New AutoGyro Partner in Switzerland

We are pleased to announce the partnership with Pascal Balet, as our new Swiss Sales Partner and associated Flight School operating from BEX (LSBG) in the Canton of Vaud.

As our representative for the Swiss market, he will offer the AutoGyro Cavalon 915 iS, MTOsport 915 iS and Calidus 914 UL models together with gyro flight instruction. Pascal is not only a very experienced gyroplane and helicopter pilot, but also a Swiss and French ULM instructor having already trained many gyroplane students. Both, Pascal and AutoGyro, are looking forward to spreading the passion of high-performance gyroplane flying in Switzerland.

When signing the contract at AutoGyro’s facilities in Hildesheim, our new AutoGyro Partner was accompanied by a Swiss instructor colleague and an interested customer. All of them had experience with gyroplanes of other manufacturers and were extremely impressed by the AutoGyro factory tour and gyro flights: “The high manufacturing and product quality is really a different level from everything we have seen and flown so far in the ultralight market! By choosing AutoGyro and Cavalon flying, our customers have the opportunity to experience a very high level of comfort – even with autopilot. Also, the speed and the climb rate of AutoGyro flying is a special feeling.“ stated Pascal Balet.

Thank you, Pascal. We really appreciate your positive feedback. Welcome to the AutoGyro Partner Family.

Test flight report: Autopilot in AutoGyro’s Cavalon with state-of-the-art avionics

Learn about the experience of flying a gyroplane equipped with autopilot, radio navigation and dual screen Garmin G3X touch avionics. Our Czech partner Pavel Březina reports…

In May 2023 Pavel Březina, Managing director of our czech partner AGN systems s.r.o., had the chance to test our high-spec Cavalon with autopilot both solo, and together with numerous pilots. They absolutely “enjoyed the difference” and all pilots were thoroughly convinced: “A real mature aircraft that combines FUN with SAFETY”.

We thank Pavel for sharing with us your experience, enthusiasm and trip report from flying in the Czech Republic and back to Germany:

“Gerry Speich, CEO of AutoGyro GmbH, visited us in Přerov last weekend. We are planning to work together with our version of Calidus with the Rotax 915 and Rotax 916 engines. (Ed; Maybe there is surprise coming..) 

Gerry flew in a Cavalon equipped with a Garmin GMC 507 autopilot. This is the first gyroplane ever to have a fully approved autopilot installation. Combined with a Garmin G3X glass cockpit I had the opportunity to test it for a few days. 

After thoroughly studying it on YouTube and elsewhere, I visited a few more experienced pilots, enticed them into the gyro and had them advise me on some procedures. I also gave a few of our gyro pilots a ride in rainy conditions over the weekend. We all agreed that the Cavalon, equipped like this, has become a mature vehicle and flying it is fun, but most importantly, safe. 

Also this week I flew to Hildesheim, where AutoGyro is based, and configured and ordered a Cavalon with a new Rotax 916 engine and equipped with advanced avionics and a Garmin autopilot. 

So you can look forward to a demo machine and soon you will be able to try this Cavalon with us.  Since the demonstration Cavalon was registered in England, my English pilot’s license finally came in handy too.”

Back in the air again – FAA recommences issue of AutoGyro primary category type certificates

We want to offer our congratulations to the AutoGyro USA team, their patient owners, and the AutoGyro Certification Team for their success in appealing the imposition of helicopter fuel system safety requirements in gyroplanes.

We are all grateful for the careful consideration and understanding of the different operational characteristics given within the FAA, leveraging the new AIR Issue Resolution and Appeal Process. All aircraft that were temporarily grounded have been released into service without any modifications required.  The entire AutoGyro team is thrilled to be back in full production. As the only provider of factory built, Primary Category type-certificated gyroplanes in the entire United States. We would like to thank everyone in the AutoGyro community for their support as we navigated this lengthy challenge.  We are grateful to the FAA for their communication and consideration throughout the appeal process. And are excited to focus on what we do best, designing and building safe beautiful gyroplanes.
Enjoy the Difference!
