Weekends in Jeddah usually carry a dull cacophony of boredom sighs.

For beach enthusiasts, not much is available to do other than watching the waves’ rhythmic percussions against the rocks. But hidden in the northern plains of Jeddah in Al Mohmmediah district near Red Sea mall, is a chance for sea lovers to hover over the spectacular skyline of Jeddah in an exhilarating gyrocopter ride; the West Sky Aviation Academy.

Undiscovered by most people, the West Sky Aviation Academy is an aviation club that was founded by Muhammad AlGarni, chief pilot and instructor in training and flying gyrocopters. His passion and love for flying gyrocopters, which are essentially airborne vehicles similar to helicopters, pushed him to launch West Sky in 2011. This academy provides opportunities for casual rides with family and friends, with each ride costing 350 riyals per person.
