Before deciding to start training, take the Pilot Test Lesson. This is the first exercise in our curriculum and is meant to introduce you to the feeling of flying with a gyro. If you like, you can continue your training until a NPPL (G) pilot license is obtained.

For your convenience, Gyrocopter Bulgaria provides experienced lessons, motivational and test flights to various destinations. You can fly MTO-Sport, Calidus or Cavalon over breath-taking landscapes.
