EU exit

Please note that, in the event of UK participation in EASA and mutual recognition of licences and certificates ceasing, some CAA website content and application forms may continue to carry the EASA logo or reference the EU or EASA rather than the UK CAA in the short term. These will be updated in due course following the outcome of the transition period negotiations on the long-term aviation relationship between the UK and the EU. In the meantime, the guidance provided and the application forms accessed via the CAA website portal will continue to be valid.

Title:The Aerodynamics of Gyroplanes
Description:This report describes research work undertaken for the Civil Aviation Authority by the University of Glasgow between November 1993 and June 2008 under the study entitled Aerodynamics of Gyroplanes, instigated by the 1991 Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB) review of the airworthiness of Air Command series of gyroplanes. Elements of this study include analytical, wind tunnel and flight test activities. Research included the comparison of a mathematical model of the aircraft validated against actual flight test data. The Report also presents results from a number of associated studies, a literature review, a study of teeter margin, an assessment of blade flexibility on rotor and aircraft stability and a review of BCAR Section T.
