In order to understand Gyroplane training, it is best to understand a brief insight into the organisations and requirements which form the Gyroplane community.
Training of Gyroplane pilots in the UK is mandated by the Civil Aviation Authority who are responsible for all areas of Gyroplane flying. ie. PPL(G) Syllabus, Aircraft Design, Build and Airworthiness, Personal licenses and Training and Aircraft Certificates and Permits to fly.
The CAA primarily only legislate and oversee the operations of Gyroplane’s, which it does in collaboration with organisations who have a vested interest in the training, manufacture and interests of the pilots.
In the UK Gyroplane world, the primary organisations of note are:
Generally, to start off on your Gyroplane adventure, you would:-
- become a member of the British Rotorcraft Association (optional, but they are there to represent your interests)
- become a member of the International Association of Professional Gyroplane Training, just to access their endless wealth of information on Gyroplane’s is reason enough,
- choose a type of Gyroplane which fits your style and budget (best way is to take a trial flight)
- sign up with a school, train, pass the theoretical subjects and flying exam to obtain your license
- decide wether to buy a Gyroplane, join a syndicate (a group of like minded pilots sharing a machine) or Rent.
