Flying classes are given in one or more of the following aircraft. All students will be taught to use both of either the Cavalon or Eclipse plus the Cougar Gyroplane during their training in order to gain sufficient exposure to rotor management – and will go solo in the Cougar. It’s a very exciting moment when you get to take that first flight on your own!
Cavalon are the world’s largest producer of gyroplanes. The Cavalon gyroplane has redefined the benchmark for contemporary gyro design and raised it even higher. The sleek lines and beauty of what has become arguably the standard by which all two-seat side-by-side gyros will be judged in the future. Featuring unsurpassed comfort and visibility, the Cavalon has fully adjustable seating and controls, a generous luggage area, and 100 litres of fuel capacity giving it a range that makes it a serious touring aircraft.
The 10-Eclipse is a two-seat gyroplane in tandem configuration with an enclosed cockpit. The high attention to detail combined with comfort in an ergonomic interior gives the flight controls a natural feel. The forward-leaning instrument panel is well laid out and lit. The 10-Eclipse is designed for travelling, its high performance and sophisticated interior finish will make your flying dreams come true. Its heated seats and in-cabin heating make it a comfortable experience all year round.
A fantastic training convertible-style gyroplane in tandem configuration. The ‘motorbike of the sky’ is available for hire and to fly by qualified pilots.
The Jabiru J230 is an Australian light-sport aircraft, designed and produced by Jabiru Aircraft in Bundaberg, Qld. It’s a versatile trainer and tourer – an excellent introduction to fixed-wing flight.
The Jabiru 160 is a slightly smaller version of the 230 and a real treat to fly – in fact, you will be trained in both the 230 and 160 when you earn your wings with Rotor-Sport. Its 4-cylinder engine is a little more economical but still has that “airplane” sound we love to hear.
You can continue your flight training with Rotor-Sport Australia, to become a qualified sport pilot, using our gyroplanes and fixed-wing aircraft.
Minimum hours to complete your training is varied and will depend on personal ability. However, the benchmark is approximately 20-30 hours (at $290.00 per hour inc GST).
Once you have completed your entire training, the much-loved ELA 07-Cougar becomes your ticket to hiring and flying a gyroplane, if you decide that buying one is not for you. Our lovely Jabiru 160 will be offered for hire and fly once your training is completed – it truly is a sweet ride.
Whether on your own, with a friend, or your partner, after completing your training you will be able to fly around 95% of Australia outside of controlled airspace.
