MTOsport 2017

Within a few months of the market premiere in 2017, the new MTOsport received the Red Dot Design Award in the product design category.

With more than 18,000 entries yearly from design professionals, companies and organizations from over 70 countries, the Red Dot Design Award is one of the world’s largest and most renowned design competitions.


In 2018, the MTOsport 2017 was honored to receive the renowned German Design Award from the German Design Council, which is commissioned by the German Bundestag (Lower House of the German Parliament) as a foundation in 1953. The foundation is one of the world’s leading competence centers for communication and brand management in the field of design. From a total of around 1,900 high-quality nominations, the best 90 design products are denoted as the award winners.

Pure craftsmanship – Made in Germany
Every MTOsport is crafted with characteristics that combine aesthetics, functionality, and elegance.

The MTOsport 2017 tandem seated model is probably the best in the world. Stunning to look at and stunning to fly. Smooth, low vibration, fast, comfortable, and economical, this is a machine to envy. Yet it is a real workhorse too.

The rugged stainless-steel airframe withstands the rigours of day-to-day work, proven in 20 years of service. Maintenance is easy, with fast removable cowlings, giving quick access to the low-maintenance Rotax 915 or 916 series engines.

The Aluminium rotors, chosen for robustness and reliability (composite rotors tend to suffer in high and low temperatures, and suffer rain erosion), chop through whatever the weather throws at them.

AutoGyro is rightly proud of its safety features. Not only are the occupants well protected by 4 or 5-point harnesses, tested and proven to world-class standards, but also protected by multiple detail safety systems, like dual oil pressure warnings, fire warnings, dual coolant temp warnings, dual fuel warnings, multiple radio fitment, ADSB… This is where the years and years of AutoGyro experience count.

In today’s world, there is always a need for paperwork. The MTOsport 2017 carries many local country approvals and is unique in the gyroplane world in carrying a full standard category of airworthiness. So, whether you buy the standard generation or the certified generation, you know you are buying a safe, proven, and world-recognised aircraft.

This is why the Turkish Jandarma chose AutoGyro as their aircraft supplier for their aerial gyroplane fleet.

So, whether you want to operate an air taxi, a flying school, police missions, surveillance flights, or even specialised fishing flights, AutoGyro has an aircraft package for you.

The MTOsport 2017 is available with a huge range of options and features, many of which can be combined,; such as amphibious floats, nose-mounted cameras and coastguard equipment for coastal patrols.
