In the study I did of 34 gyroplane accidents with final reports the average age was 61.5.Tyrogyro, now if you REALLY want to ruffle some feathers, correlate the ages of the accident pilots to see if you can come up with a demographic pattern.
i.e. "Why yes , you can fly a gyro at 70 years old for the first time sir, but recent studies have proven that even with all your money and free time you have an 82% chance of a blade flap in an ELA before your first 100 hours! Still want to buy it?"
I just trained someone for their 80th birthday.
He was one of my best and fastest learners.
I have an 84 year old coming for training in April.
