Specifications continued, here are some measurements of key importance.

The UFO-HeliThruster makes it bigger than any gyro in its class. There is 1400 (55 inches) shoulder room.

There is 1100 (43 inches) of headroom, and that is measured from the top of the seat to the cabin roof.

There is 1200 (47 inches) of useable legroom, that is, from the seat back to the pedals.

The cabin of course is much larger than any comparable aircraft. No problem here if your tall, neither does it matter that you weight 250 pounds. This is comfort like you have never seen it before.

+Cabin enclosure Width with doors on = 1400 meters (55").
+Cabin enclosure Length, nose to back of cabin =1680 meters (66").
- Giving an overall effective leg room of 1200 meters (47") from the pedal to the back rest of the seat. Remember that measurement is not taken from the bulkhead or from the nose. The back of the seat has the padding and the Gas Tanks between you and the bulkhead and there is quite a lot of room in front of the pedals to the nose.

More data
+Cabin Height from floor to ceiling = 1370 meters (54")
+Effective Cabin Width - back of door opening = 1400 meters (55")
+Effective Cabin Height - from top of seat squab to ceiling 1100 meters (43")
