Does a gyro cost the same as a helicopter to: Own? Run? Maintain?


No! Helicopters offering our capacity and level of finish will cost at least 10 times as much to purchase, operate and maintain.

Comparing running costs of a UFO to a helicopter

They are very different! A helicopter has to power its rotors to fly and they MUST stay driven to keep flying. An autogyro's rotors are powered by air running over their surface; this makes an autogyro inherently safer than a helicopter and cheaper to run. A helicopter has significantly more moving parts than a gyro; all of these parts wear and need regular maintenance.

Comparing Maintenance costs of a UFO to a helicopter

First, you are able to do all of your maintenance on your gyro, whereas you cannot if you own a helicopter, they need to be maintained by a qualified Aircraft Technician. In addition, the maintenance schedule of a helicopter is extremely more demanding and complicated. At least 10 times more labour required on a Heli compared to a UFO.
