Magni Gyro UK - FLY BEFORE YOU BUY

Magni Gyro Ltd are the UK agents for the fantastic range of Magni Gyroplanes.  The Gyroplanes are built in Italy and imported into the UK, ready to fly.  Gyroplanes are "Sport Aviation" aircraft, they are not used commercially - they are flown purely for fun!
Our Gyroplanes have a top speed of 100mph or more, they can cruise for over 4 hours on a tank of fuel which means you can usually travel over 400 miles at a time.  They can be used for serious touring, or they can be used for serious fun around the local area.  Gyroplanes are usually flown a lot closer to the ground than either an aeroplane or a helicopter because they are much easier to land in case of an emergency.  You can land a Gyroplane in an area the size of a tennis court.
Gyroplanes have been around since before second world war but until recently they have been neglected as a popular form of sport aviation.  Magni have been building Gyroplanes for nearly 20 years and supply them all over the world.  Due to legislation, it is only since 2006 that Gyroplanes have been really popular in the UK.  
Magni Gyroplanes are fantastic....try one!

The open cockpit M16C Gyroplane

For the traditional Gyroplane "wind in your hair" feeling, fly the Magni M16C Gyroplane.  The M16C Gyroplane is a two seat "tandem" Gyroplane (this means the passenger sits behind the pilot).  The views are fantastic, there is no "wing" to obscure your vision.

The fully enclosed M24 Orion Gyroplane.

For the unique side-by-side experience, fly the Magni M24 Orion Gyroplane.  The M24 Orion is the only side-by-side factory built Gyroplane available to fly in the UK.  This Gyroplane rivals the Robinson R22 helocopter experience at a fraction of the price.

About Gyroplanes

A Gyroplane looks like a small helicopter but the main difference is that the engine of the Gyroplane is not connected to the rotors.  The rotors are self-propelled by the air flowing through them. This is called Autorotation
A Gyroplane does have an engine, but it is connected to a propeller in a similar way to the engine of a light aeroplane.  The engine provides thrust to move forward and upwards only.
A Gyroplane is often described as a hybrid between a aeroplane and a helicopter.  You control it like an aeroplane...but you have to think like a helicopter pilot.
It's great fun.  A Gyroplane is also called a Gyrocopter or an Autogyro. Read more about it here.

Learn to fly Gyroplanes

You need a licence to fly a Gyroplane in a similar way that you need a licence to fly an aeroplane or a helicopter.
The licence for a Gyroplane is called a PPL(G) and it is different from an aeroplane (PPL(A)) or helicopter (PPL(H)) licence.
If you do not hold any form of pilot's licence you will need to go on a training course of at least 40 hours, pass some written exams and take a flying test.  Getting a pilot's licence is not difficult, it is like learning to drive a car - it just takes a little longer.
If you hold an aeroplane or helicopter licence then the number of training hours is reduced, you also get an exemption from some of the written exams.
