​Course

 


The Calidus is one of the new generation of aircraft in the UK, BCAR Section-T compliant, factory built in Germany and final assembly in the UK at Rotorsport UK Ltd's CAA approved workshops. Gyrocopters have come a long way since Little Nellie in the James Bond film You Only Live Twice and are now practical, safe and serious fun to fly machines.

The gyroplane complements our other flying activities. In many ways the aircraft is very similar to our present microlights. Same Rotax engine, same maximum take off weight, similar range and performance with the only major differences being that it can land in a much smaller space and can handle serious 40kt winds without incident. The licence required is the PPL(G) which requires more hours than the microlight but then the aircrafts abilities are much broader.
