There is a good diverse range of gyrocopters in Ireland for sure - although oddly no Auto-Gyros - "Maybe the air in the Ireland is different" !
Auto-Gyro machines fly as well as any other in ireland, maybe your big book of Gyroplane births and deaths is a tad incomplete!

I'm not a pilot but have been lucky enough to fly in Mi-24 Hind, Mi-2, Mi-17, Lynx HAS3, Gliders, GA
Paddy - are there any on the EI Ireland IAA register ? That was my observation, sorry I should have made it clearer, not "G" machines.

That's all.

Does it make any difference what letters are stuck to the side of the rudder?

Sorry for the thread drift.

The Explorer looks really good, looking at the pics the build quality looks great and they have done a great job with the styling.

The machine structurally looks almost exactly like an ELA, the exception being the 2 piece mast, the titanium, and possibly the mast is tilted forward slightly more.

I'm impressed with an empty weight of 230 kgs too.

Looks lovely.
