FAQs


Can I purchase online?

Soon… Very soon.  We will be actively working on additions and enhancements to our site over the next few weeks / months. In the meantime, give us a call! We’d love to talk to you!

Can I fly without a license?

No. These machines do not meet the FAA part 103 Ultralight classification in terms of max weight, fuel capacity, and top speed. To legally fly, you will need at least a sport pilot license with a gyro endorsement. (Really not that hard to get if you put your mind to it)

Can I install a pod?

It’s experimental, you can do whatever you want! However!! Any changes or additions will certainly affect the weight and balance and the aerodynamic flight characteristics which could result in a very dangerous (if not deadly) configuration. The GT-VX-1 is an open format machine, designed to maximize the sensation of flight!

How far can I fly?

If using a Rotax 582, it will burn about 6 gallons per hour. (Thirsty little buggers!) A comfortable cruise speed is about 60 MPH. Full fuel tanks (7.5 Gallons) will then give you a range of 50+ miles with a safe fuel reserve.

This would be a straight-line course to your destination. In reality though, you will be having too much fun, and your flight path will not be a straight line, but rather resembling something closer to a bowl of spaghetti!

Is the GT-VX1 Centerline Thrust?

The thrust-line offset to the Center of mass of the GT-VX1 is just over 1”.

What power plant is used on the GT-VX1?

A 65 HP Rotax 582 is by far the most popular engine used on this aircraft. We also have engine mounts to adapt to a Hirth 3203.

I am humbled that you let me take your baby for a spin.  The only problem I have now is that I want to fly it again! The VX-1 felt very predictable in its flight characteristics. The freedom felt surreal and the solidness of the VX-1 was notable.  The machine was very smooth.  I felt very secure in the seat, more so than in other open frames.  I find myself wishing I could fly her again! - Robert Lutz – Founder – Gyro Revolution (Long Island, NY)
