AutoGyro Cavalon in Professional Use for Surveying and Cartography
The acceptance procedure and handover of the AutoGyro Cavalon 915 to the representatives of the Czech Office of Surveying and Cartography was successfully completed in June 2023.
This is the result of a multi-year effort to use the AutoGyro gyroplane as a carrier for scanning and digitizing the relief of the earth’s surface. This aircraft met all the conditions of the tender and will carry a professional scanner from Riegel, in cooperation with the German company IGI, and it will be installed and subsequently used professionally by the Geodetic Survey. Our friend at company WEKU Fly from Germany has been using Cavalon gyroplanes and Riegel scanners for more than 5 years for work for the public and private sector in the field of digital surface mapping.
The owner of AGN Systems Pavel Březina together with the Director of the Geodetic Office Mr. Karel Brázdil conducted two days of tests and perfectly checked all flight and ground modes of the gyroplane equipped with the scanner carrier. The Cavalon perfectly met all the specified requirements and after the crews are trained, it will be included and used as a full member of the fleet of scanning aircraft and drones in the Czech Republic.
The handover event is the culmination of this teamwork and confirms the fact that AutoGyro is the only manufacturer in the gyroplane sector that meets all major national regulations, whilst also meeting the highest global safety requirements.
This successful delivery not only highlights AutoGyro’s innovative qualities, it also marks the huge step AutoGyro has taken in the design, configuration and delivery of gyroplane aircraft for commercial and government use.
