Ive had a long standing interest in these aircraft, and through various forums and a couple contacts, it seems as though a couple flight training unit`s may actually be starting up in Ontario relatively soon! In the next couple weekends, I may get my first flight too, yeehaw!

Time for some crazy, snake-dropping fun times!

is it safe? It isn't like fixed wing plane. If this one loses power, it will fall like a stone.

Actually they`re always in autorotation, so the main rotor isn`t powered at all. If you lose the engine, you`re already in parachute mode, you have a very controlled and gentle descent back to earth Razz

They`re actually much safer & docile than fixed wing, and also more maneuverable Very Happy

Every time I see those Gyro-copters they make me think of the early attempts at flying.






Maybe you can take you can take Tetris up with you and can do some sky diving! Very Happy

Hah! I might actually be going up this weekend if time & weather permit!

Anyway, yes they ARE very stable machines, and I'm more inclined to feel safe flying them than I would a single engine light plane, or a light heli.. and I'm an aircraft maintenance engineer... I know these things Wink

Anyway this is one of my favourite in-flight videos. You get a good sense of their operation and get a simple play-by-play from engine start through prerotation (spins up the main rotors on the ground to reduce takeoff roll), and flight.
