I've browsed the internet sites you offer as evidence and I have a few concerns as to your argument.
The reason for the many, many fatalities in England can be attributed to two key people, Ken Wallis and John Kitchen, who to this day still claim that gyros, with teetering rotor blades, do not need a horizontal tail. Both of these pilots have no technical understanding of the difference between static stability (which most gyros have) and dynamic stability which gyros (without a horizontal tail) do not have. They both preach, that gyros do not need a horizontal tail and many people have listened to them and have died as a consequence. In the USA, we know the truth.
I'm no expert (don't claim to be) but I'd question the validity of much of this.
The queries I have are highlighted in black
1) Many, many?--is that tens, dozens or hundreds? The website highlights an accident in 1970--that if my arithmetic hasn't yet failed me is 36 years ago. If the last time one killed someone is 36 years ago then it's a bloody sight safer than most hobbies which involve internal combustion engines.
2) Ken Wallis apparently knows nothing about these machines--interesting statement.
3)Ken wallis is also through negligence the cause of many deaths.
I'd have thought I might have heard something of all these people being killed. The news reptiles are usually keen to fill the endles hours of TV news with death.
Smells like hysterical author syndrome to me.
Got any real technical evidence?
Also from the other piece:-
Lack of proper training is the number one killer of Gyroplane pilots
So where is the inherently dangerous machine element there?
I could make the statement:-"Snorting Cocaine is the number one killer of solo motorcyclists"
That statement in itself doesn't make motorcycles inherently dangerous.Please note.
I added the statement below after I'd written the stuff above. I do accept that there has been a number of fatalities since 1970.
Also looking through the AAIB site the last three fatal accidents with these aircraft, 1989, 1996 and 2003, it seems the probability of cause is pilot error. In two cases it seems the pilots were inexperienced on the machines in question
I look forward to your response.
