Hi!
Where can I try and subsequently train to fly Gyrocopters in Ireland?
http://www.gyroflying.com" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; seems to be out of business? At least web site is gone.
Thanks!!

You can't....

I was (on more than one occasion) pointed to go to the UK to fly with an instructor called Chris Jones: http://www.chrisjonesgyroplanes.com" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Thanks for information. Looks like a well organised operation.

Have you an idea of what you are going to do after you obtain a ppl(g)? (if that's what you intend)
It looks like unless you own your own Gyro, options in Ireland are limited.

Hi. I have PPL fixed wing and PPL (H) - which I did when living in UK twenty years ago!
I would only go for the PPL(g) if I intended to buy a Gyro. Ideally something enclosed and with side by side for two persons. Some nice machines now in the market!!

Well, if you do decide to go over let me know... I might just go with you. I'm looking for an excuse ;)
I was thinking to get some experience, maybe start with 20hours on a 1 week trip
