The benefits of an AutoGyro over fixed-wing aircrafts are:
Impossible to stall, impossible to spin
Easy ground-handling
Comfortable, ergonomic seats
Very short takeoff distances (10 to 70m)
Road transportable
Large operational speed range
Practically no landing distance necessary
Tiny hangar footprint
Purchase and operational costs about 10%
Extremely slow-speed flight possible
Minimum preflight preparation
Relatively unaffected by turbulence and windy
