Broad Tilt-Open Canopy
Carbon Fiber Propeller
Pneumatically operated trim & prerotator drive
High Visibility Tandem Seating
The AutoGyro Calidus shares many of the features that make the Cavalon the premier choice for gyroplane enthusiasts—its seamless composite body, aluminum rotor system and pneumatically operated trim & prerotator drive, to name a few—in a tandem seating format that provides unmatched visibility in style and comfort. For the first time in decades, the FAA has issued a type certification for a gyroplane, so those who don't want to build a Calidus from a kit have the option of a factory built version.
All kit-built gyroplanes built in the United States require an Airworthiness Inspection, Transponder Certification, and Phase 1 Fly-Off in the designated area, all of which Cierva.Aero can facilitate.
