- The price of buying (let alone maintaining) a conventional aeroplane
is measured in tens of thousands of pounds. A Gyroplane on the other
hand, can be yours for a similar price to a used family car.
- Conventional aeroplanes run on special fuel and must generally be
kept in a special place (i.e. at an airfield). Gyroplanes however, will
run on good old filling station petrol and can be kept in the garage
- A competent Gyroplane pilot can take off in the space of two hundred
yards while most fixed wing aeroplanes would need at least double that
(often much more).
