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.[2]

During the events of The Frozen Throne, dwarves replaced their gyrocopters with upgraded flying machines.

There exists gyrocopters of both gnomish and goblin origins. The dwarves of the Ironforge Brigade wanted to deploy gyrocopters for the opening of the Gates of Ahn'Qiraj.[3]

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.[4] Naval carriers can also transport full squadrons of gyrocopters and bombers.
