Autogyro

Defence / Special Ops

The Autogyro is well suited for Special Ops tasking. 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 Special Forces operations.

Special Operations have their specific need for recce, relay and surveillance. Quite often very expensive and scarce equipment is used to fulfil this need or the need cannot be fulfilled at all. The Commercial of the Shelf (COTS) Autogyro with the proper equipment can fill this need.

The Autogyro can also be a good alternative for some operations with unmanned aircraft. The training/ operation is just as simple and quite often the procurement and operating cost are a fraction of the cost from U(C)AVís. It will only be a matter of time before the first unmanned Autogyro will be introduced.
