Cavalon: Design to take off


In a spectacular way, the preparations for the special exhibition “Design on Stage”: The ultralight gyrocopter “Cavalon” by the German company AutoGyro GmbH from Hildesheim, has been lifted high into the air by industrial climbers. Ever since, the gyroplane hovers in the Red Dot Design Museum’s stoker’s hall (Schürerhalle) and proves that elaborate designs are very important in various industries – also in aviation.

In the “Cavalon”, pilot and passenger can sit next to each other and enjoy the fascination of flying. The monocoque construction made of composite materials provides the ideal balance of performance and weight and thus high safety and efficiency. With their decision, the expert jury of the Red Dot Award honoured the aircraft’s harmony between interior and exterior.
