ABOUT SKYWORKS

Skyworks is the world leader in the science and technology of gyronautics, focusing on the design and development of high performance gyroplanes. Using highly advanced technology and modern aerospace science, engineering, and design methods, we strive to make air travel safer, more cost efficient and effective.

Skyworks has been developing manned and unmanned vertical lift gyroplane technologies for more than two decades. These advanced sustained autorotative flight technologies enable aircraft to be both runway independent and economical, and yet remain unconstrained by the physics imposed speed, range, and payload limitations of a helicopter. After 25 years of research and development and more than 40 patents issued and more under application, Skyworks is the undisputed global leader in gyronautics — the science of safety, simplicity, and sustainability applied practically to change the way people and goods move about the globe.

GYRONAUTICS

The core of Skyworks’ Gyroplane and Gyrodyne technology is Skyworks’ unparalleled understanding of sustained autorotative flight. Autorotation is the ability of a free-spinning rotor to generate lift.
 
For a Gyroplane in forward flight, as shown in the diagram to the right, the unpowered rotor creates lift through autorotation, with forward thrust provided by an engine-driven propeller(s) or by jet engine(s), much like an airplane. Larger and/or faster Skyworks Gyroplanes have airplane wings.
