Gyroplane crashes at convention being held at Mentone Airport

(Carli Luca / News Now Warsaw)

One person has been taken to the hospital following a gyroplane crash at the Mentone Airport.

Popular Rotocraft Association convention is going on at the Mentone Airport through August 5, and one of the attendees was piloting a gyroplane that rolled over and crashed around 10 a.m. Thursday.

Smaller than a helicopter but similar in appearance, gyroplanes or “autogyros” are aircrafts that generate rotation in a different way.

The pilot was transported to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
