Technical data

Our ELA gyroplane is at the cutting edge of light aircraft technology. Naturally, that makes it a reference for other manufacturers.

The main frame is made from stainless steel tubes and sheets cut with CNC laser machinery and welded by TIG (tungsten inert gas).

The use of the stainless steel is to guarantee the absence of corrosion under even the most adverse conditions. The main frame is designed and tested to withstand 5 Gs loads with maximum weight at takeoff. This gives us great reliability.

The rotor control system is duplicated to be able to pilot from both seats. Like the frame, it is made of stainless steel.The rotor control system of the gyro is mounted on stainless steel ball bearings with ZZ protection. The two joysticks consist of a "top gun" type stick with rotor trim controls and radio button (ptt) control.

The rotor head consists of parts tooled with a CNC machine. The parts are made from stainless steel, high strength steel and 7075 T6 aluminium alloy. The bolts used are from aeronautical quality, which guarantees their reliability and standardization. The rotor head lodges the advanced pre-rotator and trim systems that are characteristic features of our gyroplanes.

The autogyro's cabin is manufactured from carbon fibre and epoxy resin using state-of-the-art techniques for composite materials. Our plant has the right facilities for using advanced techniques, including air-conditioned cabins, curing furnaces and humidity attenuation systems.

The tail unit is manufactured from carbon fibre and epoxy resin. Its aerodynamic design was carefully studied to lend the steering outstanding stability and depth that are unmatched by other gyroplanes in the same category. The tail unit has been successfully tested to demonstrate its strength at the maximum gyroplane speed.

The ELA rotor is responsible for 90 percent of our gyro superb performances.

It is manufactured from a combination of aluminium/fibreglass and carbon with epoxy resin. The rotor blades are manufactured using techniques designed at our own plant and which have been certified by the Civil Aviation Department. The certification tests have proved that our rotor is extremely strong. The blade can support traction loads of up to 26,000 Kg, whereas the top flight load does not exceed 6,500 Kg. Minimal vibration, quality finish, performance and strength are the perfect touches that set our autogyro apart from all others.
