The exhilaration of the flight and the beauty of Pamukkale below made it one of the most memorable parts of my holiday in Turkey!
I took the ride at sunset, which I recommend for some beautiful photos.
Umit, the pilot was extremely professional and put at ease any fears or jitters I might have had about flying in the gyrocopter. When you talk to him you will know that you are in good hands. The landing and takeoff were smoother than a commercial flight!
It’s an experience not to miss if you are going to Pamukkale- one of the most memorable parts of my trip!
Just got back from my first gyrocopter flight and can easily say that this was the best day of life. What a great experience skimming over the white cliffs of Pamukkale and over the remains of the ancient city, great views at all. I felt totally safe with the pilot (Ümit) and the take off and landing were so smooth. Everyone should have a go!!!
If you are looking for a unique way of taking in the stunning scenery that Pamukkale region of Turkey has to offer, then don’t miss the opportunity of a gyrocopter flight with Excursion Mania.
Our hot air balloon flight was cancelled due to wind, but we wanted to see Pamukkale from the sky, so booked a gyrocopter flight with Excursion Mania. They are a new business in the area that offers a most professional and impressive experience. All you have to do is get strapped in, helmeted up and sit back and enjoy the experience. Don’t forget to take a camera, as you will get amazing photo and video opportunities.
Thanks once again to the Excursion Mania team ( and our pilot Umit) for a wonderful experience.
