Discovering the Costa del Sol from a new perspective. This is what Autogirofun offers. With a gyroplane, which is a so-called ultra-light plane, you take off from the flight center in Villanueva de Trabuco (about 30 minutes by car from Málaga). On a map participants can choose where to fly: for instance, you can fly over the white village of Iznájar, Torcal de Antequera or the mountainous landscape of the Axarquía with a view to the beaches between Nerja and Torremolinos. A flight with Autogirofun takes about 30 to 35 minutes.

Experience Report
On a pleasant day at the end of January 2020 we drive to the flying center in Villanueva de Trabuco. There, the pilot Juan is already waiting for us. He first explains to us how and where we will fly. Some minutes later we start. On a runway the ultra-light plane picks up speed and finally takes off. There is no recoil like in a passenger plane. You literally glide into the air. The trip leads us into the mountainous landscape of the Axarquía. And soon we get an unbelievable beautiful view. In the south we can see the snow-covered top of the mountain Maroma in Vélez-Málaga. In the east the snowy hills of the Sierra Nevada and in the west the beach of Torremolinos. We comfortably are passing the rock massifs. My camera was running practically around the clock. Juan uses a microphone and headphone system to communicate with me. He explains every step in detail, which makes the trip an unique experience. It is just awesome to experience the Costa del Sol in this way. Therefore we absolutely recommend Autogirofun.

Information about the aircraft
Autogirofun flies with a gyroplane of the Spanish brand Ela which is based in Córdoba. The engine of the aircraft is a Rotax 914 with a maximum of 114 HP. “A flight in a gyroplane is probably the safest flight method around”, says tour operator Juan Melgarejo. “Unlike classic helicopters, the engine is only needed for take-off. As soon as you are in the air, the connection between the propeller and the engine is disconnected and the propeller is driven by the winch.” (Fotos/Videos: mit)
