What's the status of the Phenix Autogyro? The phenix.aero website no longer exists. I was really hoping this tractor autogyro go into production. Even better, become a kit aircraft for the USA experimental amateur built market. It definitely would sell here in the USA as a kit.!

GyroCFI is correct; the aircraft has not entered production. Development is stuck at 99.999%, With the certification test flight remaining. We've had a tremendous run of bad luck, with personal tragedies and other setbacks. We are trying to move forward and I hope that we will eventually get to a point where something positive happens.

The website is still up at www.phenixgyro.com and the FB page too. But no new news, so no updating.

We are trying and hope to reach a positive point, But it won't be quick.

I hope you are successful at bringing that gyro to market. It really is probably the only gyro I would consider shelling out the money for, really striking design.

I'm trying, hell, I've BEEN trying for the past 9 years! If it was solely up to me, there'd be a hundred of them flying in the US

I cannot help but wonder the status of the Phenix Gyroplane that was originally designed in Spain.



We all know the stability and safety benefits of the tractor configuration. With that in mind, Carlos and his team so eloquently designed one of the most attractive, modern gyroplane to date. I definitely think if the Phenix was offered as a Light Sport compliant EAB kit it would sell very well here in the USA. I certainly would like to own one.

After some search, I found the current website.


Hopefully if enough renewed interest and positive comments about the Phenix are said on this forum it might inspire the current owner/manufacture to push forward with the design.

Very sorry to hear that.

Some of us manage to move forward on projects without too many hiccups, others, not so lucky, as I and other are painfully aware.

Wish you luck on your project.
