Good morning Andrew.....it's Julie here....not sure if you remember me but I met you on that fateful & misty November morning last year, when Andrew & I visited you so that he could have a trial flight in your gyro....well, as you know...you certainly whetted his appetite for learning how to fly a gyro & almost ten months down the line...he's now achieved what he wanted to & it's all thanks to your good self... Andrew is now embarking on a new chapter of his gyro flying career & is so pleased that it started with you & was completed by you...so I personally wanted to thank you for giving Andrew the encouragement & getting him through his GST this weekend...he's had a fantastic time with you & has taken on board all of your advice.... Once he's sorted with a gyro...then you're on the list to visit....& to have a fly over the beautiful countryside that you live in...your a 'top man' Andrew....whom Andrew will always look up to... Kind Regards Julie X-X-X ? Sent from my iPad
Andrew, just to say a big thanks for the introduction flight today. It really was an amazing experience and a fabulous demonstration of some of the capabilities of a modern gyro. You are a supreme professional and ambassador for your sport and you truly did make us both feel very welcome. I am sorting through my calendar to see what gaps I have from work as I am keen to book in for a few hours with you to see how I get on. The pictures are brilliant although you could have airbrushed out some of my 'laughter lines'. It is true when they say 'the camera never lies!' Will be in touch very soon.
At the age of 62 I have just gained my Gyrocopter license under the Instruction of Andrew Lysser at Cumbria Gyroplanes. Throughout I have found Andrew to be not only an excellent Instructor but also a fascinating individual in his own right. Throughout my training he has always been extremely professional, and consistant in his training, demanding the highest standards of himself which one would want to emulate. He is always willing to go the extra mile for his students and I am extremely grateful for all he has taught me. Having gained my qualification I can now really learn to fly Gyro's and hope to do some post graduate mountain flying training with him. Having started flight training with Manchester University Squadron at the age of 18 and obtaining a PPL and latterly an NPPL on Flex and Fixed wing aircraft I can vouch for numerous Instructors but would rate Andrew as being in the top 10%. I would have no qualms in endorsing Andrew and his teaching methods to any future Gyro pilot.
I booked flights for myself and two of my children. We all enjoyed ourselves and, because of my interest in archaeology, Andrew took me over some ancient sites such as an iron age settlement and a Roman fort. My son and my oldest daughter have said this was the highlight of their holiday in the Lake District.
I bought a trial flight (option 2) for my husband's birthday whilst we were staying in the lake district. He absolutely loved it and as a plane enthusiast who has done many flight experiences and is studying his PPL he described this as the best experience ever. Andrew was a brilliant instructor and got some great photos of my hubby
Many thanks for the fabulous week and arranging moderately good weather. All the best until I return to plague you again, Alan
