Perhaps these are posted elsewhere, but I don't remember seeing them. The Aviomania has morphed into an even sexier design in my opinion. The front cowling is larger, which is my only complaint with the older version I have. Also there is a solid floor under the pilot and a semi cowling around the rear seat.

the specs of the gyro in the picture are:


Max level speed …………………………………………………………… 92 Knots (105 Mph / 170Kmph)
Cruize speed at MTOW at 4900 -5000 RPM………………………… 65 Knots (75 Mph / 120Kmph) (+5 kt solo)
Min level speed (MTOW)…………………………………………………………… 25 Kt (30Mph / 45 Kmph)
Max Endurance ……………………………………………………………………………… 4.5 Hours
Max rate of climb …………………………………………………………………… 1300 fpm
Takeoff Distance (MTOW no wind)...........………………………………………… 120m (ft.
Landing Distance ……………………………………………………………………… 10 ft.
Empty weight (with no fuel) ………………………………………… 530 lbs (240 Kg)
Useful Load (MAX) …………………………........................…………… 700 lbs (320 Kg)
Rotor diameter …………………………………………………………………………… 28 ft.
Propeller Diameter ………………………………………………………………… 72” (1.8m)
Fuel Capacity ……………………………………………………………………………… 65 L (17.5 US Gal
Engine …………………………………………………………………… Rotax 912 ULS (100 HP)

the weight includes ALL options AND the oil and coolant. oil and water coolers on that gyroplane are brass.... we can shave off another 2-4 Kg (3-9 lbs) using lighter accessories.

i have flown passengers of 110Kg (240 lbs) from our short runway of 250m (~800 ft)

My neighbor just finished putting together the latest MTO sport. It weighed in at 601 pounds. A 70 pound weight savings would likely make the 100 hp a serviceable engine. I have seen multiple two place European style machines take off and land on my grass strip and the climb-out with two passengers was marginal at best, which is why I felt I had to look for 130HP. But shaving off 70 pounds is like adding hp, and I suspect I could have made that work. JAL my Honda engine is finally giving me the performance I had hoped for and my confidence is back...although I still try not to fly over something I can't land on.

Looks like a sweet ride, Joe. Your own private Grass strip? Even better. With neighbors who like to fly as well, maybe they help out with the mowing and such, heh heh. Any info on the Avio's range and fuel usage?
