Whatever you call these ‘Little Nellie’ flying machines, they’re agile and easy to fly, enabling you take control on your very first flight. We've got gyrocopter lessons at locations dotted around the country, at some great clubs and training schools. If you've tried the rest, isn't it time you took to the skies in a funky autogyro?
• Fly open cockpit gyros from Rochester Airport Kent • All aircraft are dual-controlled & tandem seating • Experience the phenomenon of autorotation • You have the chance to sit up front if you want to

Who it's not for
They might look a tad fragile, but autogyros are actually really stable. However, if you’re a nervous flyer you probably won’t be convinced. If that’s the case, maybe look at a driving experience, where you keep your feet firmly on the ground?
