Between April 2020 to February 2022 AutoGyro and Southwest CAAC (Civil Aviation Administration of China) carried out an almost two-year documentation audit to enable the release of the Cavalon Type Certificate. This long journey started in 2015 when the documents were originally compiled. With the joint efforts of both teams and support from the Airworthiness Certification Department of CAAC, AutoGyro gratefully received the Cavalon Type Certification in China in October 2022. Cavalon Night VFR and three-axis Autopilot operations were approved at the same time.
Cavalon is the first aircraft equipped with Rotax 915iS engine to receive airworthiness approval in China. The Type Certification of Cavalon marks the official entry of this model into the Chinese market, at the same time a significant milestone for the AutoGyro company.
AutoGyro is very proud that all AutoGyro models, MTOsport 2010, MTOsport 2017, Calidus, and Cavalon, have received airworthiness approval certified by the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC). AutoGyro is the only brand in the Chinese gyroplane market that has received airworthiness approvals from CAAC (China), FAA (the USA), CAA (the UK), and DULV (Germany).
