Aero Friedrichshafen: AutoGyro exhibits the $95,000 Cavalon gyrocopter
After the FlyNano single-seat fun flyer, we have AutoGyro’s Cavalon gyrocopter from the Aero Friedrichshafen air show held in Germany (April 13-16). The side-by-side, fully enclosed Cavalon gyrocopter presents its pilot and passenger with an unrivaled dimension and comfort. Invented by the Spanish engineer Juan de la Cierva in 1923, a gyrocopter is quite stable at low speeds, and it doesn’t need much space for the take-off and landing. The AutoGyro’s Cavalon gyrocopter has already been certified in Germany and France, with other countries to follow.
The Cavalon is great for long distances, thanks to its big tank volume. During the flight, it promises the perfect position to the passenger with its individually adjustable seats and pedals. AutoGyro’s Cavalon gyrocopter will set you back EUR 65,000 (about $95,100), and only 10 units are left in this year’s production run.
