Commander Elite Single Place


The single-person Commander has center-line thrust to increases pitch stability and decrease drag. It takes up to a 67-hp Rotax 582 engine, but passes as an ultralight when equipped with a 40-hp Rotax 447. Cruising speeds range from 50 to 65 mph, depending on engine choice. All models can be upgraded to larger engines. Engines options include: 40 hp Rotax 447,52 hp Rotax 503,67 hp Rotax 582, and Hirth 3202 and 3203.


The Air Command Sports Elite is a kit-built gyroplane built in the USA since the early 1990s. Powered by a Rotax 532 engine, the aircraft can take off within 600 feet in still air and can land within 10 feet. The cruising speed is 60 - 80 mph.


Around 65 of the kits were imported into Britain but, after a number of fatal accidents, the aircraft type was grounded by the CAA. After several modifications type regained a flying permit and flew successfully for several years until the CAA again grounded the type.
