Here is a link to above to learn more....Of the ABS (Xenon gen 1) machines only 1 was in the US and it is not still flying. Not sure about the others sold in France but the Hirth engine had many failures.
I was the initial US importer for the second generation Xenons made in the AAT factory in Poland in 2007-2008. The 10 gyros I imported are registered E-LSA and the only gyros registered that way. Others were later brought in as Experimental and these are mostly Generation 3 Zen/Tercels. After the split between Artur Trendak and Raphael Celier CA moved around 3-4 times but each time his partners kicked him out as Artur Trendak had. Raphael Celier ripped off people in about 5 different countries and never provided support for most of stuff he sold. Steer clear of him
AAT has not had very consistent US representation. I was the first US rep and sold 10 gyros in less than a year, followed by Mike Bantum for 3-4 years even though he only sold 1-2 gyros. Chris Lord repped both AAT and Celier for a time. The AAT factory is good but it would be far better if you could work with a US rep for parts and service etc.
I don't know anything about the Argo.
Which partner are you contracting with? Arthur or Celler?Fly Argo have secured a client in SA, a well respected Cessna and beach agent who is considering adding gyro to their product offering.
I was approached to take care of flight training and to assist in drawing up a robust marketing plan to bring the gyro into the commercial segment that is under traded here.
In dealing with FA now for a few months they have informed me that they have the full manufacturing rights to the CA range as well as the Sanke light helicopter, I will be going to Poland to flight test the aircraft before it comes out here, currently we are frustrated getting it designated within our CAA
Here are pics of the unit that has been ordered by Absolute Aviation
Thank you, that is encouraging news. Let's hope their warranty and after sale support is much better than the other two companies.Fly Argo have purchased the rights to the CA blueprints and plans they have nothing to do with the old regime from what I understand they are a new player hoping to make a success
