Classic Aero-TV: Pictaio Aerospace – A Side-By-Side Gyroplane

From 2015 (YouTube Version): A Unique Gyroplane Offers Side-By-Side Seating

ANN’s roving News Editor, Tom Patton, stopped to talk about gyro planes while he was attending the U.S. Sport Aviation Expo at Sebring, Florida. He had the chance to talk to Chris Lord, the president and CEO of Pictaio aerospace.

The gyroplane they had on display is unique because it’s a 2-place machine that seats the pilot and passenger side-by-side rather than the more typical tandem seating of other gyro planes. Tom starts his questioning by asking about this configuration. Among other things, Lord points out that it offers more room for the pilot and passenger and more baggage space behind the seats.

Lord describes the aircraft as the SUV of gyro planes and says it’s intended for the recreational flyer market. He says that the side-by-side seating makes transitioning from a fixed wing to a rotor wing gyroplane more familiar. During the interview, Lord goes into detail about performance and features. It only takes a few moments of the video to notice that it’s a unique and sleek design.

The video provides lots of details about this aircraft that delivers a host of features and good performance for the price.
