The Autogyro Cavalon is a German-built autogyro, designed and produced by AutoGyro GmbH of Hildesheim. In 2012 it won a prestigious red dot design award for outstanding product design.

Called the Cavalon, the new model is AutoGyro's first aircraft with side-by-side seating. The aerodynamic bodywork hides an interior which is spacious, well equipped and nicely trimmed. In addition the large windows have been designed to provide both the pilot and passenger with outstanding views to the front and sides.

The AutoGyro Cavalon's cockpit can be configured in a variety of ways to suit the individual buyers needs and budget. That means the dash can come with just the bare essentials, or it can incorporate the latest GPS systems and flat-screen monitors.

Due to its large tank volume the aircraft offers up to 5 hours of flight time. And with a top speed of 112 mph (180 km/h) and a cruising speed of 90 mph (145 km/h) that means it can cover a considerable distance for such a versatile aircraft. The aircraft, fitted with optional floats, also has the ability to take-off and land on water.

The Cavalon is offered with two engine choices, a Rotax 912 ULS which provides 100 horsepower, or a Rotax 914 ULS with 115 horsepower.

And just in case you're not familiar with autogyros, they are a type of aircraft that's similar to a helicopter, but different in a number of ways. They are more stable at low speeds, and can takes off and land without using a large area, they are also cheaper to run but aren't capable of hovering for long periods.
