Good Morning we would like introduce ourselves, below a couple information about our company, locations, owner and products:

Kris Wronowski participate in the development of the original Xenon associated with Celier Aviation Sp z o o from the beginning. From 2006 he was first exclusive Poland Distributor. After Trendak - Celier split in 2010, He have bean co-owner of Celier Aviation Sp z oo and owner of the Celier Aviation Europe company. Finally 2016 Kris Wronowski have decide to continue by him selves the production of original designed Xenon and other models.
He was take over by the Polish Court decisions all copy rights and productions of Xenon, C44, C22 family. In 2017 he rebranded company (Celier Aviation) to ARGO Aero, as he want separate from bad name of Raphael Celier. Now Manufaktura Lotnicza Sp z o o have full line of gyrocopter production including Composites Division, rotor production ROTOR-TECH, metal parts production, assembly plant and flying school in Poland Sobienie Szlacheckie near to Warsaw capital city.
Manufaktura Lotnicza is located direct on the EPSJ airfield.

All brands own by Kris Wronowski:

About the ARGON the legacy of the XENON:
New 2020 model the ARGON 915 iS is successor of the well known Xenon’s family.
The cabin is a one-piece carbon-fibre monocoque structure, similar to a Formula 1 racing car, both reducing weight and providing additional safety to the crew.
The Argon 915 is professionally supported by numerical dedicated computer system to ensure quality after sales service and maintenance support to our clients, with a on-line EPC (electronic parts catalog) online parts ordering.

Argon 915 is hand made during the 1000 hours production and assembly process by the Manufaktura Lotnicza Kris Wronowski.
The newly-designed exposed carbon composite instrument panel has been created to cater for professional avionics and GPS systems.
The Cabin now offers an even more comfortable, ergonomics and spacious environment than ever before. In conjunction with its high cruising speed (up to 215 km/h IAS) and improved aerodynamics, the new Argon 915 can also be used for long distance travelling with ease, and now includes a dedicated luggage compartment.
The comfortable and ergonomically-shaped ventilated and heated leather and alcantara seats, together with top-quality internal finishing throughout, ensures that your flight is pleasant all the way. Doors have been redesigned in form, size, gasket space and fixation to further increase accessibility, comfort and safety.

While maintaining the original concept, many refinements have been made in the Argon 915 2020 update that, collectively, amount to a startling improvement in overall safety, comfort and performance.
Some of these changes are not immediately apparent, but nevertheless create fundamental improvements to the strength, safety and comfort of the aircraft. The more important changes are summarized as follows:
From 2019 Manufaktura Lotnicza has decided to build completely new sets of molds, resigning from the 10-year old ones used so far during subcontracting of MBL. From 2020 all aircraft is builded in Manufaktura home at EPSJ airfield. Each of composites part has been redesigned and structurally tested, new certified resins and carbon fabrics have been used.
The new main cabin mold has been redesigned to provide the engine and other components with much better cooling, the sides NACA are almost twice bigger.
Air ducts for blowing air into the cabin have been implemented in the structure of the cabin safety cage.
Air intakes for water coolers have been significantly enlarged. The fuel, oil and electric systems have been completely redesigned using all high tech aviation components AN standard.
The rear firewall has been structurally rebuilt and reinforced, on which is placed a completely new frame for the powerful 915 is engine.
Landing gear pockets have been structurally rebuilt and reinforced.
The engine housing has been completely changed to adapt it to the ROTAX 915 iS
We used new, top-quality interior trim materials and beautiful colorful paints from the McLaren and Lamborghini palettes
Shadow Line - all metal parts are black anodized
Carbon Look - exposed carbon on the airframe and interior for sportive look and user comfort.
Two new, powerful engines - ROTAX 915 iS 141 HP and Edge Performance STi 155 HP
The previous models design did not have a monolithic mast "pocket". This is now the case, dramatically improving mast support in this area.
The central tunnel, that provides a structural ‘spine’ to the cabin, was previously glued. Now it is fully integrated into the monolithic construction, greatly adding to the strength.
A small lip, protruding in the front, has been created to add strength in this highly-stressed zone. The lip permits the installation of a metallic plate, a cover only, which is not structural.
The undercarriage main wheels have been moved 5 cm rearwards to improve take-off performance. The shift increases the load on the front wheel of the gyro, contributing indirectly to an increase in the load on the rotor in the initial phase of the take-off. Thus the rotor spins up more quickly, reducing the take-off length.
The Argon 915 has bigger rear windows behind the doors. This increases visibility, improving safety.
Additional NACA air ducts have been inserted in the upper engine cowling to integrate cooling airflow to the top of the 915 iS engine.
All our molds have been indexed with reference points for all fastenings to improve assembly accuracy and repeatability to provide a higher level of quality control in the production.
The doors have been redesigned with their hinges on the forward leading edge, with a revised door lock and security backup, providing additional safety in the event of accidental opening in flight.
The instrument panel has been redesigned to accommodate the latest avionics and GPS systems and now together with all interior panels was made by pure carbon composites.
The inner headliner structure has been tripled in width to dramatically increase the forward / backward strength of the cabin. This greatly improves support to sustain the mast traction and vibrations that can otherwise fatigue the frontal structure of the cabin, potentially leading to cracks in the windshield. The new structure also strongly reinforces the roof of the cabin, so that now it is possible to stand on the roof when working on the rotors.
We have changed the nose shape to introduce dual “eye” shaped high-power LED landing lights to increase the nose tip point strength and to provide improved operation in low light.
The newest future is Carbon Composites rotor with conical angle rotor hub improved smooth flight without vibration.
The dynamic intake will improve temperature of AirBox for having best engine power
Hot air deflector protecting fire wall from exhaust
McLaren sportive seats exposed carbon design
Strap brakes are reinvented for easy use
VP propeller with Single Lever Control

Lovely machines, has the nicest cabin and despite it sise these things fly well.

IMO a better gyro for commercial part 96 ops than Cavalon, the new interior also has more space for Flir or other pc driven goodies making it a stromg contender for observation Platforms. The view through the feet is a real treat and until you have flown with a gyro that offers this feature you will not appreciate it.

i wish this company well and look forward to seeing this Argo915 in SA.
