One for the bucket list! Take to the skies in a Gyrocopter or Powered Hanglider with an experienced Instructor and fulfil your aviation dreams. Exhilarating , these unique aircraft will make the flight even more special. If you're feeling confident, the pilot will even let you take the controls.
A day to remember, this is the perfect gift for aviation enthusiasts! View the coastline from the clouds. Before the flight, your Instructor will give you a safety briefing and introduce you to these unique aircraft. Weather permitting you’ll actually be able to try out flying the aircraft yourself! Or just sit back and enjoy the view. Then it’s back down to Earth, but don’t forget to snap a picture.
We have 3 aircraft available. Magni M24 enclosed Rotorcraft Gyrocopter. Ideal for the cooler times of the year and those who prefer to ride in comfort. Magni M16 open cockpit Rotorcraft Gyrocopter. Ideal for warmer times of the year and those that are feeling more adventurous. Airborne Powered Hanglider (Weightshift Microlight) Ideal for warmer times of the year and those that would like to experience weigh-shift. Please advise in the comments when making the booking what aircraft you would prefer. Note that the Rotorcraft Gyrocopter can operate safely in a large window of conditions while the Powered Hanglider is more weather dependent. Although don't worry if you book the powered hanglider and conditions deteriorate on the day we can either re schedule or fly in the Gyrocopter. All of our aircraft are late model, certified and maintained to the highest standard. We are a family owned and operated with over 40 years experience in light aviation.

RedBalloon is your one-stop shop for experiences and curated gifts. We’re so confident you’ll love what you get from us, we’re offering this promise to you…
We want you to have the most enriching experience possible, so if this means swapping your jet boat experience for wine tasting then we’ve got you covered. Simply exchange online or contact our Customer Experience Team and we’ll do the work for you.
Not only do we handpick the best experiences for you, we also guarantee you’ll pay the same as you would buying direct from the experience provider. If you find the same experience advertised at a lower standard price on the same day by the same provider, simply take a screenshot of the experience advertised at the lower price and tell us within 30 days of your purchase and we’ll match it.
We understand life gets busy, which is why all vouchers and gift cards purchased have a 5-year expiry. The only exception to our expiry terms is if the experience has already been booked in. We honour the purchase price of our experiences for 18 months. If you book your experience after this time and the price of the experience increases you can either pay the difference or exchange it for another experience free of charge.
We know the trust consumers place in ratings and reviews is tied directly to authenticity. That’s why we use Bazaarvoice. We believe that reviews should represent the genuine, unbiased, and transparent opinion about the author’s experience with a product or service. Reviews are not altered in any way by anyone other than the original author — including corrections for spelling or grammar. Reviews are not filtered, edited, or deleted simply because they are negative or are lower-rated.
The RedBalloon Price Guarantee does not apply to experiences involving accommodation or Experience Providers' own conditional sales.
