In fact, you will be surprised at just how easy it is to fly a gyroplane and how smoothly it soars through the sky. If you consider that a gyroplane cannot stall and that it practically floats in the air, your flying experience will be relaxed and highly addictive.
Not your average flight academy
The modern FlyDrive Academy features boardroom-like briefing rooms, a VIP lounge, simulator rooms, and a complete learning platform to suit your exact needs.
The simple steps to get your licence
The PAL-V FlyDrive Academy has divided the flight training into 6 modules of a 5-day program that combines hands-on flying with relevant theory and simulator exercises. The training will allow you to obtain a Private Pilot's License for the PAL-V Liberty and has been designed to be simultaneously challenging and enjoyable.

We will get you flying ‘hands-on’ from day 1. You will learn the basics of flying, take-offs and landings, and how the aircraft behaves in the air.
Advanced Manoeuvres & Solo Flying
We will help you understand some of the special features of a gyroplane with more advanced manoeuvres. You will learn how to use navigation aids and communicate on the radio. You will undertake your first solo flight!
Prepare for your pilot license
In the last module, we will prepare you for your skills test. You will practice until you feel confident and ready to obtain your Pilot's License.
