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.
