Is it easy to fly a gyrocopter?
Gyrocopters tend to be easier to fly as they only have three flight controls (rudder pedals, a throttle and a control stick) which is way simpler than a plane or helicopter, making it perfect for beginners who have never flown before. via
Are Gyrocopters legal in the US?
Yes. To legally fly in the USA, you need a "Gyroplane Certificate", either a rating under a Private Pilot's Certificate or Light Sport Aircraft Certificate. via
What do you need to build a gyrocopter stranded deep? (video)
Do you need a Licence for a gyrocopter?
Do you need a pilot's licence to fly a gyrocopter? To fly solo in a gyrocopter you do need a PPL(G) - that's to say Private Pilot's Licence (Gyrocopter). However, for these trial lessons no previous experience is necessary and if you're up for it, you'll be able to have a go at the controls during your flight too. via
Can a gyrocopter hover?

Is a gyrocopter safe?
The Gyrocopter itself is known to be one of the world's safest aircrafts. Even if the engine would fail completely a Gyro would still keep on flying due to its unique ability of auto-rotation (self-propelling Rotors). via
Are Gyrocopters safer than planes?
The new generation of professionally designed and constructed gyrocopters is inherently safer than fixed wing and helicopter aircraft of similar size. Because a gyrocopter can descend vertically under full control and land in just few metres of space, without the complexity or cost of a helicopter. via
Can anyone fly a gyrocopter?
Yes, a license is required to fly our gyroplanes! An existing pilot with a minimum of a sport pilot rating may operate a gyroplane after obtaining a gyroplane endorsement on their existing pilot license. On average most pilots can complete this add-on training in 10 - 20 hours. via

What makes the gyrocopter the safest method of flying?
Because of high wing loading gyros handle turbulence much better than similar fixed wing light airplanes. Gyros can land in a very small space with much less training than a fixed wing bush plane. This makes flying lower safely possible. via
How much fuel does a gyrocopter hold?
