Xenon Gyroplanes Xenon

Xenon was designed by French aircraft designer Raphael Celier and was manufactured in Poland to the French Ultralight category standards.
This high performance ultralight autogyro was available as a kit or ready to fly. Registered as an LSA.
Delivered fully factory built starting at $61,000 in 2009.
The composite structure is the airframe, providing lightness and incorporating a full roll cage to protect the occupants. The cabin is 10" wider than a Cessna 172 and the two pilots are separated by a 10" console and arm rest. Behind the seats is a very large luggage compartment. The Aircopter rotor blades are aluminum yet use titanium for strength and tip weighting for higher inertia. The DUC R propeller features a spoon blade with a wider tip and built in feathering.  It is carbon forged under high pressure and a carbon fiber spinner is fitted.
The box tail section is directly in the propeller slipstream and is on a long lever arm for effectiveness with or without engine power. The 28" high cabin is soundproofed, with interior carpeting and heated leather bucket seats, and the Xenon meets European noise standards.
The Xenon is available with a choice of 3 different engines. The standard model comes with a Rotax 912S Engine that delivers 100 horsepower. The 914 Model features a Rotax turbo that delivers 115 horsepower for up to 5 minutes after which the engine delivers a continuous 100 horsepower. The high altitude or extra climb ability model is the 912 RST version which has a Rotax 912 sporting a custom designed Mitsubishi turbo delivering 122 horsepower for take-off followed by a continuous 110 horsepower with full time turbo boost.  
The doors are removable for flight, leaving a full wrap around optical windshield with overhead windows and foot well windows, allowing near unobstructed viewing.  The instrument panel is shock mounted to be vibration free and includes full instrumentation for flight performance and engine monitoring.  Flight instruments include:  altimeter, airspeed indicator and vertical speed indicator.  Rotor tach and fuel are separate gauges while graphic digital engine monitor uses colored LEDs to keep track of engine tach, CHT and EGT gauges, volt/amp meter, oil pressure and temperature, fuel flow, turbine temperature and manifold pressure.  There is a 12 volt power plug for the portable GPS or MP3 player.  Options include intercoms, VHF radio and transponder with altitude encoder.
The console arm rest puts the throttle and 280 rpm pre-rotator under one hand. Circuit breakers control the panel and landing lights and overhead heat vents are fitted.
Options vary depending on the model but your Xenon is available with propeller spinner, special metallic paint, cabin and blade covers, larger rotors, removable joystick, adjustable pedals, heated leather seats or a ballistic parachute.
