Is Pamukkaly Gyrocopter Safe?
I would say the Gyrocopter in Pamukkale is the safest attraction of all time. The new generation of professionally designed and constructed gyrocopters is inherently safer than fixed-wing and helicopter aircraft of similar size. Gyros cannot stall or spin and thus are inherently safer than fixed-wing aircraft. A gyrocopter cannot increase height during a hover like a helicopter therefore is not able to take off and land vertically but when it is in the air, the gyrocopter can hover This, together with a very short take-off and landing roll, make the Gyrocopter really easy to fly. It has to be noted that the gyrocopter that is used in this activity meets all the safety requirements and has the approval of civil aviation, which makes this activity absolutely safe. In fact, gyrocopter has many advantages in contrast to helicopters or planes. Firstly, the gyrocopter is still able to fly even in case of engine disconnection. Due to the abovementioned, it can also be characterized as a parasailing activity as the rotating blades continue to rotate irrespective of the engine. Secondly, gyrocopters can fly at a very low airspeed such as 25 knots which makes them ideal for those who wish to enjoy the views. Finally, gyrocopters are all less affected by turbulence, a feature that provides an extra sense of comfort to both, the pilot and the passenger.
