yourself in flying training. However if it is not possible to enroll on an intensive training course, we will endeavour to accommodate your needs on an hour by hour basis.
