Classic Aero-TV: An Autogyro Milestone – Autogyro USA’s Certified Rotorcraft

From 2017 (YouTube Version): Takes Advantage Of A New Category Of Aircraft Established By The FAA…

Gyroplanes are among the most misunderstood aircraft, but the recent certification of the factory-built AutoGyro Calidus as a primary category aircraft has gone a long way towards making the public more aware of what the aircraft are, and their capabilities.

That is the assessment of Andy Wall, CEO of Autogyro USA, who told ANN's Tom Patton at the Sebring Sport Aviation Expo in January that the company has been inundated with inquires since the certification was granted in December of last year.

Wall said that one of the major hurdles was getting the FAA to recognize the gyroplane as a category of aircraft, and that the agency was very helpful in that process. He said that the primary issue was that there wasn't a standard to which the aircraft could be approved. The standard which came out of the process is an "all-encompassing standard" assuring that the aircraft is built to high standards.

The certification is helping gyroplanes in general gain acceptance in the sport aviation market, Wall said, adding that the company has plans to certify its other models as well.
