MTOsport Pro

Introducing the MTOsport Pro version of the AutoGyro MTOsport aircraft, compliant with UK Civil Aviation Authority requirements for a UK Standard Category Certificate of Airworthiness. This ICAO-compliant certificate is recognised across the globe, and AutoGyro is the only company in the world with this level of gyroplane certification.

This certification permits the aircraft to conduct any approved and equipped paid aerial work. It is valid, especially in Europe, where a Certificate of Airworthiness is necessary. Examples of such work include air taxi, carriage of goods, surveying, police and fire service duties, and much more.

The MTOsport Pro aircraft are equipped with a certified Rotax 915 or 916 iSc engine and a constant-speed Woodcomp propeller, ensuring optimal safety and reliability. These aircraft can be supplied either with a UK registration and Airworthiness Certificate, ready to fly under a UK PPL or CPL licence, or with a Statement of Aircraft Conformity for local country acceptance.

Certification includes day and night VFR, and IFR capability.

Most countries, where legislation permits, would recognise and verify the aircraft certification via their systems and award their equivalent. In cases where that is not practical and subject to local aviation legal limitations, the aircraft can undertake aerial work under a UK registration.

This certification is equivalent to any other certificated aircraft, such as a Cessna or Airbus, ensuring the highest level of safety and compliance for professional use. So, if you’re looking for a reliable and compliant gyroplane for your professional needs, look no further than the MTOsport Pro. Order yours today and experience the ultimate in professional gyroplane aviation.

MTOclassic

The ubiquitous MTOsport has been the mainstay of the AutoGyro fleet since production started in 2003. Now renamed the MTOclassic to differentiate it from the later 2017 model, demand for this much-loved machine remains very strong around the world – even after some 20 years of production.

The MTOsport tandem seat gyroplane is probably the best known in the world. With thousands in service, most gyroplane flight schools either own one, operate one, or used them at some point in their existence. Not only are these aircraft great looking, reliable, and easy to maintain, but most importantly they are amazing fun to fly!

Can you imagine the enjoyment to be had when flying in the elements, high in the air? Here is your chariot to take you there.

The rugged stainless-steel airframe withstands the rigours of years of service, and because no paint is needed, incredibly easy to inspect even after thousands of hours and decades of years in service. Maintenance of MTOclassics is easy, with no cowlings to remove, and easy-service Rotax 912 or 914 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.

Robustness and reliability are key features of the MTOclassic. AutoGyro is rightly proud of its safety features. The MTOsport 2017 provides excellent protection with well-tested safety harnesses and multiple safety systems. This is where the years and years of AutoGyro’s experience count.

In today’s world where regulations are critical, there is inevitably a need for paperwork. The MTOclassic has multiple local country approvals across the world, as factory built and kit-built aircraft. Irrespective of paperwork, the AutoGyro MTOclassic is an established and internationally acknowledged safe aircraft.

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

Whether you are flying for leisure or have a specific purpose in mind, such as running a flying school, or simply flying for fun, AutoGyro offers a wide range of aircraft packages tailored to meet your needs.
