CFI Completes Calidus Conversion

Now that Calidus has arrived in Australia the serious business of type conversion has started with our CFI Paul Mitchell having conpleted his.

Paul made  very positive coments on the speed and stability of Calidus.

Paul is also an experienced fixed wing pilot and considers Calidus as a serious cross country/touring alternative to many of the fixed wing aircraft available.

Paul said that “Calidus is certainly not above the average pilot and the claimed cruise figures are certainly correct”. Paul went on to say (when he could stop smiling!) “It is definitely not a development of the MTO Sport, it has its own characteristics in that it is very smooth because of the flexi mast and very stable. This gyro will change the way many people percieve gyro aircraft and it won’t be long before we see a number of them in the air”.

Paul is pictured here with our Calidus demonstrator which features the much talked about Summer canopy option.

Auto Gyro Australia has one Calidus available for delivery immediately and at this stage it will be in the new year when we will have delivery of further aircraft.
