Cavalon

The dawn of a new era.

Great space, great view, great fun.

Unique perfection, outstanding design and great love of detail.

The first side-by-side gyroplane of AutoGyro is a real masterpiece in design, technique and innovation and overcomes all restrictions and limits. Seated side by side it presents its pilot and passenger an uncomparable dimension and comfort.

As a side-by-side model, the Cavalon expands the product range of AutoGyro and offers a huge variety of features. Due to its big 100 l fuel tank the Cavalon handles great distances easily and always offers everyone the perfect position thanks to its individually adjustable seats and pedals. From the bottom to the top every wish is fulfilled: also the interior offers much room for pilot and passengers and shows a highly structured overview with outstanding design.

The very special, sophisticated and innovative product design of the Cavalon has been decorated with the internationally recognized reddot award: product design in 2012, as well as the international premium prize, the German Design Award: Transportation and Public Space in 2014. The Cavalon became the world’s first modern-era certified gyroplane when it received the Certificate of Airworthiness for the first-of-type (G-CIEW) from the UK Civil Aviation Authority at AERO Friedrichshafen in April 2015.

220 Calidus have been produced to date.
