The ingenious dwarven engineers, taking a nod from their inventive gnomish cousins, constructed the ultimate airborne scout vehicle. The gyrocopters are small but versatile flying machines that can cover great distances at speed and evade enemy ground forces. Though the contraptions are somewhat rickety, they are armed with mounted cannons and bombs, and piloted by the daring – if not insane – dwarven pilot corps.

They are often carried by Alliance gunships, such as the Skyseeker and the Skyfire. These squadrons can then be deployed independently, as with what happened in the Strongarm Airstrip. Naval carriers can also transport full squadrons of gyrocopters and bombers.

- In Warcraft III, gyrocopters and flying machines were different. The former had both a rotor system and engines on the sides. They were then upgraded into flying machines during The Frozen Throne. Nowadays the two terms are interchangeable. See Gyrocopter (Warcraft III) and Flying Machine (Warcraft III).
