Some people love to paint or cook in their spare time; while others, like George “Gyro Jake” Jacob, get a kick out of building their own homemade aircrafts.

More specifically, Jacob designs, builds and flies “gyroplanes”—part-helicopter, part-airplane, DIY flying machines with an ever-growing following.
