Roger has been a pilot for more than 40 years with over 9.000 flying hours experience – so you’re in good hands!. Apart from being a gyrocopter pilot and long-time instructor,he’s also an Aeroplane and Helicopter pilot. He’s a former helicopter flight instructor and award-winning helicopter pilot. He’s a previous winner of the precision flying section of the British Open Helicopter Championships.
Roger has been flying Gyrocopters or Gyroplanes as they are also called for more than 35 years,from very early and very basic gyrocopters right up to modern-day state of the art machines. He is one of the most experienced Gyrocopter pilots/instructors in Europe. Roger operates both the Rotorsport MT03 and the Italian-made Magni M16c. Both are open-cockpit and fitted with dual controls,so everyone gets the opportunity of‘having a go’ during their Gyrocopter experience flight.
Roger runs Lake District Gyrocopters and flight school from his beautiful airstrip at Berrier. Berrier is located inside the Lake District National Park,just a short drive from both Keswick and Ullswater – so when we take off from Berrier,we are just minutes away from the Lakes , mountains and valleys of this most beautiful part of Britain.
Here Roger is pictured with Griff Rhys Jones who he recently flew around the Lake District for a new television series
