TERCEL, or old English Tiercel, is according to dictionary reference "the male of a hawk, especially of a gyrfalcon or peregrine".
There are so many Falcons and Hawks on the market, that we decided this traditional name TERCEL, used in falconry, should be appropriate for our new machine.
Gyrfalcon is not a gyroplane-falcon, as you might expect, but the name of the biggest bird of the falcon species.
Our TERCEL is also the biggest bird of the the side by side gyroplane class, with the cabin width greater than Cessna 172, so it fits well the name.
Pregrine, the peregrinating, or travelling falcon is known for covering great distances with exceptional speed.
Our TERCEL is also a great traveller, fast and comfortable on long tours, so, again, it fits well the name.
On more technical note, the TERCEL is a result of many years of experience and recent development work and testing, featuring many innovative, new solutions.
Completely new composite gear with long travel, structural mast with vibration dampeners, push-pull cable rotor control guarantee smooth ride on take off and landing, and vibration free flight.
The standard equipment includes such new features like sliding seats, electric pitch and roll trim, 120 l fuel tank, variable pitch propeller and many more.

As mentioned before the TERCEL is undergoing the process of certification in cooperation with DULV, the German Ultralight Association. It is being tested for MTOW of 560kg, in accordance with German BUT and UK BCAR-T, which ever is stricter in a particular aspect. The Trendak Tercel already passed successfully all of the hang tests, drop tests and static stress tests.
The test are run under the supervision of Mr. Joerg Seewald, DULV Member of the Board, Technical Director, Rotorcraft.
The temporary technical date and performance figures can be found here:
The performance data published under the above link are rather conservative, based on theoretical calculations. We refrain from publishing exact performance data before the final tests are completed and results confirmed by independent experts.
The Trendak TERCEL is available in the US in kit form. The first machine has been registered last week.

At the moment we would like to present just several graphic design suggestions for the Tercel (enclosed). You will have to be little patient to see the actual photos.
