DiNelly eXoGyro family - World´s first 4 door UL gyrocopter as special mission aircraft
The gyrocopter’s main advantages originate in it being a microlight driven by autorotation. Therefore, it is able to fly extremely slowly while being very agile. In addition, due to the rotating blades it is impossible to stall. Short take-off and landing distances (10 to 50 meters) enable the gyrocopter to take-off almost vertically and also to land with high approach angles.
The gyrocopter is thought to be one of the safest aircrafts in the world. Should the thrust-generating propeller fail, the rotary-wing stays in autorotation. This allows the pilot to slowly and safely land the gyrocopter. In fact, landing the gyrocopter in an emergency situation is exactly the same procedure as landing it under normal conditions.
The gyrocopter can be flown safely and steadily under both strong wind and turbulent conditions.
In addition to the good handling qualities, the operating and maintenance costs of the gyrocopter are of a much lower level, especially when compared to a helicopter. This results from the simplified mechanics of the aircraft; the basic rotary-wing system and the cost-efficient propeller-driven engine. When the rotor is dismounted, the gyrocopter requires little space and can be easily transported on a trailer.
It is therefore physically and technically proven that the gyrocopter is much easier and safer to fly than a helicopter and a surface aircraft. Also, the landing of a gyrocopter without motorization (e.g., by a failure) differs only minimally from normal landing with motor force. The rotor is and always remains in autorotation during the entire flight phases, and for the pilot, the unmotorized landing of the flight behavior is identical to a motorized landing. Even when landing with a failed engine, the gyrocopter needs only 10 to 50 meters as a landing area. If the engine is out of operation on a surface aircraft and an emergency landing is required, this aircraft will require several hundred meters to several kilometers, depending on the type of aircraft.

Required Flight Training: 20 hours of total flight time, including:
In general, no. However, gyroplanes can have a relatively short take-off run, and a zero-foot landing run is possible. Some gyroplanes have a jump take-off capability that is obtained by pre-rotating the rotor blades to high speeds and then using the stored energy to jump into the air.
Typically around 4 to 1. That is, four feet forward for every one foot of descent. While this appears to be nothing compared to a fixed-wing glide ratio, should an emergency landing be required this allows for a safe glide path and landing to terrain almost directly below the gyrocopter.
The length of the gyroplane take-off roll depends on the wind, the amount of rotor RPM gained during pre-rotation, and other factors, such as density altitude, aircraft loadin and pilot technique. The take-off roll can vary from nearly zero to several hundred feet.
Like most other aircraft, the gyroplane airframe has a virtually unlimited life expectancy. The rotor, propeller and engine will have a varying lifetime, depending on the manufacturer. The typical TBO for engines normally varies between 1000 and 2000 hours.
This will depend primarily on the engine and the pilot's courage. A fuel-injected engine can operate at higher altitudes than a normally aspirated engine. A recent gyroplane altitude record was set at over 20,000 feet;
Absolutely! The gyroplane is a very unique aircraft with flight characteristics that differ greatly from both airplanes and helicopters. Experienced fixed-wing pilots will have some un-learning to do and typically need about 15 hours or more to transition to a gyroplane. However, helicopter pilots, due to their rotorcraft knowledge and experience, can usually make the transition in around 10 hours.
Most of us consider the gyroplane to be one of the the safest aircraft of all, the primary reason being: they can't stall. With proper training, flying a gyroplane is an extremely safe and enjoyable sport.
Unlike helicopters, which must make an immediate and difficult transition from powered flight to autorotation, the gyroplane is always in autorotation. So while an engine failure will usually result in an off-field forced landing, the gyroplane's low landing speed and the short landing distance required makes this is an extremely safe operation. As a part of standard flight training, your instructor will ensure you are competent to perform this maneuver safely.
Unless your gyroplane falls into the ultra-light category (under 255 lbs), the answer is YES. Your gyroplane will require an N-number and must be registered with the FAA. It will also require an Experimental Airworthiness Certificate. It dpends of national airwothiness rules. At the most countries gyrocopters are ultralight aircrafts.
Once your gyroplane has an Experimental Airworthiness Certificate, and you have flown the required number of test hours in a designated area, you may apply for a Repairman certificate. This certificate allows you to repair your own gyroplane and perform all required inspections. If your gyrocopter is certified as ultralight aircraft, you are allowd to perform the maintenance at your own, also depending at the regulations of the manufacturer.
All three terms refer to the same type of aircraft. Autogiro was the term applied to this type of flying machine by its original inventor, Juan de la Cierva. Later, when Igor Bensen marketed the plans for his single-place machine in the USA, he trademarked the name "Gyrocopter". However, gyroplane is the official FAA designation for this Category/Class of aircraft.
