Put simply – a Gyrocopter is like a helicopter except that the engine is not connected to the rotors – they freewheel (or autorotate). A Gyrocopter has a propeller (like an aeroplane) and the forward motion of the gyrocopter through the air as a result of the propeller turning, forces wind through the rotors in turn making them autorotate.
There is no difference between them.
You can wear anything that is comfortable for you.
It has a propeller connected to an engine which moves it forward and which in turn pushes air through the rotors (like running with a child’s windmill). The rotors spin fast enough to create “lift” which lifts.
As the engine does not control the rotors, they keep turning at exactly the same speed with or without the engine. In the event of an engine failure, the Gyro will glide to the ground in a very slow and controlled manner. This makes the Gyro one of the safest type of aircraft to be in should the engine fail.
When it is in the air, the gyrocopter can hover, however it cannot increase height during a hover like a helicopter therefore is not able to take off and land vertically. The gyrocopter requires a very short distance to take off, about the length of a football pitch; and an even shorter distance to land, about the length of a tennis court. (Although you would of course have to take the net down if you wanted to land safely!!!)
Yes, you can take camera during the flight.
No, you can’t. It is two seater aircraft including one pilot and one passenger only.
