Flying a gyrocopter is a great way to enjoy the spectacular views of Dubai without going too extreme.
Skyhub Gyrocopter is a company created on the basis of Skydive Dubai, specializing in familiarization flights on a gyrocopter. This aircraft looks like a tiny helicopter. This type of sports aviation is not available in all countries of the world, even in the UAE it appeared only a few years ago. Where, more than in Dubai, an ultra-modern metropolis with unforgettable architecture, located between the hot desert and the turquoise waters of the Persian Gulf, there is something to see from a bird's eye view!
According to the pilots, the gyrocopter is more like an airplane, since it also requires acceleration on the runway. It is light and maneuverable, but depends on weather conditions. Flights are possible from early morning to four in the evening. Mandatory requirements include the passenger's age over 17 years and weight up to 105 kg.
There are fully open models of the gyrocopter, and there are closed "capsules", both accommodate a pilot and one passenger. In the closed cabin, the passenger sits next to the pilot, in the open - behind him. Of course, in the "cabriolet" the view is better, there are no barriers preventing you from enjoying the view and making beautiful shots that you will definitely hurry to share with your friends. Here the wind is in your face and a full sense of freedom, you can spread your arms and feel like a bird flying freely over the city. A closed cabin gives more confidence to those who are afraid of heights or do not want to ruin their hair. You should specify which gyrocopter you will get in advance. If you want, you can fly in a pair with a second gyrocopter, if you want to share this adventure with your loved ones. You will be able to wave to each other and make unforgettable shots in the sky.
The flight route is perfect: start at the Dubai Marina, circle over the Palm tree, views of Burj al Arab, artificial Islands of Mir and back to the Marina along the coast. The speed in flight is from 100 to 120 km / h, its duration is due to weather factors, but you can safely count on 20 minutes in the sky. Unforgettable bright minutes that stick in your memory for a long time.
Light sports aviation is not an extreme type of recreation. Even the most cautious guests will not be afraid in flight. Experienced pilots will positively set up and relax any passenger. Igor, a Russian-speaking experienced world-class pilot, will assure you before the start that the fear of heights is just a mindset, not a physical feeling. And to change it, he will tell a lot of interesting stories from experience, explain the basics of controlling an aircraft and will not even let you remember the excitement.
Frank, an experienced pilot from Hungary, also speaks a little Russian, endlessly jokes and instills confidence in him from the first seconds of the flight, which he will definitely start with Gagarin's "let's Go". In the sky, he will let you hold the wheel and show a couple of tricks when he sees that the passenger is comfortable at altitude.

In the Navy there is another aircraft – a paramotor. You may have noticed these unusual cars under the canopy of a parachute in the sky above JBR. Paramotor does not accelerate above 70 km and is the calmest walking transport in the sky over Dubai. Unlike the gyrocopter, it is flown at sunset, and the route captures another part of the coast-over JBR beach, Bluewaters island and the huge Eye Dubai Ferris wheel.
