The gyrocopter is a machine that is half ULM, half helicopter, and is very safe and stable. You will admire the landscapes in open air (open cabin) with a 360° view. It is propelled by a 100-horsepower ROTAX engine and is equipped with a radio, transponder, GPS, emergency beacon, and life jackets (in case of overwater flights). It is stabilized by a rotor like the ones used to stabilize helicopters, except this one is driven by the relative wind. The gyrocopter is commonly used by institutions for air surveillance. Take off between 20 and 100 meters, landing between 0 and 10 meters.
Your certified “multi-axis” microlight (wheels and seaplane) and gyroplane pilot is thoughtful and will passionately describe the landscapes you will fly over.
