Type Certified Gyro!
AutoGyro launches Type Certified Gyroplanes in the USA
EAA Air Venture Oshkosh, WI, July 30, 2016– AutoGyro USA is proud to announce that two versions of our Calidus Gyroplane have recently successfully completed flight conformity testing here in the USA with the FAA at our Maryland base. These are factory built aircraft and represent the future in terms of turn-key flying and fully assembled flying machines being made available for the first time in the United States.
Today, we enter a new world of opportunity taking the Gyroplane into 21st century, just 6 years shy of its 100th anniversary (1923, Juan de La Cierva).
AutoGyro International Sales Director Andy Wall adds “This represents the culmination of many years of hard work and perseverance by the team here in the USA and back at base in Germany too, we’re getting real close now to factory built aircraft being a reality in the USA.”
Praise for the FAA “Without the helpful and determined approach from the FAA and in particular the New York ACO, this project would be a none-starter. Special thanks to James Lee and his team for helping to make this dream become reality, Industry and regulator working together to make a real difference.”
