Pure craftsmanship – Made in Germany
Every Cavalon is designed to incorporate aesthetics, functionality, and elegance, resulting in a unique and attractive aircraft.

The Cavalon side-by side seated model is probably the best in the world. Stunning to look at and stunning to fly. Smooth, low vibration, fast, comfortable, economical, this is a machine to envy. Yet it is a real workhorse too.

The tough carbon and glass fibre body withstands the rigours of day-to-day work, always ready for action at the turn of a key. Maintenance is easy, with fast removable cowlings, giving quick access to the low maintenance Rotax 915 or 916 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.

And AutoGyro is rightly proud of the safety features. The occupant safety cell protection is a proven and unique concept that works effectively in the real world. Furthermore, the aircraft is equipped with numerous detail systems to ensure safety. Including dual oil pressure warnings, fire warning, dual coolant temp warning, dual fuel warnings, multiple radio fitment, and ADSB. This is where years and years of experience count.

Of course, in todays world, there is always a need for paperwork. Cavalon has full standard airworthiness and numerous local country approvals, setting it apart in the gyroplane world. No matter which generation you choose, rest assured you are purchasing a globally recognized and safe aircraft.

Could that be why the Turkish Jandarma chose AutoGyro as their supplier of Cavalons for their aerial gyroplane fleet?

So, whether you are simply flying for fun, operating a flying school, or looking for a unique package to suit your hobby style – like water operations or fishing, AutoGyro has an aircraft package for you.

Cavalon offers a vast selection of features and options that can be combined, including amphibious floats and night VFR. Contact us to discuss your dreams, and we can design the perfect package to fit.
