GyroMojo LLC exclusively uses Phil Harwood's Gyropedia as our method of instruction. We use it to guide and monitor all aspects of the student's progress. Alternatively, students use Gyropedia for all phases of ground instruction, and to review and prepare for flight lessons. Gyropedia meets and exceeds the training standard of all nations.
GyroMojo LLC is also part of a voluntary consortium of US Gyroplane Instructors, guided by an International Standard, who follow a Voluntary Code of Practice. We seek to improve the quality of flight instruction, and overall flight safety. We identified many weaknesses and inconsistencies in current Gyroplane Training, and seek to standardize and align a majority of training programs. Improving the knowledge base and safety records of Gyroplane flying, saves lives and also decreases insurance claims and rates.
Our consortium is guided by the IAPGT, the International Association of Professional Gyroplane Training. Our mission is safety first.
When you sign up as a free member on Gyropedia, please link to me, Frank Noe, as your instructor. I can act as your mentor before we even fly together.

Every person that flies a gyroplane has a different set of experiences, and that each and every experience is valuable.
There are often a number of different techniques to handle a scenario, each with their merits.
A lot of knowedge can be applied from other forms of aviation - but a Gyroplane is not a fixed wing aircraft, or a helicopter - a Gyroplane has its own flying characteristics and it is vital for an existing pilot to understand and absorb the differences.
A significant factor in accidents is lack of regular flying. The average pilot flies between 20 and 50 hours a year. Why? Because, despite best intentions, life simply gets in the way.
Safe flying is more about the decisions that you make, than the handling of the gyroplane controls.
Our objective is to ensure that we document as much experience as we can, collate all the different instructional techniques, and propose the "Best Practice" way of handling each scenario.
