Narrative:
The gyroplane crash under unknown circumstances during takeoff. Both occupants sustained minor injuries.

Thé vice-president of the flying club testifies: "He is a pilot of the club who left with a passenger. On takeoff, he put too much throttle on. The weather was very nice, there was no wind, he stalled while reducing, then went straight down. The rotor hit the ground, so the aircraft lay on its side.
This is an experienced person, it happens a few times, but it's very rare. This aircraft is not dangerous."
