The gyroplane flight manual - Gyroplane Pilot Q&A - Ed s Hangar: Ohio Flight Training.



Under license from Cierva in the 1920s and 1930s, the Pitcairn & Kellett companies made further innovations. [2] Late-model autogyros patterned after Etienne Dormoy 's Buhl A-1 Autogyro and Igor Bensen 's designs feature a rear-mounted engine and propeller in a pusher configuration . The term Autogiro was a trademark of the Cierva Autogiro Company , and the term Gyrocopter was used by E. Burke Wilford who developed the Reiseler Kreiser feathering rotor equipped gyroplane in the first half of the twentieth century. The latter term was later adopted as a trademark by Bensen Aircraft .

An autogyro is characterized by a free-spinning rotor that turns because of the passage of air through the rotor from below. [3] [4] The vertical (downward) component of the total aerodynamic reaction of the rotor gives lift for the vehicle, and sustains the autogyro in the air. A separate propeller provides forward thrust, and can be placed in a tractor configuration with the engine and propeller at the front of the fuselage (e.g., Cierva), or pusher configuration with the engine and propeller at the rear of the fuselage (e.g., Bensen).

Whereas a helicopter works by forcing the rotor blades through the air, drawing air from above, the autogyro rotor blade generates lift in the same way as a glider 's wing, [5] by changing the angle of the air [3] as the air moves upwards and backwards relative to the rotor blade. [6] The free-spinning blades turn by autorotation ; the rotor blades are angled so that they not only give lift, [7] but the angle of the blades causes the lift to accelerate the blades' rotation rate, until the rotor turns at a stable speed with the drag and thrust forces in balance.

This story is not about world records. It is about dreams. When Andreas Stuetz was a little boy he did not miss any episode of his favorite TV series about a flying car, which can also land on water. Andreas told his Mum that as an adult he is going to travel the world in a vehicle like this. She laughed and said: “Boys and their dreams”. His later wife Melanie grew up in East Germany and her childhood dream was to travel without any frontiers, best as cosmonaut. Melanie is not an astronaut yet, but the first female pilot on the world tour by gyrocopter - a kind of flying car in reality.

Andreas and Melanie Stuetz learnt everything they needed to take off in Europe, Africa, Australia & New Zealand, the USA and South America. Between the continents the gyrocopter was shipped. Andy and Mel used this time to visit projects of the childrens’ charity terre des hommes in South Africa, India, Thailand, Peru and Bolivia. The organization is named after Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s memoir “Terre des hommes” (English title: Wind, Sand and Stars ). The pilot couple asked local children about their dreams. And with the marketing of the Weltflug project in book & movie they support them to make childhood dreams come true! More info: article | PSF Magazine, USA .

A gyroplane is defined as a rotorcraft with a non-power driven rotor rotating about an axis which is vertical, or nearly so, when the aircraft is in horizontal flight.

Gyroplanes in the UK are either classified as Amateur Built aircraft or as commercially manufactured Type Approved aircraft.

The PRA (pronounced P – R – A) is a worldwide organization of rotorcraft enthusiasts. PRA includes anyone interested in rotorcraft, and rotorcraft designers, builders, pilots, and instructors. PRA chapters offer camaraderie and rotorcraft experience, welcoming anyone interested in gyro or helicopter flight. The PRA magazine, Rotorcraft , goes to all members and is published 6 times per year.

In the Popular Rotorcraft Association, “rotorcraft” includes anything that uses rotor blades to produce the lift needed to fly, such as helicopters and gyroplanes.  A “rotorcraft” is a specific US FAA “category” of aircraft.  “Helicopters” and “Gyroplanes” are specific U.S. FAA “classes” of rotorcraft.  “Autogyro” or “autogiro” is often the official or colloquial term for gyroplanes in many countries.  “Gyroplane” is the U.S. official term for gyros, and is often used to indicate gyroplanes that meet improved standards of safety and stability.

The Vortex comes with more options than any other design. Full flight instrumentation is available. You can fly this single-place gyro out in the open, or with a partially enclosed body.

The Vortex is equipped with a composite seat which encapsulates the pilot with full support all the way to the top of the helmet, and cushioned with an energy absorbent ejection-seat material. The seat and fuel tank are seperate to keep the pilot away from the fuel. This arrangement is much safer than other designs.

The Vortex has a shock mounted rotorhead, and our high-performance suspension system including swing-arm nosewheel suspension. The Vortex standard engine is a Rotax 582.
