In 1931, Amelia Earhart flew a Pitcairn PCA-2 to a women's world altitude record of 18,415 ft (5,613 m).[22]
Wing Commander Ken Wallis has held most of the autogyro world records during his autogyro flying career. These include the speed record of 186 km/h (111.7 mph), and the straight-line distance record of 869.23 km (540.11 mi). On 16 November 2002, at 89 years of age, Wallis increased the 3 km speed record to 207.7 km/h (129.1 mph)[23][24] - and simultaneously set another world record as the oldest pilot to set a world record.
The autogyro is one of the last remaining types of aircraft which has not yet been used to circumnavigate the globe. Expedition Global Eagle was the first attempt in history to circumnavigate the globe using an autogyro.[25] The expedition set the record for the longest flight over water by an autogyro during the segment from Muscat, Oman to Karachi.[26] The attempt was finally abandoned because of bad weather after a trip totalling 7,500 miles (12,100 km).
