The Cavalon N696BS sails away to the USA on September 9, 2021. This means that AutoGyro has dispatched Cavalon serial number 500!
The Cavalon is the first and only model from AutoGyro with side-by-side seats, which provides both occupants a great outside view and the ability to see each other face to face for a true joint piloting experience. Since its introduction on the international markets in 2011, it has been the world market favorite for social side-by-side flying. Immediately after the aircraft was launched, Cavalon received the Red Dot Design Award and was honored to be exhibited in the Red Dot Museum in Essen, Germany. Within two years AutoGyro had delivered 100 versions of the aircraft. And in 2014, AutoGyro designed, assembled and test flew the first-ever e-Cavalon, equipped with an electric engine from Bosch.
Several versions of Cavalon exist with different engine and propeller combinations. Some of them are dedicated to serving the commercial world. The new Cavalon Sentinel follows this lead. Equipped with the UKRSPECSYSTEMS day and infrared camera, autopilot, and many other extras, this configuration is carefully targeted for roles in Law Enforcement, Search and Rescue, and Fire patrols and monitoring.
“We are immensely proud that the AutoGyro team in Hildesheim has another milestone to record. More than 3000 gyroplanes created by AutoGyro are now in service in our global market. Our passion and commitment to both the ultralight and professional gyroplane market, and to our global customers, will never stop.” said Co-CEO of AutoGyro GmbH Gerry Speich.
