Cumbria Gyroplanes are now based at Carlisle Airport. After your flight you can visit the Solway Aviation Museum, have lunch in Cafe Stobart and shop in the City.
"The world of gyroplanes has progressed so much in the past 5 years thanks to the introduction of stable two seat gyroplanes such as the Rotorsport MT03, the Sport, Magni M16 & 24 and not forgetting the fully enclosed Calidus and Cavalon. I knew that one day we would be blessed with these types of flying machines so I have started building a flight training school here at Carlisle Airport in Cumbria.
I have based the flying school on a professional, accessible and friendly basis, located in open airspace with superb facilities. Briefing room, Club House and Cafe Stobart. We have a full time CAA approved gyroplane instructor with approx 2000 hours experience and Ground School Examiner so everything can be completed here.
I have flown in the Lake District since 1972. You can be assured of both my flying skills and Lake District knowledge. l will fly you over some of the most breath-taking Lake District scenery. The beautiful county of Cumbria is saturated with stunning lush green valleys and rugged mountain views. During a trial/scenic flight you'll see landmarks such has Derwentwater, Skiddaw Summit, Bassenthwaite Lake and the historic landmark Hadrian's Wall. The unique scenic/trial flight experience is a fun and exhilarating way to explore the Lake District."
