Chris Jones Gyroplanes
Gyroplanes, Gyrocopters, Autogiros they all cover the same type of aircraft, this being a cross between a fixed wing aeroplane and a helicopter. A gyroplane needs 50 to 150 yards to take off but only a few yards in which to land, this makes them one of the safest aircraft to fly. The rotor cannot stall like a fixed wing and they are far less complicated to fly than a helicopter and so much cheaper to run.
Following the announcement by the Department of Transport Gyroplane Trial flights and lessons can resume on Monday 12th April.
Kirkbride Airfield will be open to visiting aircraft as from Monday 29th March but please PPR first.
