The Whiptail Gyrocopter is a small aircraft in Just Cause (1).


It's a small, one-seat helicopter, with no weapons or armour. Despite these short-comings, it is relatively fast and nimble. This, together with its small size, makes it ideal for navigating cities and towns.

It should be noted that this vehicle's design is that of an autogyro. However, autogyros do not provide power to the top propeller; they require a rear propeller for forward motion, and their top propeller requires forward motion to provide lift. Without the rear propeller, this design is at best a rotor kite, which is not capable of independent flight at all. Alternatively, if the top propeller were powered, and its shape were capable of sustaining flight it would still be a helicopter without a rear rotor, and would begin to spin in the opposite direction of the rotors until they both reached an equal amount of torque.


  • During the mission Guadalicano Choo Choo, after the destruction of the train, Otto Kleiner escapes in a unique light gray Gyrocopter and must be shot down. This is the only sighting of the Gyrocopter, other than your own. This is also the only one with markings.
  • After the mission Guadalicano Choo Choo, it becomes available for Heavy drop, in the PDA.
    • In some of the PC and Xbox 360 versions game, it does not become available until after the next mission, Some Enchanted Evening.
