Gyroplane Discovery Flights are provided in our AutoGyro MTO Sport Aircraft. The base price of $100 includes approximately 90 minutes of total time, which includes ground preparation. The actual flight time will be approximately 30 minutes or less. Price includes Aircraft, Fuel, Instructor and Insurance.
The passenger has the option of remaining within the airport flight pattern and performing several takeoffs and landings, or departing the airport flight pattern and exploring a bit. The most common flight itinerary includes one or two landings at the airport, and a 'half circle' flight around the Frederick area, with views of downtown Frederick and some open spaces.
Additional flight time may be added, simply to extend the experience, or to fly over a particular landmark. Custom flights would be billed at the instructional engine running rate of $200 per hour. Time is billed according to the Engine Running time, referenced by the HOBBS Engine Meter.
The Instructor's Ground time, associated with a particular flight, is not charged. This includes the coordination time, pre-flight planning, pre-flight inspections, aircraft servicing, briefings with the passenger, and post-flight duties. A liability waiver must be signed prior to flight.
Group discounts of 15% can be applied with multiple, individually flown, passengers during the same time period. Show up together, ask questions, take selfies, and fly one at a time. Discounts do not apply to multiple custom flights.
