This Gyrox autogyro which is flying around the world has an open cockpit and is quite a different animal to either a fixed wing aircraft or a helicopter. It is a very novel and challenging way to travel. A major issue for the record attempt circumnavigation of the globe by pilot Norman Surplus is safety. As a result he pilot has carried out extensive research and worked closely with the aircraft and technical support team to achieve optimum safety. One of the results was the design and manufactured of a unique survival suite by a leading Finish company which specialises in this area. The long open water stretches most notably crossing the North Atlantic.
