Into The Blue say:
This unusual aerial gyrocopter experience gives you the chance to discover what it's like to fly a hybrid of a helicopter and fixed wing plane. The first prototypes of gyrocopters were invented back in 1919 by Juan de la Cierva and have proved eternally popular due to their flight agility and simplicity of design and construction. Flying in one of these rotor-motion machines will be a sky-high experience like no other! Also known as gyroplanes or rotorplanes, these modern gyrocopters are dual-controlled twin-seater aircraft with a tandem layout. If you are keen, your experienced gyrocopter pilot will be happy for you to sit in the front for your flight, giving you the best views and the chance to help them with the start-up procedures. Gyrocopters are unique in using the phenomenon of autorotation - where forward motion causes the rotor blades to spin and produce lift. An engine and prop provide thrust, like a plane or microlight, but the rotors don't need an engine to drive them (unlike a helicopter with directly driven rotors), relying instead on the aerodynamic force of moving air to rotate them. But don’t worry, you won’t be tested on any of this technical info during these gyrocopter flights!
