Autogyro

Commercial / Pipeline Control

The Autogyro is well suited for Pipeline or Powerline Control. Its long endurance and ability to fly low and slow, its safety profile and easy handling characteristics combined with the low investment and operating costs and its low CO2 and noise footprint make it a perfect aircraft for various Pipeline or Powerline Control operations.

Pipeline control or powerline inspections with the Autogyro is so obvious that the questions is why itīs not done on a larger scale already. Now helicopters are used but there is no requirement to hover during this task. The slow speed capability and maneuverability of the autogyro in combination with the unobstructed view are more than sufficient. The endurance of the Autogyro can be 5 hours, that is significantly more than most helicopters. The much cheaper operating costs and the ability to install an external camera system make the Autogyro the perfect aircraft for the job.
