This is where it all starts. The thrill of 'the magic carpet ride'. Unlike any other aircraft, piloting a gyroplane is unique in itself. In my opinion the gyro is the safest aircraft in the sky. The inventor of the 'autogiro', Juan de la Cierva, set out to make an aircraft that will not stall or spin. Juan succeeded in January of 1923 with the first successful fight of the gyroplane. The spinning rotor is not powered in flight. In the unlikely event of engine failure the rotor acts much like a parachute and gently floats you back to earth. The gyroplane looks similar to a helicopter but flies much more like a fixed wing aircraft. Fly with us and you will see what the 'gyro grin' is all about. This discovery flight also makes a great gift.
