Hi


Arrowcopter AC20 OE-XAE construction number 025 was cancelled form the Austrian register in November 2013.


Can anybody tell us what has become of this particular machine - maybe exported outside of Austria , maybe damaged ?

All news welcomed.

Hi Leigh - Yes I am wondering if it is "in the process" right now

AC 20 at EDTF......

AC 20 at EDTF......

…and back on 19th of October in Freiburg, Germany.:D

At that weekend there was the official opening of the new hangar of Dynamic Spirit, my local gyro and microlight school. They are operating at least 3-4 MTO Sports, one Calidus and one Cavalon. Microlights are a Breezer B 400, a Comco Ikarus C 42 C and they are adding two more next February: An Aeroprakt A22 L2 and a TL Ultralight 3000 Sirius. ;)

Somewhere at ytube is a video where Jan Harlfinger, the CEO of Dynamic Spirit, is sitting in a volocopter as well. Expect more, haha! Actually they are now licenced and certified service partner of AutoGyro.

Back to topic. Since October they are the one and only representative of Arrowcopter in Germany as well. So my guess is that OE-XAE is already flying with a german registration as demonstrator and school machine. But I have to check that first. May be before Christmas. :)

At that weekend they offered 20 min. flights in their gyros for 48 € and 88 € in the AC 20. Extremely busy, there have never been less than 3 Gyros in the air. :drum:

Here are a few pictures of OE-XAE, enjoy: :rapture:








.......more to come :director:
