About our logo. The intention of our logo is to remember our roots. The gyroplane is a vintage aircraft from the early days of rotorcraft development, honoring those who laid the foundation of our sport. The nose art pin-up girl in the logo is to honor those individuals who kept the gyroplane in existance following World War II. It was the effort of these people that the modern sport gyroplane was developed. Nose art was commonly found on World War II aircraft and this art was usually painted by the ground crew. A good reminder that without the untiring efforts of the maintenance and support personnel, the pilots beautiful girl (the aircraft) doesn't fly. It is hoped that by remembering the commitment, effort and passion of those before us will live on in your own gyroplane passion and further develop and research this incredible aircraft. Take pride in your symbol for it is a symbol of the courageous adventurer.
