Our Russian gyroplane

Our Russian gyroplane

Autogyro is a frequently used word with the meaning of which problems arise in our country. Many people associate it with the Russian word "fat", but in fact, "gyroplane" has nothing to do with it. You need to focus on the Greek word, which means "circle".


Autogyro is an aircraft that is created on a specific automobile chassis. In simple terms, a gyroplane can both move along roads and fly. Something between a car and a helicopter, although closer, of course, to a helicopter.

Often a gyroplane is called a flying motorcycle, and there is some truth to this. The machine may be open. In flight, the screw rotates due to the flow of incoming air. An important feature of this aircraft is that it is much safer than a helicopter.

If suddenly a problem with the engine occurs in the sky or the fuel simply runs out, the gyroplane will land quite calmly due to autorotation - the screw will continue to rotate, which will be provided by the air masses.

Another feature of flying in an open gyroplane is that the flight takes place at a considerable height, where the temperatures are low.

Pilots are dressed in special suits for which heating is provided - otherwise people may simply freeze.

The video of the magazine “Driving” tells about the features of the domestic gyroplane:

    it’s a “breakthrough” I’m brushing ... you can grind potatoes in the autumn, when there’s nothing to eat, and yes, you also have to grind gasoline ... a rattle-dog to the fig in the yards ..

      it's a breakthrough

      Really a “breakthrough”, given the fact that the USSR still made them.
      The first gyroplane in the Soviet Union was built by enthusiasts. These were the employees of Dmitry Grigorovich’s seaplane design bureau - engineers Nikolai Kamov and Nikolai Skrzhinsky (Information source - Istoriya.RF portal, https://histrf.ru/biblioteka/b/viertoliet-da-nie-tot-istoriia-sovietskikh-avtozhirov )

        Autogyro Kamov, A-7, who was in service with the Red Army Air Force as a reconnaissance spotter.

    Not an article, but baby talk in diapers. At least the word "gyroplane" in the search engine typed. Murzilka pancake.

    It’s not necessary to write nonsense. The gyroplane does not have the right to move on public roads, because it does not meet the technical requirements for vehicles intended for this.
    The fact that he can ride is one thing, and maneuvering and safety for other road users is another. Because nobody him NEVER won't let out on a shared road. hi

      In Russia, a gyroplane may not have the right to move on roads, but .... what do you say to that? https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=XFeihBc9Voc

    Nonsense again!
    Autogyros do not rise to such a height, from the word at all. lol
    One and a half to two km, this is not the height at which the ambient temperature is already significantly reduced, then everyone in the mountains would freeze. Mexico City is the capital of Mexico, it is not particularly cold at an altitude of 2000+ meters, our Caucasus Mountains, too, Altai, Sayan Mountains. In the summer at this height it is quite comfortable. Well, in winter it’s cold below. lol

    Phrase: In flight, the screw rotates due to the flow of incoming air.
    What is it like ? Or did I "smoke" something today?
    On this note, on April 1, I would see the light.
    And they already wrote about the height in the comments.

      About the same as the maple seed rotates when it falls

      The gyroplane has a pulling or pushing screw (propeller) with a drive of torque from the engine. And there is also a freely rotating rotor with blades, creating a lifting force from the incoming air flow.

    A helicopter can’t land on autorotation?

      Why a toy?
      This is the vehicle, and of the flying ones, it is the safest.
      Takeoff and run are the shortest.

        after buying a gyroplane, you need to organize a 100-meter platform for take-off and landing (from where you fly and where you fly), and also build a hangar for storage ... this is the nth amount .... or rent a place in the flying club and come there to fly around ... again the costs ...

          Mow or crush grass on an abandoned plot of land .... Of course, in the city this is unlikely. Only the periphery, but not as distant as the airdrome requires for small aircraft.

          build a storage hangar.

          The gyrocopter itself is low and not wide. Need a building (shed) along the length of the rotor blades.

          rent a place in the flying club and fly there

          Why if your gyrocopter? In the flying club you can take / rent a ride that you liked and with the instructor ....

        What about a paraglider? In case of engine failure, the probability of a safe landing is even higher.

          The steam planes have already broken too much to be called safe. They are very afraid of a gust of wind and the soft wing is afraid of speeding.

          In a paraglider, a drop in speed (they say about the parachute mode) leads to a sharp decrease in the lifting force of the wing and the increased vertical speed of a collision with the ground.
          In a gyrocopter, the speed of the wing (rotor blades) drops slightly even at the moment of zero longitudinal speed - i.e. the blades continue to rotate and plan for vertical landing.

          Paraglider does not apply to the vehicle!

    Finally, the Military Review turned to gyroscopic topics, I am very happy about this, because I have a direct relationship with gyroplanes, moreover, military or dual-purpose gyroplanes. At one time, back in 1994-1996, while already in the rank of colonel, I was the head of the test team of 8 STCI them. V.P. Chkalov and we tested one of the first Russian gyroplanes designed by Igor Zaytsev, which was designed and manufactured at a pilot plant of the above-mentioned institute. This two-seater gyroplane was called "Ratnik" and was planned for use in several versions (patrol, reconnaissance, combat and rescue). Unfortunately, due to resistance from foreign "advisers", we have not managed to breach this position and in Russia so far only a few enterprises have managed to master the production of these unique aircraft. Moreover, the only domestic gyroplane that has been certified and prepared for serial production at IAPO Irkut (it took about 17 years !!!) was discontinued and in 2020 this project was curtailed. You can only guess who is at hand! I am currently leading a project for the development of all small aircraft in RUSSIA, which can be found on our website www.avialine.su

    "A gyroplane is an aircraft that is built on a particular car chassis." - live a century, study a century, you dumplings fell from a fork and hiccups made it. "THIS BREAKTHROUGH" thought Stirlitz.
