AutoGyro Calidus is now fully released to the French market at an increased maximum take-off weight

With the strong support from our AutoGyro French Partner Fly Aero, one more AutoGyro model is fully approved and released to the French market. The AutoGyro Calidus has now been approved to the French ultralight aircraft standard with an MTOW (maximal take-off weight) of 500kg and is available to French customers with immediate effect.

Calidus is our tandem seated gyroplane model with a closed cabin. Since the market release in 2009, Calidus is particularly favoured by flight schools, tourism, and law enforcement agencies. Thanks to the built-in cabin heater and adjustable seat position, this gyroplane model offers an excellent combination of cabin comfort and a unique flying experience. This configuration provides the passenger in the rear seat an indoor lounge environment without losing the panorama view in the air.

Fly Aero has been partnered with AutoGyro since 2005. They are fully authorized as a distribution and maintenance partner of AutoGyro. Apart from the updated Calidus, the AutoGyro models of Cavalon, MTOclassic and MTOsport 2017 are also available for French customers.

Cavalon celebrates its production anniversary: 10 years 500 Cavalon – A new milestone of AutoGyro

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.
