“Gyrocopter Bulgaria” has a team and equipment and offers theoretical and flying training in training programs approved by DG “CAA” in Bulgarian and English.
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. If a friend of yours has a dream to fly and become a pilot, make it a gift with a Flight Lesson Voucher.

Students must have completed basic education, have a valid medical certificate. A candidate may be admitted to the first individual flight during the training at the minimum age of 16 years. Candidates for NPPL (M) -G must be at least 17 years old.
The applicant for an FI (M) -G certificate must be at least 18 years old, have a valid NPLP (M) -G license and a valid medical certificate. The candidate must have at least 250 hours of flight hours as a PIC, and 150 hours as a PIC of class (G).
Pilots holding a CPL / ATPL class (A) or (H) professional pilot license are trained on the same program but only covering subjects with specifics for gyrocopters.
Theoretical training is done before flying training begins. It should include at least 60 hours of NPPL (M) – (G) and 125 hours NPPL (M) -G training. The candidate passes examinations for verifying the theoretical knowledge and, upon a positive result, receives a certificate for a completed theoretical course.
The theoretical exams in “Gyrocopter Bulgaria” must be taken successfully before flying training begins.
For flight training, the learner must cover, with an instructor, at least 30 NPPL (M) -G and 20 hours for NPPL FI (M) -G, of which at least 10 hours should be solo flights and at least 3 hours should be solo route flights with landing on a landing site not less than 25 nm (45 km) from the place of take-off.
Immediately before the flight test, the NPPL (M) -G candidate shall take an oral examination on recognizing the type of gyro on which the test will be carried out.
Flight examinations at “Gyrocopter Bulgaria” are made after finishing the flying training before flight inspector FE (M) -G and for instructors – respectively, before FIE (M) -G.
The Class G Recovery Program includes at least 7 hours of flight, of which at least 3 are solo, under the supervision of an instructor.
The course for switching to another type of gyro is intended for pilots holding a NPPL (M) -G license wishing to fly a type of gyro that they do not know. Gyrocopter Bulgaria is training on MTO-Sport, Calidus and Cavalon.
