How to Select the Correct Gyroplane to Meet Individual Needs!

     As a Pilot of over 30 years how could I select the correct gyroplane for how and where I wish to fly as they will not let us rent experimental aircraft except for training in models I was not interested in.

     This presentation is the result of 2 ½ years of research to answer that question. Learning why gyroplanes had such a bad safety record in the past, gyroplane stability, and specifically how to select the most stable gyroplane that met my needs and one that I could feel safe lending my trained gyroplane pilot friends and family at fly-ins and vacations.

     Yes, with training, gyroplanes are now safe as all modern gyroplanes have added an adequate air foiled shaped Horizontal Stabilizers positioned on a sufficient moment arm however, you will learn more about this in the presentation.

     If new to rotorcraft; I also suggest you read Greg Germminger’s article "Why Rotors instead of Wings" .
Essentially rotors do not stall and as the video below shows you can land them on their own footprint so it’s like having a parachute available all of the time.

With Training Gyroplanes land like they have a Parachute!

Modern gyroplanes really are one of the safest aircraft to fly and our weakest link today is in using non certified aircraft engines however, they land so easily that few seems to change.

      I hope this presentation will reduce the time from years to about an hour enabling you to learn what it required in order for you to understand for yourself which gyroplanes are stable, why, and which one is right for your altitude, weather, landing fields, and much more...
Sincerely,
John Rountree
