AutoGyro USA announced that two versions of their Calidus Gyroplane have recently successfully completed flight conformity testing in the USA with the FAA at their Maryland base. These are factory built aircraft and represent the future in terms of turn-key flying and fully assembled flying machines being made available for the first time in the United States.
AutoGyro International Sales Director Andy Wall adds “This represents the culmination of many years of hard work and perseverance by the team here in the USA and back at base in Germany too, we’re getting real close now to factory built aircraft being a reality in the USA.”
“Without the helpful and determined approach from the FAA and in particular the New York ACO, this project would be a none-starter. Special thanks to James Lee and his team for helping to make this dream become reality, Industry and regulator working together to make a real difference.”
