Magni Gyro UK are the UK Agents for the fantastic range of Magni Gyroplanes


Magni Gyro UK are the British 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 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.  Following the arrival of the first factory-built gyroplanes to the UK in 2006, gyroplanes have become hugely popular and are one of the fastest growing areas of sport aviation.  
Magni Gyroplanes are fantastic....try one!

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.
Gyroplanes are oftemn flown closer to the ground than an aeroplane or helicopter becasue they are much easier to land in the case of an emergency.  You can land a gyroplane in an area the size of a tennis court. 
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.
