What is an AutoGyro?

It is a gyroplane. (Some say gyrocopter, autogyro or just gyro) To the FAA, it is a gyroplane. Autogyros are the invention of Juan de la Cierva in 1923. Nearly a forgotten technology, autogyros have regained new popularity around the world thanks to manufacturers like Auto-Gyro GmbH.

Is it safe to fly?

Our gyroplanes will not stall or spin. In the unlikely event of an engine failure, you can easily glide down and make a gentle landing under full control. The gyroscopic nature makes the gyroplane smooth and stable even in windy or turbulent conditions.

Is a gyro difficult to fly?

No. But, get professional training from a Certified Flight Instructor (CFI).

Can I teach myself to fly an AutoGyro?

Absolutely not. For your safety and the safety of others, get professional instruction for a successful and pleasant experience.

Do I need a license to fly a gyro?

Yes.  At a minimum, you will need a Sport Pilot - Gyroplane privilege.

Can I add-on to my existing license?

Yes. Every pilot is unique. The amount of time varies for each person to safely transition to a gyro. The average is about 8-10hrs.

Where do I get training?

See our locations.

Is the kit difficult to build?

No. We do emphasize that you come to a technical builder assist program. Complicated machining and fabrication are done at the factory. You will need to drill some holes, shape some parts and otherwise fabricate enough parts to meet the 51% builder rule for amateur-built aircraft. With the builder assist program, building space, special tools, and expert advice are available to make the process enjoyable and rewarding. Most gyros can be built with this program in 7 to 10 days. Contact AutoGyro USA for more information about the builder assist program.

How long does it take to get one?

Anywhere from aircraft in-stock to 12 weeks and longer depending on the model ordered and factory schedules.

How many are flying?

In the U.S., about 185.  Worldwide, about 2600.

What about spare parts?

We stock most commonly requested parts at our Maryland location. Most requests can be filled with an email or phone call. Our inventory of spare parts will help keep you flying. We pride ourselves on customer service.

What about the factory?

Auto-Gyro GmbH produces about 200 aircraft per year. They employ over 100 skilled technicians and workers. They are constantly refining and developing products for the gyro community from recreational to professional.
