What is a gyrocopter?

A gyrocopter (also called autogyro) is a rotary-wing aircraft that flies by means of autorotation. Unlike a helicopter, the rotor of a gyrocopter is not powered directly by a motor, but turns by the action of the relative airflow on the blades.

The Flight

Later, you will go out to the runway, go up to the cockpit and do the pre-flight inspection before starting the takeoff.

From takeoff to landing you will have a magnificent panoramic view surrounded by beautiful nature.

The routes depend on the flight durations, approximately they are like this:

  • Flights of 15 minutes fly over the Villacastín area and with 20minutes reservoirs located south of the vicinity, such as the Voltoya Reservoir, Aceña or the Valtravieso Reservoir.

  • With 45 minutes allows you to fly over a series of castles, such as Arévalo, Coca, Cuéllar, Pedraza, Turégano, the Alcazar of Segovia ... all wrapped in natural landscapes.
