Private Pilot's Licence Gyrocopter (open cockpit) - PPL(G)

For those of you that have decided to take the plunge and gain the full Gyrocopter Private Pilot Licence PPL(G), you have chosen the right place to learn. Our personal and professional flight training programme in alliance with the International Association of Professional Gyroplane Training (IAPGT), offers the very latest in worldwide best practice, with a fully integrated e-learning platform. The Gyrocopter Experience has taught hundreds of pilots over the last 10 years, and remains the world leader in Gyrocopter Flight Training.

We provide one to one training with our instructor in our MTO Sport gyrocopter with open cockpit and tandem seating. Student pilots are often booked in for weekly intensive courses (Monday to Friday), with an expectation to complete around 10 hours of flight training plus classroom briefings. The benefit of this structure enables students to make large advances in their understanding and skill level in a relatively short period of time. However, you can also book occassional lessons to suit your availibility and pocket.

There are five multi-choice exams to be completed including:

*Air Law
*Human Factors
*Gyroplane Technical

The PPL(G) in a nutshell

- Must be 14 to start logging flights, 16 to go solo and 17 to apply for your licence.
- During your course you must:

*Fly at least 10 hours of solo flight time including three hours of cross country
*Complete two cross country solo flights of at least 25 nautical miles each, including a stop at an aerodrome different from the departure aerodrome.
*Fly at least 25 hours of dual flight time
*Obtain a medical declaration 
*Be granted a FRTOL (Flight Radio Telephony Operators Licence).

- Licence is valid for life but does require currency to fly.
