Can a Gyrocopter hover like a helicopter? PDF Print E-mail
When it is in the air, the gyrocopter can hover, however it cannot increaase height during a hover like a helicopter therefore is not able to take off and land vertically.? The gyrocopter requires a very short distance to take off, about the length of a football pitch; and an even shorter distance to land, about the length of a tennis court.? (Although you would of course have to take the net down if you wanted to land safely!!!)
