With its modern styling and high performance, the MTO Sport turns heads wherever it goes and there is no shortage of takers for Demonstration Flights! Some of the advantages of the MTO Sport over conventional fixed-wing aircraft:
- Open cockpit fun while remaining well protected from wind and rain.
- Turbulence has little or no effect - no bouncing around!
- Minimal take-off distances (typically 150-450 feet).
- Very short landing distances.
- Wide speed range, with a very low minimum speed safely possible.
- An MTO Sport costs around 10% of the cost to own and operate a helicopter yet can accomplish 90% of what a helicopter can do. Unlike a helicopter, an AutoGyro cannot hover, take off or land vertically.
