With the Calidus, the world is yours to discover with new perspective.
The new Calidus draws on the experience of the MTO3 Eagle gyroplane, combining the exceptional performance of the Eagle with the luxury of an enclosed cockpit and generous luggage storage to create an exceptionally quiet, comfortable and extremely enjoyable cross-country aircraft.
The Calidus is the ideal addition to our MTOsport. Since its launch in 2009, it enjoys great popularity and extends our product range. As a closed gyro, it is perfect for flight zones with cooler or unstable weather as it offers its passengers superior comfort with enhanced performance.
Features include the proven Rotax engines separated by a firewall from the self-supporting body cell of fiberglass/carbon fibre. The optional 'summer canopy' allows the aircraft to match the season and also provides clear vision for photographic missions.
Calidus is perfectly suited to long-haul flights, the innovative aerodynamics improve the engine efficiency and range compared to the Eagle, while offering pampered surroundings to manage your journey.
The inside of the Calidus guarantees first class comfort combined with the upmost safety. The individually adjustable pilot seat offers a ideal seating position with enough room for pilot and passenger. The spacious cockpit can be equipped with different instrument layouts depending on certification requirements and customer’s needs. This way it is possible to integrate, for example, two side by side displays (GPS, EFIS) and many other features.
The standard instruments include a compass, altimeter, air-speed indicator and operating hours as well as displays for the engine and rotor speed, oil and cylinder temperature and oil pressure. Our in-house installation is completed with optional high-class ANR (active noise reduction) headsets.
