The history of rotorcraft began with the gyroplane on January 9th, 1923. On that day, the inventor of the gyroplane, Juan de la Cierva, flew his „auto gyro“ for the first time, impressing the Spanish military. To power the rotor by autorotation (unlike the helicopter’s use of active rotation), was his invention and proved to be a revolution in aviation.
Flying gyro – The finest form of mobility
Like the early versions, the engine of today‘s gyros moves only the propeller and thus serves only as the drive of the aircraft. The rotor uses the air stream to set itself into rotation, and it is this auto rotation that generates the buoyancy of the gyroplane. In the event of an engine failure the gyro would lose altitude slowly and still be able to perform a controlled landing. The centrifugal effect of the rotor gives the gyroplane a very smooth and stable ride in flight while minimizing the effect of turbulence. Like no other rotorcraft, the gyro can be flown in strong winds and weather conditions and can practically be used year-round.
World of Professional Application
Transporting important medicine to faraway regions, or giving Doctors without Borders a quick lift to their patients – this is already possible with AutoGyro. Quickly, keen and flexible – we realize your projects!
AutoGyros are your ideal partner for any surveillance mission. This is why our models do already fly for Police departments of the cities Tomball and Somerset in the U.S.A.. But also in France, the SNCF counts on our Cavalon for patrolling thousands of kilometers of their railway tracks. The possiblities are farreaching, whereas the costs are minimal. We are able to operate 90% of all helicopter missions at 10% of the costs. What can we do for you?
Provided with our special equipment, our MTOagric is the ideal partner in any agricultural assignment:
- 120 L Tank for crop spraying
- 9 m spraying arms (foldable)
- GPS controlled
