On the upper road which links Almaty with Kaskelen, there is a resort where a special kind of activity takes place due to the good location and right direction of mountain breeze. It is gyro. A gyroplane is a hybrid of a helicopter and a plane. It takes off like a plane and flies like a helicopter. The gyroplanes can land on very small open space and that is why it is one of the safest methods of flying.
‘Motorbikes of the Sky’ usually have an open cockpit. It is one of the most thrilling and wonderful experiences. The flights are done with the help of a professional pilot.
The distance from Almaty is around 25 km. The road is good. As a rule, rain and strong wind seem to be the only possible setbacks for flights and can be practiced all year round.
