Rotorvox C2A
 
Rotorv-C2A-01
 
The Rotorvox C2A is a two-seat autogyro developed in Germany.
 
Structurally, the C2A is largely carbon-fibre monocoque. The fuselage pod contains a protective cell for the side-by-side seating behind a large, forward hinged, three piece canopy. A faired pylon, mounted immediately behind the cell supports a two blade aluminium rotor and behind it a 73 kW (98 hp) Rotax 914 liquid-cooled flat-four engine drives a pusher three blade propeller. The rotor is pre-rotated hydraulically.

Flat-sided tail booms are held away from the fuselage on short stubs and each mounts a straight-tapered fin and rudder, their tips linked by the tailplane. There are shallow, long ventral fins. The C2A has a short-legged, wide track tricycle undercarriage with its mainwheels near to the forward end of the booms and a nosewheel under the forward fuselage.
 
First flown around 2009, at least two prototypes were flown over five years of development before C2A deliveries began in October 2014.
