MTOsport Classic

With its modern styling and high performance, the MTOsport Classic turns heads wherever it goes and there is no shortage of takers for Demonstration Flights! Some of the advantages of the MTOsport Classic over conventional fixed-wing aircraft:

  • Open cockpit fun while remaining well protected from wind and rain.
  • Turbulence has little or no effect - no bouncing around!
  • Minimal take-off distances (typically 150-450 feet).
  • Very short landing distances.
  • Wide speed range, with a very low minimum speed safely possible.
  • An MTOsport Classic costs around 10% of the cost to own and operate a helicopter yet can accomplish 90% of what a helicopter can do. Unlike a helicopter, an AutoGyro cannot hover, take off or land vertically.

MTOclassic Kit Pricing Starts at $70,000

There are many well thought out design features which make the MTOsport Classic highly durable with a long life expectancy and set the MTOsport Classic apart from its competitors. Some of these features include the following:

  • The MTOsport Classic airframe is manufactured from high-grade TIG welded stainless steel which is electro-polished to give it amazing durability and a great appearance.
  • The MTOsport Classic is powered by the reliable industry-standard Rotax 912 ULS aircraft engine, which provides excellent performance. Of course, the Rotax 914 Turbo is also available as an option giving even better performance.
  • The tail unit, nacelle, propeller and the main landing gear are manufactured from high-quality composite materials.
  • The rotor system is extruded from aviation-grade aluminum with a NACA 8H12 airfoil section.
  • The hub bar is reputed to be one of the strongest designs around and used in all aircraft manufactured by Auto-Gyro Germany.
  • The MTOsport Classic is the first aircraft to gain approval under the German regulations for Ultralight AutoGyros. The strict German noise regulations ensure that the MTOsport Classic is very quiet.
  • Superb quality factory construction and finish.
  • Three standard paint colors at no additional cost, custom paint available for an additional fee.
