Aerial Photographs of Dalston Taken by Simon Ledingham
These pictures were taken by Simon Ledingham from his gyrocopter based at Carlisle airport and published by kind permission of Visit Cumbria.
Like a helicopter, a gyroplane generates the lift needed to fly by using rotors rather than wings - that is the one and only similarity they have. Unlike a helicopter, the rotors are not actually powered - all they need to keep moving is a flow of air over their surfaces. The lift this creates will become a self-sustaining force which both keeps the aeroplane in the air and keeps the rotors turning. Also unlike a helicopter, a gyroplane has a propeller which is powered by the engine to generate thrust which moves the machine forward.
