The Gyrocopter from Rotorvox
We bring together more than five years of development and flight testing with our gyrocopter. Created from scratch with innovative methods of development and manufacturing of the automotive motor sport, it not only sets standards in aerodynamics, materials and comfort.
For flying this kind of aircraft, you need a sport pilot licence for gyrocopters.
You can complete the pilot training normally within 9 months.
Take-off & Landing
In Germany alone, there are about 700 airfields for your take-off and landing.
The Rotorvox operates with conventional premium grade gasoline.
What is a Gyrocopter?
A Gyrocopter – also known as an autogyro – is an aircraft that optically resembles a helicopter. Contrary to a helicopter, a gyrocopter also features a propeller that provides forward thrust. And unlike a helicopter, the gyrocopter‘s rotor is not engine-powered during flight, but merely passively powered by airstream that results from the forward propulsion. This is the so-called autorotation. Because of their lightweight and compact construction, gyrocopters are classified as Ultralight Aircrafts, which leads to considerable cost advantages of flight operations and also with regard to obtaining a flight license.
What makes Rotorvox gyrocopters unique?
With our gyrocopters we want to combine the simplicity of flying with a first-class product. Even at first sight, our gyrocopter shows with its size and design not to be standard – as well as our clients. Therefore, our concept consists of different components for creating an extraordinary aircraft – just for you.
The generous dimensions allow for a spacious cockpit, easily accommodating two passengers seated next to each other.
Impressive All-Round Visibility
Window panes with 3,6m2, a freestanding cockpit and ergonomic tests allow for an impressive panoramic view.
Light Full Carbon Fiber Cabin
An extremely sturdy and lightweight cabin, manufactured from carbon fiber, provides passengers with safety standards comparable to those of a F1 race car.
We put great value on the usage of select materials and a great workmanship.
Our gyrocopter combines a modern design language with an high user-friendliness.
Outstanding Flight Characteristics
The excellent aerodynamics and the high inherent stability during flight of the Rotorvox ensure high comfort and a relaxed trip.
Specifications & Equipment
The Rotorvox C2A is designed and manufac- tured to the highest quality standards. It is available as a ready to fly factory built model and as an Experimental Amateur Built kit for the US market.
