US Grypolane Manufacturers
and Distributors

On this page is a list of manufacturers that offer for the US market complete kits* of gyroplanes that may qualify as a light-sport aircraft. The manufacturers include US manufactures and overseas manufacturers with established distribution channels in the US. In some cases, a manufacturer may have some models that are available overseas but not in the US.

The list doesn't include manufacturers who only offer partial kits or plans-only, or only models intended to be ultralights.

*Most light-sport gyroplanes in the US are either custom-built or assembled from a kit and certificated as Experimental Amateur-Built (E-AB). Because FAA regulations don't currently allow factory-built light-sport gyroplanes to be certificated as Special LSA (SLSA), they effectively prevent factory-built light-sport gyroplanes unless they are certificated as Experimental Exhibition, which places severe restrictions on how and where an aircraft may be operated. Another exception for factory-built gyroplanes is if they are employed for public use, such as law enforcement.

Below, you can click on the name of a manufacturer to view more information about that manufacturer, including gyroplane models offered in the US and a link to the manufacturer's website or its sales representative in the US.
